Is it truth that having tattoos in number pair gives bad luck?

I hear a lot of people saying it is true.. I have two tattoos and my luck isn't so bad. What do you think? Should I do a third tattoo just to prevent bad luck?

I have never heard that before. But I guess it depends on if your are superstitious or not. But I have 2 as well and have awesome luck, my sister has 5 and has really bad luck but she kinda always has even before all of her tattoos.

People ask that at the shop and I have to giggle. If you think about it, almost every number has a stigma to it. If you have two, that's an even number. Get three and that's bad luck because bad things happen in three's. Get four and you are back to the even number thing again. Get five and that's considered evil because of the number of points on a star ... you could go on all night with the list. My two cents ... if you feel like getting another one then go for it, otherwise be happy with two.

Like the people posting above me, I have not heard of this particular superstition before. I think that if you would like another tattoo, go for it! If you really don't want another one, you shouldn't feel pressured to get one just because you think that having two might bring you bad luck somehow. ^_^ By the way, I love the picture that you posted of that dragon tattoo! ^_^

Armilar sphere Portugal - Armilar sphere Portugal
I want to do another one, and I will do it. This "bad luck superstition" is just an excuse! lol I have 2 dragons in my body. The next tattoo I think it will be a armilar sphere. Portugal flag has it and I want to do a tattoo about the country I was born.

I don't believe it. To me it's just a way they found to make people do more tattoos. But if you believe in this you better make the third tattoo.

No I don't think so. Luck is luck no matter what. My husband is always lucky and he never have a tattoo. I am always not that lucky in money and I don't have a tattoo.

Nah, I think you shouldn't mind those supertitious sayings and just have as many tattoos as you wish to have, man. If anything, those "bad luck" things that might happen to someone with a pair of tattoos is just pure coincidence.

I had a lot of bad luck after I got my first tattoo. After my second tattoo my luck seemed to improve a little bit. If anything, that third tattoo put me back into the bad luck area. I don't think that you need to have a set number of tattoos to have good luck. Tattoos are permanent, you should base your decision to get one on superstitions.

I have never heard that saying and I wouldn't put much stock in it . That is obviousley an old wise tail and nothing more . I have a tattoo and would like to go back and get a second one . My daughter has two and she got them both the same day and she does not suffer from bad luck .

I know enough about tattoos and never her of such myth. It's not really true, no. Do you know how many people in world have only two tattoos and don't have any bad luck. Maybe some do have bad luck, but because they have a pair of tattoos.

nope, if what you say so is right i guess a lot of people will go and add their tattos, and more and more tatto shop earn moeny from that. I don't think this is correct. If you really want a good luck maybe you can go to thailand and try their religion tatoo then.
