Sun Tattoos with Horus on Arm

Sun Tattoo with Horus by awesomeida

The Sun tattoo is on his left upper arm. Under the blue part was a scar. Primarily he wanted to cover up the scar, however he decided to create a sun tattoo dedicated to his son Daniel.

The Sun tattoo shows 4 elements: fire, earth, water and air. which correspond to the 4 nature-elements. The first element is the sun which means fire. The second element is the blue part within the tribal – which means water. The third one is the tribal itself. Its loops are representing the wind – which means air. The fourth and last element is the earth. This is where we all live and where we all go when we die. The name Daniel and his birthdate are representing Daniel himself, meaning the element earth.

Sun Tattoo second meaning:
You can see an eye within the sun. Horus is one of the most ancient deities of the Ancient Egyptian religion. One of the most important associations with Horus is the eye of Horus which was an Egyptian symbol of power. The two lines coming out of the eye describe the injury Horus got in a struggle with his uncle Set, who has murdered Osiris in attempt to seize the Egyptian throne. Horus was also a guardian for children. All these meanings are possible reasons for my choice of this symbol.

The eye of Horus is placed within the sun, standing above the wind, the water and the name (and therefore the person) Daniel.
The sun – as a symbol for life – got the power for guarding Daniel through the ups and downs of life (wind, water).
