I love veve symbols. Vodou is among the most beautiful of religious practices for combining gorgeous sigil work that compares to (and in my opinion, surpasses) the geometric Hebrew designs, while at the same time entirely retaining its passionate and folk-religion nature.

Some people have had the vévés of one lwa or another tattooed on their bodies so that they may receive that spirit’s protection. I would think long and hard before doing this. A tattoo is permanent, of course—and you may not be ready to handle the sheer influx of energy that may arise from having a spirit’s vévé on your skin. If you sincerely feel the need to do this—if you have been asked to do so in a dream, for example, or if you were advised to do so after a reading—then you can use the appropriate vévé or image and find a competent tattoo artist. (If you can find one who is also a Vodouisant, you will be particularly blessed; but outside of New Orleans, that may be difficult to impossible to do.) Once your tattoo is healed, you may want to feed it occasionally with things connected to the spirit. Sprinkling a little perfume on Freda’s image, or wetting Damballah’s vévé with orgeat syrup, will serve to empower the tattoo and ensure your continued success and protection.
I find Voudon so fascinating. This is the symbol for Erzulie, goddess of love.
