Ace of clubs: the meaning and combination of the card in divination

Surprisingly, very often people who are absolutely far from the criminal concepts and the world of thieves, are drawn to know the meaning of this or that tattoo. Of course, no one is safe from prison, everyone knows that. "Show me a man with a tattoo, and I will show you a man with an interesting past," wrote Jack London.

Well, sometimes, on your way home on public transport, you may indeed notice a person "with an interesting past" when you see a finger or hand painted with cheap paint. In this article we will talk about the meanings of common prison tattoos, and we will start with finger ring tattoos.

Ace Description

The Ace is a one-point card for the game. In the game he is a high or low ranking card. In a game such as poker or blackjack, it is possible to choose how an ace is played. In solitaire, it is most often a junior card.

According to existing facts began to play cards from the eleventh to the twelfth century. And in Asia, famous for its excitement, there are even documents that describe the game using paper pictures. And even earlier played with bamboo and other tablets. Over time, the game industry has become popular in India, Persia, Egypt, and from there came to Europe. On Russian soil cards were in the twelfth century. And already in one thousand six hundred and forty-nine years, the government banned them.

However, after a while Peter decided to legalize the card game, as he understood that people are still playing them.

The Christian religion called cards a real blasphemy. So clubs (crosses) supposedly mean the very cross on which Jesus was crucified. Ace cards also have a negative meaning for Christians. Spades, for example, are the spears used to pierce Jesus' body. Diamonds represent the nails in the body of Jesus Christ. Worms symbolize the sponge that was used to drink and wipe all those who were crucified on the cross. And yet, in spite of this, tattoos in the form of an ace are still chosen today.

What other tattoos in the zone mean

The rings are not the only kind of prison tattoo. Before I show you other inmate tattoos that are applied to completely different parts of the body, I must say that prison tattoo culture is changing as rapidly as the art of body painting.

The meanings we're talking about in this article were current by the 90s and 2000s. There is no doubt that the tradition of the tattoos is still alive in Russian prisons and will be alive for a long time to come. Tattoos are still beaten with homemade paint made from burnt soles with iodine added. But whether it will stay that way for long, it's hard to say.

By the way, there are also owners of such works among famous personalities. One of them is the controversial mixed martial arts fighter Alexander Emelianenko, about whom you can read in a separate article.

Ace of Diamonds on my back

There were certain requirements for the ace of diamonds on the back with the meaning described above. First, our flap had to differ in color from the entire robe. In the Sakhalin convicts it was originally yellow (the color of the Cossacks from the Amur River), and later such a patch was made black. In addition to the ace of diamonds on the back, the convict's head was half shaved and the letters burned on his forehead ("KAT" - "convict," "hard laborer") were also significant. Later, of course, the branding was abandoned, leaving only the patch and the shaved head.

Ace of clubs: Love and relationships

Straight Position.

When guessing for love, the Ace of Clubs shows that you are affectionate towards your other half (paired with 9 of Hearts), can meet an interesting person or are devoted to your partner. If we talk about the nature of the romantic relationship, we are facing a couple where both people compromise and are willing to work on themselves.

The Ace of Clubs card is also capable of pointing to a marriage bond in the near future. And this union will turn out to be incredibly successful, happy, and secure if the Ace of Diamonds is present.

Inverted Position

Unfortunately, reversing the card signals that your romantic feelings will go unanswered. Perhaps your soulmate isn't right for you because of different income levels or intellectual baggage. This all leads to the possibility that you will simply break up or get a divorce in the near future.

Also, the Ace of Clubs may indicate that only one person is interested in this relationship. And he behaves incredibly persistent, trying to manipulate and pressure to get his own. The presence of Jack of Diamonds signals that the other half is destroying the diviner.
