Default Should I get this tattoo of a goddess on my back?

http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/i/20...y_Tattoo_J.jpg

Thinking of getting a tattoo. I do not have any tattoos, but after so many trails and tribulations in my life, I still feel that i'm still getting nowhere. This tattoo of the goddess would be a guardian angel to lead me to the correct path in life.

This tattoo depicts "Kuan Yin" or Goddess of Mercy, which is an asian equivalent of Mother Mary. The Goddess of Mercy represents compassion, mercifulness and peace. The lotus on her head symbolizes purity.

The turbulent waters below represents life struggles. The dragon which in western countries is usually maleovent, is benevolent in asian countries. The dragon represents courage, strength and vitality.

The Goddess seemingly floating above the water shows that one would always come ahead of life's struggles if one presevere. The hand symbol she is showing is a "Shuni Mudra", which means patience/preseverance.

At least you know what it means, and have some reasoning. Its all personal, if you think it/she represents you well, do it.

While judging picture as an art or judging its beauty , I am not a fan of it, but nothing bad.

Why would you want someone on the internet to tell to whether or not you should get a tattoo ? You need to know that yourself...
picture looks nice tho

As a first tat that shit has some major details and shit. You should try something smaller first to get the feel.

Not going to tell the OP to get on or not to get one but personally I wouldn't get a tattoo.

Granted, he has a good reason for it but you don't need a tattoo of a goddess to look over you like an angel if you are disciplined yourself.

This is what I was thinking too. That's a HUGE tattoo to start with. And backs (especially along the spine) are pretty painful. It looks good though. When I saw "this goddess" I thought it was gonna be a link to a pic of like Kate Upton or something
