Lucky Dice Tattoo Ideas

I'm a big fan of all things tattoo and want to share my passion for the world of tattoo art.

When I started looking for inspiration for dice-related tattoos, I was amazed to find such a large number of creative design ideas. The predominant theme was (unsurprisingly) luck, and the most popular image was flaming dice or dice with fire. This seems to refer to having a hot streak when throwing the dice.

It was a lot of fun seeing how artists design and include elements of luck with their dice tattoos. It points to the desire of some who are always looking for some luck to improve their lives, and these symbols have been representing that possibility for a long time. As for complementary images, there were other elements of luck and chance, such as Irish shamrocks and horseshoes.

Join me on a photographic tour of these creative tattoos!

Note: Some people will put tattoos on certain parts of the body based upon a particular theme, but that wasn't the case with dice. That's to say there is no one place to ink dice on the body.

What better way to start off looking at dice tattoos than that place of chance: Las Vegas. Here you have a combination of flaming dice and the Vegas logo, showing a very cool image.

The tattoo below has a little bit of everything represented in games of chance. There's the eight ball from pool, cards, and of course dice.

Although I'm always concerned when I see a neck tattoo, as it can definitely affect one's life because of the placement, this is a nice tattoo design that looks great.

This neck tattoo is a little better as far as the ability to hide it, as it could be covered with a high-neck shirt. The image itself is interesting in that it includes the flaming dice, but this time in the darker colors and not the reddish hue usually included. I like the look.

Flaming Dice With Bones

This fun tattoo is part of the flaming dice theme. As far as the bones in the background, for those of you unfamiliar with dice, "bones" is another name for dice.

Although very simple, this dice tattoo is among my favorites. I really like how the dice are made to look like they're in the middle of a roll. Great job.

Flaming Dice

More Flaming Dice

As mentioned above, flaming dice is by far the most popular among dice tattoos, and that's because all of those using dice to gamble love to feel like they're going to hit a hot streak and win a lot of throws in a row.

I like that the dice appear to be so hot that they are actually melting.

Lucky 7 With Dice

Here's a great tattoo, similar to the one above in terms of the melting dice, but the inclusion of the word "Lucky" and the number "7" adds a lot to it. Nice tattoo.

I continually am amazed at the quality and uniqueness of tattoo artists, as revealed with the card, dice, and tribal effects below. Fascinating and interesting image.

Dice and Dagger Tattoo

Love the colors of this dice-and-dagger tattoo. Especially effective to me is the way you can see the dagger piercing the dice because of the transparency.

Dice and Shamrock Tattoo

It's always cool to see whimsical tattoos among those who are serious about their designs. And the one below is nice in its simplicity, as well as the way the shamrock, stars, and dice combine to give the appearance of riding a streak of luck.

Horseshoe and Dice Tattoo

Horseshoe and Dice

Horseshoes are another thing that people associate with luck, so it was inevitable, like the shamrock, that it would be included with dice in a design. Of course, you have a little of everything lucky in this one, as there are also shamrocks at the bottom of the image if you look closely.

Dice, Cards, Skull Tattoo

Dice, Cards and Skull

The cards, dice and skull aren't that unique in tattoo design, but what is compelling is the use of the skull as the face of the card. Using the star as a centerpiece to build the design around was another interesting idea.

Joker Sitting on Dice Tattoo

The joker sitting on the dice with the deck of cards behind her is fantastic and creative. This is pointing to the fact that the joker, in a number of games, is used as a piece of luck, and can change things around for the player. Very cool.
