King Tut Tattoos

King Tut is among one of ancient Egypt’s best known pharaohs, likely due to the recent discovery of his tomb, as early as the 1920s, and its preservation and exhibition. The golden death mask King Tut was buried in is an instantly recognizable image, signifying Egyptian royalty, earthly pleasure, and lives of hedonism associated with the Pharaohs both in life and after death. Tattoos of King Tut can also signify power, because of the power the title of Pharaoh carried in ancient Egypt. King Tut’s name can be translated to “Living Image of Amun.” Amun was the name of an Egyptian deity who ruled as king of the gods. A King Tut tattoo could signify a connection to or reverence for the supernatural or divine. King Tut was only nine years old when he became Pharaoh and reigned until his unexpected death at nineteen. His tomb was found in 1922 by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, almost completely intact.
