Intrigued by the unknown or spiritual mysteries, then these planchette tattoos will surely entertain!

When first popularized the planchette was a small heart shaped piece of wood fitted with pencil holding apparatus used for automatic writing, such pieces of equipment were believed to enable other-worldly spirits to write and communicate with this world. Overtime however, the planchette developed into a simpler non-writing pointing device used in seances for Ouija boards. The idea being that a spirit would move the planchette onto different letters and numbers allowing them to communicate.

Incredibly popular in the Victorian era, planchettes today inspire some creative and colorful tattoos. They are an intriguing and somewhat mysterious design that satisfies intrigue into other-worldly goings on. If you're a fan of the unknown yourself then these planchette tattoos will surely offer some great viewing pleasure!
