Richard Hale is a tattoo enthusiast who studies and researches tattoo symbolism, meanings, and history.


One popular tattoo theme that you may want to consider is the lucky tattoo theme. Lucky tattoos symbolize good luck and good fortune. Any symbol or element that represents good luck may be included in this tattoo theme. Lucky tattoo designs portray a variety of symbols that represent good luck and good fortune. Lucky tattoo symbols can include dice, four leaf clovers, horseshoes, and the number seven. Lucky tattoo designs are usually designed with more then one symbol. In fact, lucky tattoo designs usually portray many symbols of good luck. Lucky tattoo designs are very meaningful and can be sported by both sexes.

In this article, we will discuss lucky tattoos and lucky tattoo designs. We will also review lucky tattoo meanings and you will have the opportunity to view several lucky tattoo designs pictured below. In the end, we hope that you are able to find ideas and inspiration for your next tattoo design.



When it comes to tattoos that represent "good luck", there are several symbols that can fit the bill. Lucky tattoos include a variety of different tattoo symbols. In many cases, multiple good luck symbols are often designed in one single tattoo together. In this article, we will discuss all the different tattoo symbols that are appropriate for "good luck" tattoos. Pay close attention to the tattoo gallery on this article so you can get an idea of what you want when you decide to get your next tattoo design.

One of the most popular symbols across the world that represent good luck is the famous four leaf clover. The four leaf clover is very rare and hard to find. If one is lucky enough to find it in the mist of all the clover, they are sure to have luck on their side. The four leaf clover is a Celtic symbol, therefore, it may be designed in Celtic knotwork. The four leaf clover can be designed with several different "lucky" tattoo symbols, such as diamonds, stars, or cherries.

The number 7 is considered to be a lucky number to many different culture and civilizations. Some people portray the number 7 as the "perfect number". There may be no bigger reference to the number 7 then in the Bible. There are many things associated to the number 7 in the Bible. For starters, God created the world in 7 days. There are 7 days to a week. The 7th day is the Sabbath, which is Sunday. There are 7 seas in the world. There are also 7 natural wonders and 7 continents. The number 7 can also be associated to Heaven.

When it comes to tattoos that represent luck, there are a variety of tattoo symbols available. Tattoo symbols such as the horseshoe, four leaf clover, and the number 7 can be designed alone to represent luck. However, such symbols as diamonds, cherries, and swallows are usually not designed alone to represent luck. Therefore, these symbols are usually designed with other tattoo symbols that represent luck. Together, these symbols can complete a beautiful design to represent good luck. Below, you can find a list of all the appropriate tattoo symbols used in "lucky" tattoos.

  • Crowns
  • Stars
  • 8-Ball
  • Cherries
  • Cards
  • Number 7
  • Dice
  • Four leaf clovers
  • Swallows
  • Horseshoe
  • Flames
  • Diamonds
  • Roses
  • Lady Luck
  • Black Cats
  • Skulls
  • Anchors
  • Number 13
  • Leprechauns



Card tattoos are also considered to be a lucky tattoo symbol. Cards can be portrayed with stars, cherries, horseshoes, and any of the symbols listed above. Card sharks or those who make a living playing cards may wear such tattoos for good luck. The cards in the designs may show a royal flush, straight, or have four aces. Whatever cards you choose is up to you. You may prefer a queen of hearts or a king of diamonds for your design.

Dice are another popular tattoo symbol considered to be a lucky tattoo. In most cases, the dice will either total "7" or "11". Both 7 and 11 are winners in many dice games. Diamonds and roses are also included in lucky tattoo designs. Although these tattoo symbols don't represent luck when designed alone, they are appropriate when added to a horseshoe, number 7, or four leaf clover.

Lady Luck is also a good luck tattoo symbol. These tattoo designs often portray Lady Luck with four leaf clovers, diamonds, an eight ball, or with cards and dice. Some tattoos may portray a four leaf clover with "Lady Luck" inked below the clover. Some may just have Lady Luck inked alone. Make sure you take the time to view the tattoo gallery on this page so you can see the different ways lucky tattoos are designed.

Since there are so many appropriate tattoo symbols that are defined as "lucky symbols", there are several unique tattoo designs that can be created. You can use any of the tattoo symbols listed above in your lucky tattoo design. This gives you plenty of options to consider when thinking about lucky tattoo designs. You can add 2-3 of these symbols in one big design or you can get most of them tattooed alone. Since there are so many to choose from, you shouldn't have no major issues on choosing a design.

Lastly, as you are now, make sure you take the time to do your own research online. There are plenty of legit tattoo sites online. This will give you a chance to view different tattoo designs and help you get an idea of what you would like to get tattooed. Make sure you don't rush. This is very important to remember. Men and women that get inked on an impulse usually end up with regrets later on down the road. Remember, this tattoo is for life. Make sure the tattoo you choose is the right one for you. This is why research is important. If you wish to view more tattoo designs, symbols, meanings, and ideas, be sure to follow the links below. Thanks for your visit.

      I guess I never considered luck as a tattoo category, but your hub shows they definitely are. I'm surprised though that you didn't include the Chinese character for luck, which is fairly common here on the West Coast. Voting this Up and Beautiful.
