Playing cards and tarot cards have been around for years to add excitement to normal life. While playing cards are all about gambling and the spirit of luck tarot cards are meant to describe the future using traditional symbols. When these cards are used in tattoo designs the effect is impressive and rich. You can see card tattoos ranging from ones with simple black outlines, to those inked in a mix of sepia and black, to those inked in a splash of bright colors like red, green, and blue.
Card Tattoos are full of meaning, and are used in imaginative ways by tattoo artists.
You can find tattoos using symbols like the King of Hearts, the Queen of Hearts, and the Joker to make meaningful statements on life, death, and love. As an unusual idea for a couple in love check out tattoo designs that play on the Ace of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts also makes for beautiful designs, such as a pair of queens in a single design showing women in love, or two sisters’ love for one another. The Joker and the Fool figures can be combined with words to make rich tattoo designs. You also find the Ace of Hearts combining with a skull to make a powerful statement on death in a tattoo idea. A similar theme tattoo using tarot cards instead of playing cards may show a death rider on a horse. Playing cards can be combined with many other elements like flying birds, dices, and colorful patterns to make rich and powerful tattoo designs.
