SYMBOLS OF LUCK
When it comes to tattoos that represent "good luck", there are several symbols that can fit the bill. Lucky tattoos include a variety of different tattoo symbols.

In this article, we will discuss all the different tattoo symbols that are appropriate for "good luck" tattoos. Pay close attention to the tattoo gallery on this article so you can get an idea of what you want when you decide to get your next tattoo design.
One of the most popular symbols across the world that represent good luck is the famous four leaf clover. The four leaf clover is very rare and hard to find. If one is lucky enough to find it in the mist of all the clover, they are sure to have luck on their side. The four leaf clover is a Celtic symbol, therefore, it may be designed in Celtic knotwork. The four leaf clover can be designed with several different "lucky" tattoo symbols, such as diamonds, stars, or cherries.
The number 7 is considered to be a lucky number to many different culture and civilizations. Some people portray the number 7 as the "perfect number". There may be no bigger reference to the number 7 then in the Bible. There are many things associated to the number 7 in the Bible. For starters, God created the world in 7 days. There are 7 days to a week. The 7th day is the Sabbath, which is Sunday. There are 7 seas in the world. There are also 7 natural wonders and 7 continents. The number 7 can also be associated to Heaven.
When it comes to tattoos that represent luck, there are a variety of tattoo symbols available. Tattoo symbols such as the horseshoe, four leaf clover, and the number 7 can be designed alone to represent luck. However, such symbols as diamonds, cherries, and swallows are usually not designed alone to represent luck. Therefore, these symbols are usually designed with other tattoo symbols that represent luck. Together, these symbols can complete a beautiful design to represent good luck. Below, you can find a list of all the appropriate tattoo symbols used in "lucky" tattoos.
- Number 7
- Four leaf clovers

Card tattoos are also considered to be a lucky tattoo symbol. Cards can be portrayed with stars, cherries, horseshoes, and any of the symbols listed above.

Whatever cards you choose is up to you. You may prefer a queen of hearts or a king of diamonds for your design.
Dice are another popular tattoo symbol considered to be a lucky tattoo. In most cases, the dice will either total "7" or "11". Both 7 and 11 are winners in many dice games. Diamonds and roses are also included in lucky tattoo designs. Although these tattoo symbols don't represent luck when designed alone, they are appropriate when added to a horseshoe, number 7, or four leaf clover.
Lady Luck is also a good luck tattoo symbol. These tattoo designs often portray Lady Luck with four leaf clovers, diamonds, an eight ball, or with cards and dice.

Thanks for all your comments.

I guess I never considered luck as a tattoo category, but your hub shows they definitely are. I'm surprised though that you didn't include the Chinese character for luck, which is fairly common here on the West Coast. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

I can't imagine cards being a good luck symbol, at least not for me! Another good hub on tattoos! Can't vote up so I voted interesting.
