Need a little luck in your life? Then these wishbone tattoos might be just what you need!
If you want to be technical, the wishbone is actually the Furcula ('little fork') a small bone found in birds and a few other animals. It is formed by the merging of the two clavicles and for birds serves a primary function of strengthening the chest to cope with the rigors of flying. In folklore however the wishbone has a long association with superstition and divination. According to some it was the Romans who first began the belief of wishbones being lucky and ever since a number of practices have emerged.
At one time balancing a wishbone on your nose while making a wish was the done thing, more recently people believed stroking the bone would bring good look and of course many people today snap the wishbone while making a wish. Of course people also get wishbone tattoos to bring them a little good fortune. So if you're after your own little bit of luck then why not get a small wishbone tattoo!
