The Red String of Fate Tattoo Ideas


What is the red string of fate tattoo?
Two lovers get this tattoo on their pinky fingers, signifying that the red string of their bond may stretch or tangle, but it can never break. The story behind it traces back to ancient Chinese folklore.

According to Wikipedia: “The gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.”

When you see someone with a red string tattooed (or simply worn) around their wrist, don’t jump to any conclusions regarding the intention of the string. In Jewish culture, for example, tying a red string around the left wrist is said to protect one against the evil eye.
