Fudo Myo-O tattoo by Stewart Robson

Fudo Myo-O , meaning 'Immovable King of Light,' 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 Fudo Myo-O protects its wearer from evil and natural disasters (like fires).
