The symbol is a unalome, a representation of the journey to reach enlightenment. The path starts in the centre of the spiral, and as you continue up or down this path you are wandering, becoming more conscious of your surroundings. When you reach the top of the symbol (the straight line), you have reached enlightenment. Everyone's path is full of twists and turns, life isn't just one straight line #unalome #unalometattoo

"These spires are known as “Unalome” and represent the crown of the Arahants (Enlightened Saints), the spiral stands for the crown at the center of the scalp, and the straight line pointing upwards, representing the straight path to Enlightenment without any wavering behavior, that the Arahants have accomplished." -sak want thai temple tattoos
