Wonderfully intuitive goddesses probably don’t need our assistance when it comes to choosing ink designs to adorn their skin, but we think we have a pretty good idea of the type of tattoos a witch would be inclined to choose. In our informative collection of revealing confessions from witches, we learned a ton about the spell-casting badasses, like how dedicated they are to their practices and how huge a role their beliefs play in their everyday lives.
One thing you should definitely understand about witches is that they are queens of rebellion who seek empowerment through the use of witchcraft. Additionally, some witches use ink as power, proudly displaying their magick for all the world to see.
Overall, modern-day witches are so much more than those shallow tropes we see on TV and in films (sorry, Hocus Pocus, but we still love you). You know, the scary-looking, hunch-backed witch crouched over a cauldron cooking up a liquid form of punishment for an unsuspecting victim. In fact, the witches we’ve come to know and admire are simply trying to navigate life in the simplest way possible like everyone else, except they’re totally cool with using rituals, lunar energy and tarot card spreads and casting spells to manifest their innermost desires.
Because witches are our fierce feminist faves — and because it is the month of October, which represents all things mysterious and mystical — we rounded up some of our favorite witch-inspired ink.
What these tiny witch tattoos lack in size, they make up for in undeniable charm and pure ~magic~.
