Title: Kemetic/Egyptian Themed Tattoos...
Post by: meskhenet on February 20, 2019, 07:49:52 am
Em Hotep!

I saw a popular thread regarding Kemetic tattoos, but it was about ten years old, so I thought I'd start up a new one. In May, I'm going to be getting a piece of Yinepu on the back of my calf, and I'm hoping I can get more later on. What kind of tattoos do you all have that are related to the Netjer?

I do not have any Kemetic/Egyptian tattoos yet but hope to get some in the future.

I would love to see what tattoos others have for inspiration :).

These all sound really nice!  ;D I'd like to get some pieces dedicated to Sobek and Sutekh as well. I'm hoping to get more pieces soon!

I have the eye of Horus on my forearm and a bracelet tattoo with an ankh and my kids initials.  Had them for many years before I discovered Kemetic Orthodoxy.

i've been thinking about getting one as my first tattoo, but i'm not sure what i'd want it to be :P i like the idea of getting it after i complete the beginners course, so i still have a good few weeks to think about it, and by then the current semester will be over and i could get it done over the summer. happy birthday to me!

On my upper arm I have a blue lotus with an ankh rising out of it :).
I've been playing around with the idea of getting something for my mother as well .

I have a (kind of abstract) tattoo for Dad on my spine-- it's a coyote skull split by arrows, and has to do with some of our first interactions. My calf has a fox and hawk intertwined with a red ribbon that becomes a flower. It wasn't intended to be a kemetic tattoo, but now has very personal symbolism for me as a tribute to Set and Heru-Wer. I also have a Ma'at feather on my hand!

I want to get either my line-ups' names or my shemsut name somewhere, but I can't decide. (Is it weird to get your own name tattooed on yourself? I don't know :P )

Outside of the House, I also have plans for a devotional tattoo for Dionysos. Just working out the details in my brain, as it's a fairly recent request.

I am going to suddenly stop lurking to come comment...

I am getting the wadjet on my wrist at some point, but what I am currently most excited about is the plan for my back piece I am getting in honor of my Father, Sobek-Ra. I have narrowed it down to 3 artists with the help of my partner (who is also a tattoo artist), and I just have to start saving. It is going to be huge though, so it is some years off because of the very great expense of it. I am sure it will be money well-spent, though.
