If you have loved our article on esoteric tattoos, then you might be interested in some witch tattoos.

For centuries, witches have fascinated people from many cultures. These strong female figures, connected with the forces of Nature and spiritual world and practicing magic, have been both feared, hunted and worshipped. Nowadays, we don't burn witches anymore, fortunately, and we are living in an open-minded society where people can practice Wicca or go the movie and open their TV to see heroines into witchcraft. In the dark age of humanity, though, people were irritated by the independance, freedom and knowledge of these women, accused of lust, business with the Devil and other crimes such as murders and blasphemy.

Fantastic literature has contributed to the charisma of the witches (and not just Harry Potter), and indeed their popularity has increased with apparition in movies and TV series, such as the Disney's animations, Bewitched, Charmed and The Wizard of Oz. They are not all flying on brooms and wearing hats, but they are all enchanting enough to inspire fantastic tattoos... Humorous or dark, sexy or poetic, these witch tattoos could put a spell on you...
