Hand of Fatima Tattoo Meaning

hand-of-fatima-tattoo

Also known as the Hamsa or Hamesh Hand, Hand of God and the Hand of Miriam, the Hand of Fatima is a protective amulet for Jews and Muslims.

The symbol – a hand with an eye on the palm – derived its name from the Prophet Muhammad’s daughter, and is largely worn as a protective talisman against the ‘evil eye’.

Rightfully, the symbol should be drawn with the fingers pointing downwards, whereas the Jewish version of the symbol sometimes has the fingers pointing upwards.
