Illuminati Tattoo FAQs 

What does an Illuminati tattoo symbolize? 

The Illuminati is a term used to describe a number of secret societies that arose in Bavaria in the late 18th century that used a variety of images and symbolism (both ancient and fabricated) to create the rites and rituals that defined their existence. Created by a number of Bavarian intellectuals and politicians, the Illuminati’s mission was to oppose the influence of superstition and religion in the realm of public life and state power. According to their statutes, The order of the day is to put an end to the machinations of the purveyors of injustice, to control them without dominating them.” 

Interestingly enough, the progenitors of the Illuminati borrowed most of their symbols and imagery from an older, established secret society known as the Freemasons. The most prominent symbols associated with the Illuminati—the square and double compass and the Eye of Providence—are both used extensively in Masonic traditions.  

The Eye of Providence was originally a Christian image that was adopted by the Masons and represents the way that all deeds and actions of man are observed by God—known as The Great Architect of the Universe within the orderAccording to Duncan’s Masonic Monitor of 1866, the square and compasses are explained thusly “The square, to square our actions; The compasses, to circumscribe and keep us within bounds with all mankind”. 

While this is the self-described symbolism behind these images, in modern times the conspiracies surrounding the Illuminati and Free Masons as being society’s elite engineers has changed the meanings a bit. The Eye of Providence, pictured above the unfinished pyramid on the Great Seal of the United States, is considered a hidden-in-plain-sight clue as to the true and nefarious nature of the Illuminati’s role in shaping society for their own benefit.  

Whether these tattoos are used as a nod to the New World order or are a commemoration to the fraternal orders from which the Illuminati arose is beyond the point. The powerful imagery and deep symbolism make these images an excellent choice for tattoo designs.
