The red mandala around Om is a crown chakra of lotus which is a symbol of Purity and salvation followed by rays and spirals in the end are the energy radiating from this universe.

The Psychedelic effect on this  mandala tattoo is associated with the mind and chaos it has all the time. Symbol of Zodiac sign Aries is an animal ‘Ram’ which is also associated with psychedelic effect. All these chaotic abstract designs around the mandaka are the representation of a psychedelic mind affected by drugs. Aries is a symbol of self reliance and courage. But its aftereffects are development of a selfish nature due to long term loneliness and an urge to establish dominance over others. The person who is alone and idle always has an evil mind and darkness prevails in him.

This mandala tattoo has colours in the edges and blank space in the centre showing the contrast of life phases. 

The colour effect represents the revolving wheels of life cycle. Centre has flower design in dots and no colour is present which is a calm phase while the colourful edges are chaotic. A day in the life of a person starts with calmness and then slowly progresses to the chaotic experience he feels throughout the day. The cycle repeats everyday. And everytime in the night he again feels calm and sleeps. These colours are different experiences he feels and dots are the faded calmness.
