Rihanna Falcon Tattoo


I love this tattoo for those of us who appreciate tattoo's I think this
looks really good. I also loved where she chose to put it. The tattoo means ``Falcon: a light 
that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep. This came straight from her Tweet

Here is some info on the use of the falcon in Ancient Egyptian art from

“The sacred bird of the falcon-headed solar god Horus, it was also regarded as his Ba. 
The falcon was a bird that had protective powers, and was frequently linked with 
royalty, where it was depicted as hovering over the head of the pharaoh, with 
outstretched wings. The falcon was also sacred to Montu, god of war, and Sokar, 
god of the Memphite necropolis.The bird of prey was sometimes associated with 
Hathor, ‘The House of Horus’. The son of Horus, Qebehsenuef who guarded the 
canopic jar of the intestines, was a falcon-headed god. The human headed 
ba-bird was sometimes given the body of a falcon.”

Let me know your thoughts!!
