Is This Jourdan Dunn’s Tattoo?

  • Pin it

Michael Kors catwalk was perfect, the collection in itself was charming, there was just one flaw to it! (yes, I’m aware how that sounds after I declares my love for both the clothes and the shoes!)

So, the flaw: it was a white catwalk. With just one exception: Jourdan Dunn! She’s lovely, alright, but she doesn’t make up for the lack of black or Asian models. Among the beauty shots from the show’s backstage, was this rather impressive tattoo on Jourdan Dunn’s back (it is Jourdan, isn’t it?). What does it stand for, anyone has any ideas?

It is of the Goddess Isis.
She is a protective goddess, and the holder of magic. She used powerful spells to help people.
She was also a mother figure akin to Ancient Egyptians as Mother Mary is to Catholics. She is the wife of Osiris and the mother of Horus.
She is one of the most powerful gods in the Ancient Egyptian pantheon.
I hope that helps. : )

Yes, it helps! :* You’re wonderful! :*

So it’s a protective tattoo? I’m always fascinated as to why people choose to draw on themselves and what the drawing stands for! It’s fascinating, like a choice for life, somewhat, since it’s so difficult to fully and completely erase from the skin, once the tattoo is installed.

It is not Isis tattoo, is Ma’at. Is the Egyptian goddess from justice. Is frequently confused with Isis because both have wings. The difference is on her head. Isis has the eye of Ra (circle between horns) or a throne (looks like a chair). Ma’at have a feather.
I wish Jourdan knows the difference!!!

For everyones’ edification if they wish here is a link to a web page that describes the Ancient Egyptian Goddesses.
(my personal favourites from this pantheon were always Bastet and Sekhmet.)
