Tree of Life Sigil. The Tree of Life is one of the most familiar of the Sacred Geometric Symbols. The structure of the Tree of Life is connected to the sacred teachings of the Jewish Kabbalah but can be seen in other traditions as well, such as the ancien
Vegvisir ("the viking compass"). It is said that if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known. It is encircled by protection runes. This would be a cool tattoo.
