The Egyptian civilization thrived in early days. Known to be clever and ritualistic people, some of their greatest developments include the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Apart from these architectural marvels, something that made this race so famous is their beautiful Egyptian tattoos. The symbolisms behind these hieroglyphs are just some of the many reasons why people – from then until now – prefer tattoos of Egyptian ciphers. One of the most famous styles is that of Anubis, the Egyptian god depicted as half-man and half-jackal. The sitting or standing form of Anubis, even his name, is considered a great piece for a design.
Egyptian tattoos of cats, on the other hand, are considered favorites by many women for their beauty and style. One of the best examples is the goddess Bastet, who is half-woman and half-cat. She is the deity of the sun, moon and cats. Apart from its lovely design, she is also known to symbolize protection from harm and disaster. Some of the most popular styles for both sexes are tattoos of Egyptian cartouches. This oval object is where the name of the person can be written down in hieroglyphs. If you want a truly symbolic ink for your first time, or if you want to add representative emblems to your body, then you should ask your tattoo artist for any of the aforementioned Egyptian tattoos.
