Along with the surge in popularity of getting tattooed, there has recently been an alarming increase of occult symbols being tattooed on people’s skin. It looks like everyone is choosing esoteric symbols, religious symbols and symbols in general for their tattoos. Symbols are especially popular in dotwork tattoos, where the graphic connotation of this style helps a lot with representing geometric symbols. And it adds to the whole “mystery” aspect too. Can you tell an occult symbol when you see it? We tried to collect the most common ones in this post. You can decide whether to get them inked or not (it’s pretty obvious that you should look into anything you’re about to get tattooed, and not just someones suggestions, even if it’s your tattoo artist suggesting you to add an Eye of Providence here and a pentacle there.) On the spiritual side, some people feel they are getting tattooed with symbols so full of meaning. This depends on how you see spirituality, life and body modification in general. Even if you’re not part of a tribe and tattoos don’t have a social or magical meaning in our society, that doesn’t mean they can’t be viewed in a spiritual sense. You become your tattoos, this you cannot help. Choose the symbols you get tattooed on yourself wisely, because they could influence you more than you’d ever think. Please have a look at the most amazing dotwork tattoo artist who loves to use symbolism in his works, Daniel Meyer.
