I don’s see a symbol of the dung beetle with wings beneath a golden disc, which is representative of the Aton [or Aten.] Over the course of years I have discovered it to be a symbols that can be used for protection. I’ve noticed that the subject of tattoos has been discussed in some pages. One has to be very careful what is put on the body in indelible ink. The reason that the Bible warns against placing marks upon the physical body is that the most people had become ignorant of the meaning of many symbols at that time. The Golden age, or Satya Yuga in the Vedic, was past.
The place to put a tattoo for protection is on the upper back in the area of the right shoulder blade.
The only symbols I personally know that can be given complete trust is that I describe above …and never with wings folded, they must be extended (although I have wondered if there should be a specific number of divisions (feathers) altogether (I recently learned of a source to consult on that matter and will post it here after I do) yet I would be more that willing to wager that 72 in number would be the most effective, if not in fact the only correct sum to consider.
The second symbol one can be assured is completely safe and quite effective is that of the Sanskrit for the bij, OM or AUM. as is thus, ॐ … That is the only tattoo that I do have and where I indicated above.

I want to get this tattoo because it looks really cool but I don’t know what it means. I know it’s Egyptian but I can’t find the meaning. It’s like an m and the middle line has a short line a little bit above the bottom. The middle line is sort of like an upside down cross. Could you help me out

You all have Egyptian and African symbols separate. Last time I recalled Egypt was in Africa. Why separate them?

Because they are a large category needing their own page.

Are there any symbols in Hieroglyphs for Egyptian Gods? Such as Isis Ramsis, Heta etc?
Seen them on Ancient Tablets but not illustrated here.
