Egyptian Tattoo III by fetishfaerie-stock Egyptian Tattoo III by fetishfaerie-stock
New ink! It translates to:
I know my heart, I have gained power over my heart. I have gained power over my two hands, I have gained power over my feet. I have gained the power to do what pleaseth my Ka.

(Ka = soul)

Thank you! I couldn't have translated it myself... It's straight from the Egyptian Book of the Dead (The Papyrus of Ani), as transliterated and translated by E.A. Wallis Budge. :)

The necklace was one of my Grandmother's. She had some truly amazing jewelry in her collection. <3

I can't begin to tell you how much it pleases me to see real accurate ancient Egyptian used. I immediately recognised the text. I love that you had it written very simply. It looks so beautiful! And it looks so perfectly harmonious with your body. Simply love it.
