hell hath no fury…

…like a woman scorned.

meet the hanya mask, a very old + traditional symbol in japanese tattooing culture.

[…representing a jealous female demon. It is used to represent the malice or sublime emotions of human beings. It possesses two sharp bull-like horns, glaring eyes, and a leering mouth split from ear to ear.]

[…said to be dangerous and demonic, but also sorrowful and tormented displaying the complexity of human emotions.]

[These tattoos are believed to ward off evil spirits, and bring good luck to the person sporting them.]
