Tattoos of the Baphomet

During the 19th century, the Baphomet or "The Sabbatic Goat", was a deity drawn up by author Eliphas Levi as a symbol of the absolute. While Levi intended the Baphomet to represent both good and evil, the figure went on to represent the devil in classic tarot card design and later became the official symbol of the Church of Satan. The Baphomet made recent headlines in 2015, when an 8 1/2 foot statue was commissioned by The Satanic Temple in Detroit, Mich. And with that, here are an unlucky 13 Baphomet tattoos.
