Queen of spades tattoo meaning explored

Away from its meaning in the world of cards, one particular queen of spades tattoo design is said to have a more NSFW meaning.

The trending design in question does not feature the imagery of the queen, which is featured in a deck of cards, but instead is a simple spade symbol with a ‘Q’ at its centre.

According to Urban Dictionary, if an individual has a spades symbol tattoo with a ‘Q’ in the middle, it is said to reflect the individual’s specific preference when it comes to partners in the bedroom.

Another user on Quora explains that its meaning is not just related to tattoos, as clothing and jewellery featuring a spade with a ‘Q’ at its centre can also signify the same as having it inked.

Designs referencing the card could include the queen herself, as well as her crown incorporating the spades symbol.

Blogsite, Ink Art By Kate explains that a tattoo depicting the image of the queen of spades could represent strength, power and success.
