Egyptian Sleeve Tattoo Design by BringTheKaos Egyptian Sleeve Tattoo Design by BringTheKaos
This is an Egyptian sleeve tattoo design for the character "Rat" in my novels. That would be the sun god Ra at the top, with the sun balancing atop his pretty head. Next is the Udjat, the eye of Horus, which symbolizes healing and protection, and it is perched on top of the great pyramid like the all-seeing eye. Next is the sphinx, standing as the guardian of the pyramid, greeting whomever should approach with a great unsolvable riddle.
Below the sphinx is Uraeus, the cobra of legend who symbolizes protection, usually depicted spitting fire at enemies. However, in mine he is spitting ancient egyptian glyphs. The five symbols, in descending order, are Ankh (eternal life), Amenta (the Underworld), Was (power and dominion), the next one is just a glyph for a crown, symbolizing royalty or supremecy, then the udjat again.
Below Uraeus is Anubis, God of the Underworld, holding his ankh sceptor. Finishing it up is the tail of Uraeus, which snaked around (pun intended) Rat's wrist. Whew. I rule.

wow, thanks very much :D I don't do tattoo designs very much, it was just something I decided to tackle a couple of times. I do have a couple more, but they’re not nearly as detailed. These are the links if you wanted to see them. Thanks for checking out my art, I appreciate it!
