Chapter 27:Airbending Master Tattoo

Upon reaching the level of master by completing all thirty-six tiers of airbending, airbenders are tattooed with five light blue arrows: one extending from the base of the spine to the forehead, one for each arm pointing to the hands, and likewise for the legs and feet (when possible).

Most airbenders earn their tattoos later in life, as true mastery over airbending is difficult to learn. However, extremely skilled airbenders may earn them at a young age, with another exception being that airbenders who create a completely new technique are automatically entitled to tattoos.

Avatar Aang received his tattoos when he was only twelve following his invention of the air scooter, despite only completing thirty-five.

This was also the reason why Jiran was worthy to receive his tattoo. When he fought against Amon and the equalist he created a new technique of airbending, maybe even a new sub-bending of Air. Mist Bending.

Mist Bending is seen only in Waterbenders but never in airbenders that's why when he bended a large mist around the arena to obscure his opponent's vision it was a big deal.

And if that's not enough reason then Jiran completed the thirty-six tiers of airbending. Those thirty-six tiers of airbending are 36 airbending moves.

A/N: they didn't say what exactly what is the thirty-six tiers of airbending so I'm just going to put my own interpretation.

"Are you ready Jiran?" Asked Tenzin. This was the first time an airbender outside Avatar Aang's lineage or after a century will become a master.

So there was a lot of people all around the world to attend the ceremony. Powerful and influential figures.

I don't really have more to emphasize here in this ceremony except that it went great and smooth. Jiran mingled with the people, gave thanks here and there for attending but ultimately it was nothing so over the top.

His head was finally bald though, so that's something.

The after ceremony party continued and after having some good old socialization everyone left leaving only Jiran and Tenzin inside the temple.

"Tenzin." He called out.

"What is it?" Tenzin turned his head to face Jiran.

"I have been wondering… even though I'm already an Airbending master, I still don't know anything about our culture. I'm only an airbending master in skills not in spirit"

That was indeed right. Tenzin gave Jiran the tattooing ceremony a bit early even though Jiran was yet to be educated in the ways of Air Nomads because he was the only one after him that was an airbender. He was too excited that he didn't take that factor into consideration.

"And that's why I want to explore the world. My entire life, well atleast most of it was spent here in the cluster of Republic City, it's good here at least in the perspective of an ex-beggar I won't deny that but that's too narrow."

"I want to venture out of the world. See what it has to offer and find out the ways of my people, the Air Nomads. I want to go and visit the four temple"

"Consider this as my pilgrimage," Jiran said.

Tenzin paused for a minute. He was taken aback by Jiran's statement too, however after some deliberation he nodded.

"That is a good thought Jiran, traveling the world to discover our culture is a good prospect. And I support you." With a smile Tenzin said.

"Thank you, Tenzin. For always supporting me." Jiran smiled warmly as he extended his hand for a handshake but Tenzin didn't receive it but instead hugged him.


"Before you venture out of the world you must have your own Sky Bison. You must go to Bhanti island and get your Sky Bison there, I won't be going with you, however since I still need to handle some things here in Republic city." Tenzin said.

"Gotya!" Jiran responded. Then the old airbending master pulled out a token from his robe, a token with the Air Nomads symbol.

"Just give this to the Shaman and she'll know why you came there." Tenzin gave the token to Jiran and the latter grabbed it.

"Thanks Tenzin" He bowed.

"So is that all I need?" He asked.

"That is pretty much it." Tenzin said.

"I'll get everyone here to say their goodbyes" Tenzin was about to walk away but Jiran stopped him.

"No need to inform them of my departure, it won't be long anyway so let's just keep it under. I don't want some drama either hehe" He chuckled.

That Tenzin and Jiran could agree on. If he were to inform everyone, drama would be inevitable especially from Tenzin's children.

"That's all, I'm gonna go Tenzin, take care" . With that, Jiran boarded the small boat from the Air Temple Island and Airbended his way through the water.

He used his airbending as a propulsion to move the boat so it didn't take much for him to cross half the distance however when he was in mid-way throughout the water, he felt his boat rock a bit.

Followed by a sound of splashing water and a small thud he turned around to see Korra.

"Hi, Korra!" Jiran smiled and walked closer to her. The Avatar smiled back at him and grabbed him into a hug.

"I will miss you," She said tenderly. Jiran hugged her back and also said.

"I'll miss you too"

"Take care, Jiran, I'll wait for you"

"Don't worry Korra you won't have to wait for long," And with that the two kissed their goodbye.
