The image of dreamcatchers captured the imagination of tattoo artists for several generations. A dreamcatcher tattoo represents a powerful symbol of protection by acting as an amulet or a talisman against evil and misfortune.
A dreamcatcher is a handmade object consisting from a small hoop that contains a horsehair mesh, or a similar construction of string or yarn, decorated with feathers and beads.
The fascinating objects were originally made by American Indians and were considered as having the property to catch the bad dreams or nightmares giving to their owner good dreams. Native Americans believe that at night, the air is full of positive and negative dreams. Hanged above or near the bed the dreamcatcher will catch the good dreams and will cast out the bad ones.
Dreamcatcher tattoos are perfect tattoo designs, not only because they look nice on the skin, but they also help their owner to be saved from bad dreams while sleeping.
