It's about time we get back to some old school favorites, and horseshoes are a good place to start. The horseshoe has a long history, with Christian origins and Egyptian roots. It's going to turn into a long history class if we nail it down one by one so let's stick to the contemporary and very Western-inspired tattoo design. 

Horseshoes are now a widely used symbol in traditional American tattoos because of the good luck it's believed to bring. From a personal point of view, I think it is a very Western styled image as well with the cowboy and horse accessory vibes it gives off.
