Since the beginning of time, humanity has felt a great curiosity for the dark arts and the mysteries they harbor. Tarot is considered one of these arts, because it tries to predict fate by means of representations placed on cards that are read at random.
But what you can't deny is that things are bound to happen, even what you think is chance. This is the reason why men are curious to know what the future holds for them and get their cards drawn from the tarot.
Symbolic of tarot card tattoos
A deck of tarot cards contains 78 cards, divided into two categories: Major Arcana (22 cards) and Minor Arcana (the remaining 56 cards). In this game, the Major Arcana has a particularly important meaning.
These meanings push men to get tattoos of designs inspired by the tarot, designs that can be either monochrome or very colorful.
Here are the main meanings behind each main card:
