Idea Tattoo 153 October 2010

In stock


This issue’s special is dedicated to good luck symbols.

You can find the four-leaf clover designed in various tattoo styles (Celtic, realistic, new school and old school among others), on its own or in combination with other lucky images. The classic lucky numbers (3, 7, 13 and 22) drawn in various styles and for anyone who wants to make up their own lucky number, there is a complete set of numbers drawn with the four-leaf clover.

Together with the four-leafed clover, the horseshoe is probably the most well known lucky charm. Its use as a good luck symbol has two opposing interpretations: according to one tradition, the ends must point downwards to let the luck “fall” on the house, while another states that downward pointing ends let bad luck flow away and if they are pointing upwards it means everything good is preserved.

This double interpretation can also be see in tattoos where the horseshoe is depicted in both ways.

Also in this issue: lucky words, leprechauns, rabbit’s feet, Irish lucky symbols, tiny fairies, butterflies, roses, flowers, cowboys, Celtic triskelions, Scandinavian valknuts, magical symbols like the hand with an eye on its palm (the “all-seeing” eye) and the Egyptian scarab beetle… and much more!
