8 months ago / By Tattoo.Magz

Santa Muerte tattoos are taking the world by storm. “La Santa Muerte” aka the Saint of Death is said to have healing and protection powers, she can help you overcome your enemies and most importantly, she is said to be in charge of the time and manner of your death. If you please her and have her goodwill, she is said to ensure your safe passage to the afterlife where you are to be joined by your ancestors.

Depictions of La Santa vary between images similar to those of the grim reaper and the more common ones of a lady with skeletal features, often with roses and jewels included in the portraits. The most common image used to depict The Saint of Death is the sugar skull, inspired by the famed illustrator José Guadalupe Posada’s interpretation of “La Calavera Catrina”.
