The ancient Egyptian eye tattoo is believed to have both spiritual and protective powers. The eye, sometimes referred to as the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Ra, is an iconic symbol in the Egyptian culture that is associated with the gods Horus and Ra. It is said to represent the all-seeing eye of divine or cosmic wisdom that can protect against evil. The Eye of Horus is also believed to bring luck and health, along with protection from physical and spiritual harm. This tattoo is worn as a reminder of these protective and benevolent forces.
