Small line tattoos that I got done 2014/ 2015. I was told the lines aren't the best, though the artist's work isn't bad. It seems straight lines plus difficult location like hands made this tricky. I'm okay with them not being perfect but I will have to find another artist (again...I have tried out three now)
I am saving up for larger and colored tattoos but in the meantime I got these because I was very sure about the symbols. I have studied the occult and mysticism since I was a kid (32 now).
Philosopher's Stone Formula (Alchemy)
Notes: Sulfur (male principle, heat, dry), Salt (Spirit), Mercury (Female Principle, moist, cool) and on top the symbold for day/ purification. This is a reference to a transmutation of the spirit, purification of the soul, a higher conscience.
Lorraine Cross (Hermeticism)
Notes: Hermetic teachings are connected to Alchemy. This is a reference to the Hermetic Maxim "as above so below". Science and spirituality are one.
Notes: Gold in alchemy, male principle
Notes: Silver in Alchemy, female principle
Eye of Horus

Notes: Third eye reference. The third eye is important for intuition, conscience, seeing things clearly, all sorts of spiritual and magickal practices, psychic dreams and visions, seeing paranormal things like energy, "spirits" etc....
Geometric Triangle bangle and Anglo Saxon Runes

Anglo Saxon Runes, 3 months old
From the Anglo Saxon Rune Poem.
Nyd byþ nearu on breostan; weorþeþ hi þeah oft niþa bearnum
to helpe and to hæle gehwæþre, gif hi his hlystaþ æror.
Trouble is oppressive to the heart;
yet often it proves a source of help and salvation
to the children of men, to everyone who heeds it betimes.

I also got a tree of life tattoo done, but I will have to get a better picture of it.
Edit: I added a picture of the tree. I drew it myself and the artist made it look better ;-) In Alchemy a tree of life is often shown with a moon on the left and a sun on the right. But the tree of life is also common in Norse and Turkic (Mongol) Mythology.
