So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed through pics or on youtube (if you follow me there) but I am a tattooed lady. I absolutely love tattoos and I actually just got two new ones last week while I was on vacation. I am actually planning on having a nature/wicca based arm sleeve. I know a lot of other Wiccans tend to enjoy tattoos (obviously not all, just making a generalization) so I thought you guys might enjoy talking about how we can make our tattoos magickal.
So when one gets a tattoo there is a good chance that what you’re getting on your body has some sort of meaning. It could be to honour a loved one, to remember a piece of your childhood, to show your love for a certain show/movie/book, etc. Well when doing a spell we do something similar. We give our spell an intent. Infusing a tattoo with magick is much of the same. You find a design you want and you infuse that design with your intent.
When it comes to what kind of things you may want to put on your body for magickal purposes there are tons of options. You could create a sigil and infuse it with your intent. Some examples of some intentions you may want to give to a tattoo sigil are protection, positivity, love, happiness, laughter, prosperity, etc. You could also get a tattoo that represents your dedication to the wicca path, a specific wiccan tradition, or even a particular deity. I know at some point I want to get a tattoo to dedicate to Gaia.
There are two main ways to go about getting these magickal tattoos. The first option, which is not one I am necessarily recommending as it a bit dangerous, is stick and poke tattoos. If you have a simple design you want to get, you could attempt to do it on your own. This is a great method if you want a more hands on approach to infusing the tattoo with your magickal intent. Make sure you have the proper equipment when you do this though. You can buy kits for this on amazon I believe. The 2nd method, which is what I personally would do, would be to get someone to create me a tattoo design. I then would take the time to focus on giving that design my intent and meditating with it. Then, when it is time to get the artist to tattoo me, I would try my hardest to meditate (or at the very least focus on my intent) while they do their work.
