Fudo Myo-O tattoo by Stewart Robson

BuddhisT. Literally 'Immovable King of Light,' Fudomyo-O is the Japanese rendition of the Buddhist deity Acalanatha, the wrathful aspect of the Buddha.

A popular tattoo design, Fudomyo-O is usually pictured with a lasso in one hand to bind the faithful, and a sword in the other to cut through ignorance, on a backdrop of fire which purges all wickedness. A tattoo of Fudomyo-O protects its wearer from evil and natural disasters (like fires).
