Among the most typical designs and their meanings we find:

The ankh, also known as the Egyptian cross, symbol of eternity and infinity. Much used by both boys and girls.

The symbol of a winged woman with open arms, whose specific name is Maat, represents justice and balance.

The god Ra, god of the sun and one of the most important figures of Egyptian mythology, is usually represented with the head of an eagle.

The beetle, which was a sacred symbol and which represents the birth of a new life.

The Eye of Horus represents healing and protection.

These are the most characteristic and common signs of ancient Egyptian culture. As we have already said, even now, currently, after so many years, there are people who are attracted by these drawings, by their strong and deep symbolisms and who choose to tattoo them on their skin. There is not one part of the body preferred over another to make one of these tattoos: all of them are perfect to decorate your skin with one of these Egyptian symbols that make a beautiful effect on your body.

Even the pyramids and pharaohs are very common.


In the Egyptian world there is nothing more popular and characteristic than a mummy. For this reason I chose this tattoo as the main article. Maybe it's not the best mummy we see in this collection nor is it the better tattooed one but even so it's fine, it's a nice tattoo.

More tattooed body areas Also in this case, areas where you can tattoo designs of medium or large size, such as the back, arms, forearm, chest or side.
Most used colors or inks Almost always dull colors. Black and brown shades. These symbols have no relation to overly bright colors.
More men or more women? Is it a female or male tattoo? More men than women. Perhaps the proportion is 70-30 in favor of men.
What is their size? Are they normally large, small or medium? Most of the ones we saw in the gallery are medium and large. We have only seen one or two little ones and minutes; we have not found even one of those who can hardly be seen.
Symbolism or meaning of these reasons Depends on the symbol or pattern chosen. The Eye of Horus, for example, represents magic, protection or order. Another example is the Sphynx cat that represents the goddess Isis, also known as the "Queen of the gods".
Average difficulty of the drawings Normal difficulty, as almost always, except for some designs that have different reasons and require much more time.

A girl's point of view

How attracted are we to the ancient Egyptian civilization? And indeed, if historically this culture has been one of the richest and boasts centuries of study, it is no less in the world of tattoos. There are many people who choose a tattoo with a symbol of Egyptian art and, girls, I believe that there is not a civilization that has the most elegant, beautiful and showy motifs and elements to be the subject of a tattoo. I like to see girls tattooing designs of this style and we are not few in doing it. The story goes hand in hand with these tattoos, so why not immerse yourself in the world of thousands of years ago and redeem one of the elements sacred to the Egyptians, with the meaning it transmits, to tattoo it on our body?
