Horseshoe Tattoos Bring Luck and Masculinity
Horseshoes are traditionally held in high regard as being good luck. A horseshoe that is hung above the door way of a barn or home gives the owner of that building luck and prosperity. The horseshoe has to be hung with the ends facing upward so that the luck is caught and if upside down, the luck will pour out. You can take the horseshoe symbol one step further by getting a horseshoe tattoo. Horseshoe tattoos have been popular in the past and are now in style.

Horseshoe tattoos have been tied to good luck and sometimes these tattoos are mixed with other tattoos that have the same connotation. For example a person might have a horseshoe tattoo mixed with a leprechaun tattoo, a unicorn tattoo, or even a shamrock tattoo. Some people feel that they need all the luck they can get. But by combining two tattoo designs together some people feel they it will help acquire more luck than if they just had the regular horseshoe tattoo.

Horse shoes have also been considered a symbol of female fertility. The open ended side of the horseshoe represents the open womb of the woman. The horseshoe purpose, that of shodding the horses of men, and the female purpose, that of giving birth, presents a dual meaning of the horse shoe tattoo. The horseshoe tattoo has its origins in ancient Roman times. The Roman shod their horse’s feet to protect them from the cobblestone streets that line their cities. The horse was a faster and more powerful animal than the oxen or the other animals that were used before it.

The horseshoe tattoo is also popular with sailors. During the Middle Ages the fishermen of coastal villages would put the horseshoe up to bring them luck in their homes. They would also put the horseshoe upon the ship. The horseshoe usually was placed above the captain's door to bring luck to the captain and crew during the voyage. The Navy has adopted the horseshoe design for many of its fighting units.

Horseshoe tattoos can be presented alone as a single tattoo or they may be placed together in design. Horseshoe tattoos blend really well with Celtic designs or tribal tattoos. The popular shape of the horseshoe tattoo can serve as a base to the intricate lattice patterns of either these Celtic or tribal design. This way the design can radiate from the central tattoo. This will give the owner of the horseshoe tattoo a talisman for luck and at the same time they are able to display the Celtic heritage or tribal tattooed that they wear.

No matter what type of tattoo that you decide on your body, you need to make sure that the tattoo represents some thing that is important to you. If you feel like you need more luck you might want to add on a tattoo of a shamrock, a leprechaun, a rainbow, or a unicorn with your horseshoe tattoo. Also angel tattoos can be put together with the luck of the horseshoe. Any combination should strategically placed can give you a unique and individual design.

The Robbie Williams Many Tattoo Designs
Robert Peter Williams also known as Robbie Williams is a Grammy award-winning, singer-songwriter who has over 25 million records sold during his solo career. Robbie Williams has sold more records in the United Kingdom than any other British civil artist in history including the Beatles. That is when you are counting the Beatles as solo artists. Robbie Williams is also known outside his music as the illustrated Man. The illustrated man means that Robbie Williams has his body covered almost entirely with tattoos. Not every inch of the skin is covered but the majority of his appendages, back, torso, and legs have a least one or two tattoos on them. Robbie William tattoos are unique and each one has a story behind it. He is truly a person that gets a tattoo for a reason and not just to show off a piece of body art.

Today Robbie Williams has at least 18 tattoos. One of the most striking tattoos that William sports is the Mori design on his left arm. The tribal symbol makes his left arm look bigger, it gives it a more masculine look. He has a Celtic cross on his right hip that symbolizes the Celtic tradition and the religious backing behind it. The funniest tattoo on his body is a tattoo of a lion. This fearsome creature is put to rest with the words ‘born to be mild’ written underneath it. An oxymoronic jess that symbolizes that he looks like a beast but is a pretty mellow person. Being a true British musician, Robbie Williams has musical notes tattooed across the small of his back and Beatles lyrics underneath them. He also has a tattoo of a saint holding a cross with his grandfather's name underneath it.

To be more cryptic, Robbie Williams has a tattoo of the number 1023. It is rumored that this is a tattoo that honors his best friend Jonathan Wilkes. J and W are the 10th and 23rd letters of the alphabet. It is also rumored that his friend Jonathan Wells has the number 1823 on his arm and the numbers stand for the letters R W. R and W would be Robbie Williams. These numbered tattoos have been a topic of controversy for long time. Many people have made guesses to what the tattoos mean, but that remains a secret on to Robbie.

If you want to go to a tattoo parlor and look at a wall of tattoos and decide what tattoo to get for yourself, you can do the same thing by just looking at Robbie Williams’s body. He has such an array of tattoos that you could pick one and have it copied to your body. But there should be some reason to have that particular tattoo on your body, not just because Robbie the celebrity has the same. It is a good idea to look at the tattoos on his body and then come up with your own ideas of how you match it with another tattoo. Other tattoos you could look at getting along with a Celtic cross are angel tattoos.
