jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Hanged man tattoos are inspired by tarot. That card is not a good omen: it means misfortune or choice in the best case.

But the mysterious design is inspiring tattoo collectors fascinated by the esoteric world and ancient designs. Hanged by the foot, the mysterious character of the card could be Nordic god Odin, hanged to the tree of the universe, Yggdrasil. There are also alchemical as well as other religious influences, for example the cross of St Peter. That's the reason why hanged man tattoos are also giving the idea of a sacrifice. But most of their wearer got them for the mysterious and dark look. If you are not afraid to look too macabre and edgy, you could enjoy these wicked hanged man tattoos...
