The god of the dead and afterlife, Anubis, is a popular Egyptian design and this collection of Anubis tattoos features some of the best!

Anubis is the Greek name for the Ancient Egyptian god of the dead and afterlife, who is likewise associated with funerals and mummification. Most frequently depicted as a canine or man with a canine's head, Anubis has become one of the most symbolic and recognized gods of Ancient Egypt. However while Anubis is today a prominent symbol of Ancient Egyptian religion and culture, he played almost no part in classic Egyptian mythology! It's also worth to mention that Anubis' role varied depending on the context and time. Throughout the centuries he has been seen as a protector of graves, an embalmer, the Lord of the Underworld and the carrier of souls into the afterlife!

Thus, Anubis tattoos can have many meanings depending on the person. Whether you want a badass tattoo of the Lord of the Underworld or simply want a cool Egyptian inspired tattoo, Anubis is definitely a design you can enjoy. Take a look at these symbolic Anubis tattoos and get inspired by some sweet Egyptian ink!
