For those who are unfamiliar with the very popular Anubis tattoos – they are Egyptian-based and look amazing when done correctly. In fact, designs featuring Anubis God’s are amongst the most appealing that tattoo artists have to offer. And after looking through this entire list, you will certainly see why so many people enjoy getting them done!
In addition to their cultural backgrounds and appealing designs, Anubis tattoos carry a lot of vibrance and give those getting tattooed an abundance of color combinations to chose from. This allows them to not only stick out well (even from a distance), but to also appear very unique and original to each individual. Given the fact that these tattoos are Egyptian-based, and have to do primarily with Anubis God’s from ancient Egypt, you would think only those with that specific heritage would be seen with them. However, this is not necessarily true, as many people (both Egyptian and non-Egyptian) have Anubis designs tattooed on them. Whether this is because they are ill-informed of the meaning behind this style or because they are obsessed with God’s from this time is not exactly clear, but each tattoo looks great nonetheless.
Since (as you may have guessed) there are a lot of different drawings and sketches of Egyptian Gods, many different styles can be used for Anubis tattoos. In fact, even though traditional and new school are the styles most common used, dotwork, watercolor, and realism is used as well. In addition to the many different styles that are used, there are many different God’s that exist as well. Therefore, if you are someone interested in getting one of these tattoos for yourself, you can choose only the God’s you prefer in order to even further customize your design.
