Tattooed Tarot review by Spacegoat
I didnít know what to make of this deck when I first got it. I had to leave it alone for a while, as there is so much to take in. Symbols from our multi-cultural world abound, but non-sequentially - i.e. unlike the familiar format which characterises decks such as the Ages tarot, Haindlís tarot, or the Ancestral Path deck (to name but 3). Within these 3 decks, each suit contains images from various countries in the world and their people. Within the Tattoo Tarot, familiar cultural symbols are not kept within particular suits, but pop up randomly.
This isnít a criticism! Itís simply the reason I found this deck difficult to understand at first. However I was initially struck by the high quality of the art and Iím glad I returned to it, as it has now become one of my favourite... read more reviews or write a review.
