Hamsa Hand Tattoo Designs

Hamsa Hand Tattoo meaning – you might not know, but the hamsa word means “FIVE“. It means the five fingers from your hand (or any other hand), or the five senses people have. It comes from Hebrew language. In Middle East such hamsa hands are popular amulets among people. Most people believe that this amulet is for protection (like a lighthouse), for courage (like a sagittarius), for confidence (like a wolf), for bravery (like a tiger), for calm (like a jellyfish), etc. In other cultures, such as Islam cultures, hamsa is also called “hand of Fatima“. In other cultures, Jews people call the hamsa the “hand of Miriam“. The hand of Miriam comes from the Bible. Do you want some nice hamsa hand tattoo sets for your new tattoo?

Hamsa hand up or down symbol – there are 2 kings of mansa hands: one that is up (means protection – for example the Grand Buddha keeps his hand up to protect the people that see him), yet the one that is down (means the good things will come). Up could also mean that you tell people to keep away and be afraid. Or to stop. Down could be all about protection and blessing. Do you want some tattoo sets with Hand of Fatima and more?

Does it matter where you have your hamsa hand tattoo?

I don’t think it does. People do it all over, for example: behind the ear, ribs, etc. If you have a big chest, you can do one on your chest too (for men). For women, you can have one on your lower back also. One other meaning of tattoos in general, but also for the hamsa hand tattoo is the cultural appropriation. What does cultural appropriation mean? It means you “adopt” specific parts of other cultures that aren’t yours. It’s a good thing, you can make friends too.
