Tarot Card Tattoos

A tattoo based on Tarot cards provides an intriguing alternative to Kanji symbols or zodiac tattoo designs. Tarot cards first made an appearance in Europe about 500 years ago and are thought to be the forerunners of modern playing cards. Their true origins however, are older... and more mysterious, dating back to Ancient Egypt or perhaps the mystic Kaballah.

Because the 78 cards of the Tarot deck are saturated with symbolism and represent archetypes familiar to virtually every culture, they make excellent source material for tattoos and are well worth looking into.
