In Tattoo Designs by Camille Anders

Egyptian tattoo designs, like many other tattoos inspired from mythologies or ancient cultures, have grown in popularity and represent an excellent exploration of Egyptian art.

Egypt is the mysterious land of the pyramids, pharaohs, mummies and over 3000 years of rich and beautiful history. A land with many magical symbols which typically relate to the gods, life, love, and death and represent divine power, immortality, reincarnation, healing or emblems of authority.

The most famous ancient symbols of Egypt are the hieroglyphs, the pharaohs, the queens, the pyramids, the mummies, the Sphinx, the scarab, the ankh, the ‘all-seeing’ Eye of Horus and the gods depicted with animal heads.

The Egyptian symbols make majestic tattoo designs due to their ornate details and beautiful look, people getting them mostly without considering their true meaning.

In future articles, we will talk about the significance of these symbols to discover which fits best with your personality, but meanwhile, we invite you to discover our selection of the finest Egyptian tattoo designs.
