The irony of this isn't just the beer in hand, something that detracts from experiencing any emotion to it's full potential. It's also in the fact that one would pay another to permenantly etch a tattoo on them from such an existential philosophy. Interesting. Then again, the Buddha did say to find our own paths and not follow blindly the paths of others!

I don't believe I ever said I was a Buddhist Monk. ;)

dude.... tattoo is good....

but its sanskrit and not buddhist phrase.

Yes, but sanskrit is merely a form of writing that is found in buddhism. It is in fact a Buddhist mantra.
