Tattoos of Voodoo dolls
Looking for original designs of tattoos I found with this new trend. Seems that it is still most popular tattoo small dolls in appearance somewhat macabre (sometimes there are some very sweet) crossed by several pins, as the Classic voodoo dolls (or Voodoo). The Voodoo religion (or voodoo) emerges from the mixture of Spanish Catholicism and the beliefs they brought slaves from West Africa. It is the official religion of Haiti, but his influence on popular culture is undeniable, it has become a compulsory reference to represent anything linked to the magic. In fact, are attributed to his priests (bokor) the ability to resurrect the dead, and this becomes the image of zombies, as we know it today.
Another folk element that has transcended the barriers of religion are the voodoo dolls, which are a sort of anthropomorphic figure, usually made of fabric and filled with herbs or other material which is linked with the ‘spirit’ of a particular person. This figure becomes a representation of the person and you tortured puncturing with needles or other rites, with the belief of this damage will be felt by the represented person. It is quite popular in literature and movies, so we probably family. In the world of tattoo Voodoo dolls usually represented in various ways, but in the majority of these appear to be elaborate coarse cloth with buttons as eyes, visible seams and many needles stuck. Some have an appearance more tender and child, while others follow a somewhat macabre aesthetics.
The truth be said, not got any major reference about the possible significance of this type of tattoos, so you must be a very personal symbol, or until it can be matter of fashion. In fact, many urban (such as Emo) tribes have adopted it as a common symbol, probably an apology to the pain and suffering that may feel in this transit we call life. Apart from its possible interpretation, they seem funny to some extent.
