Tattoos designed with gambling related images have been popular for many decades. This is not really surprising considering how gambling has been around for centuries, how gambling relates to superstition, and how gambling images happen to translate into very attractive tattoo designs.

Gambling is also more widespread than ever. We have easier access to gambling. Now we have off-track betting, legalized gambling in certain cities (like Las Vegas and Atlantic City), floating casinos (cruise ships) and, of course, online gambling with sites like Party Casino.

Gambling is associated with luck which is associated with superstition. Superstition and good luck symbols are both popular categories of tattoo flash. People want and believe in good luck. They hope their life is successful and happy and there’s no harm in wearing a visual symbol to reinforce that positive attitude. It’s like wearing a permanent lucky clover.

Playing cards, dice, roulette wheels, and gambling chips all make for an appealing tattoo. The imagery is attractive to the eye and who doesn’t hope that good luck will shine on them?
