Dagger and heart tattoo?
Asked in Tattoos and Body Art, Eagles
What does a dagger through a heart tattoo symbolize?
Originally the symbol of Erzulie Dantor, a spirit of cruel vengeance and jealousy. In just the opposite sense, the heart pierced with the dagger has been taken as a variation of the Sacred Heart tattoo by some Christians. More often than not the imagery is literal, the heart is the centre of emotion and love that is in pain, damaged or wounded.
