Unalome tattoos are first spiritual symbols. In Buddhism, they are the visual image of reaching enlightnment. The spiral means our struggle with life, while the straight line shows that we have finally found harmony.
Unalome and Lotus Tattoo

Unalomes - You go through all of the complications and hardships of life (the twists and curves of the tattoo design) and eventually come out a changed person on a clear path. These are very simple. I like the more complex ones because I think they are better representations of me and my life.
