140 Râ (or Horus) eye tattoos (and their meanings)

The eye of Ra, sometimes called the eye of Horus, is an Egyptian symbol that is still visible today.

The eye of Ra represents the Egyptian god of heaven (sometimes simply called the sun god) and the ability to both protect you and observe everything you do. It would also symbolize light and all things positive and keep evil spirits away. The other names attributed to this symbol are Wedjat and Oudjat.

The eye tattoo of Ra is a symbol of protection and healing. It is usually represented as a long eye with a line above, to represent the upper eyelid, and two or three other lines under the eye, which start from the outer corner and give it the appearance of a Hawk Eye. It is often done in color (especially green and blue) or in a tribal style, in black ink. There are obviously many variations of this design, depending on the creativity of the tattoo artist and the person who will wear it.

This eye represents the right eye of Horus, who would have been torn from him during the battle for the throne against his brother Seth, after the murder of their father, Osiris, by the latter. Horus, god often represented as a falcon or a falcon-headed man, was also the son of Isis. His right eye, the eye of the sun, was injured during the fight. Another god would have recovered and repaired after the battle and Horus would have chosen to offer it to his father to bring him back to life. That's why this eye has become a symbol of healing and Horus, a protector of the Egyptian people. Ra's eye was thus often placed near the mummies and worn as a jewel.

A common placement of Horus eye tattoos is the scapula or chest. However, it can have a beautiful rendering on any part of the body, since the size and level of detail of the design can easily be adapted. You do not need to get a particularly detailed look at Ra to preserve the symbolism of this object. But if you want your tattoo to be very large, this eye can serve as a complementary image or central point in a larger composition. The musician Robbie William has a tattooed eye on the back of his neck.

If you love symbols and Egyptian mythology or you want a tattoo symbolizing protection and all the good things in life, why not think about Ra's eye-drawing? You can opt for black and white or for color (entirely or by adding some color keys). You can also simply choose a traditional drawing and / or transform it a little, either yourself or with the help of a tattoo artist. If you want to add a personal touch to the tattoo, consider the possibility of placing other patterns that you like, either incorporated in the drawing or placed near it.
