It also makes it possible to carry out the transformation of the person, if the owner wishes to change under the desired psychological image.
If a master undertakes to perform a tattoo in the style of magic signs, he must be well versed in the rules of the symbol. For example, there are several variants of the Agiskhjalm, which has a second name "Helmet of Terror". It is drawn in the form of a snowflake and provides protection against surprise attacks.

But if in its center to inscribe a symbolic image of a face, the picture becomes a protection against souring wine. Such a symbol was inscribed on the bottoms of barrels. Accordingly, the altered image is useless in a person's personal protection.
The same is true of the pentacle. A star with its two rays turned upwards was originally considered a symbol of the head of a sacrificial animal. It carried the meaning of "sacrifice" and "gift to the gods." Later it was used as the official symbol of the Church of Satan, which fundamentally changed the energy of the sign. The drawing no longer carries the meaning of protection, but rather conducts low energies of destruction.

The color combination also requires processing for the sign. More often than not, magical tattoos are depicted in black and white or dark brown outlines. This allows you to create a beautiful effect and achieve a resemblance to the drawings in the manuscripts.
Solar signs are not well suited to the blue spectrum, water symbols do not suit the red and yellow gamut. Air signs are rarely drawn in earth colors, respectively symbols of the earth element are not well suited colors of mind energy or ether. That is why the master must take into account in the work not only the wishes of the client, to be able to offer options that suit his expectations.

On what places on the body to be applied?
In order for a tattoo to acquire magical meaning, it is applied separately from other body drawings.
The most vulnerable places are considered to be:
- The wrist;
- The lower back.
Some symbols may reinforce others. Some are incompatible.
Is there a difference in which place a tattoo is placed?
The same drawings on different places will carry different meanings. If it is a talisman for protection, it is better to do it in a place where no one will see. The perception of energy flows will become more harmonious. Talismans for good luck, on the contrary, should be in a prominent place. Averters for strength must be placed on the lower part of the body - closer to the ground.
TIP! The most powerful place for a tattoo is the palm. All the energy passes through it first.
