As one of the “perfections” of Buddhism, an essential virtue in Hinduism, and an important virtue of Christianity, patience is a virtue sought out by many.
A tattoo of the word ‘patience’ serves as a permanent reminder of the goal to achieve peace with the things that we cannot change.
The opposite of haste, patience reminds us to tolerate annoyances and times of waiting that are beyond our control. Over a lifetime of trials, those who are strong-willed, accepting of others, and able to persist in the face of difficulties can truly achieve this virtue.
The goal of patience is perseverance over impatience and long-term waiting. Personal struggles with achieving patience may motivate a patience tattoo, as will the desire to encourage others to practice this invaluable quality. Achieving patience is a feat of great endurance and fortitude.
Those brave enough to attempt this mastery of restraint often feel rewarded by the delightful fruits of their labor, such as inner peace and the feeling of contentedness.
The font or script selection of the tattoo adds additional meaning to the word. The word can be personalized with a bold font selection, a soft and swirling script, colors that are significant to you, or even your own handwriting to enhance the uniqueness of the ink.
Combine the word with a meaningful image to express your individuality. Placing the tattoo on your feet can serve as a reminder to physically slow down and focus on the present.
