    In palmistry, the correspondences would be something like

    middle finger rules practicality, so disks

    Ring finger rules self worth (and its the ring finger for wedding bands), so cups

    Pinky rules communication, which i usually associate wands

    Pointer directs Will, so swords

    I don’t know about the placement, but remember that finger tattoos will get blurry very quickly! If the design is too complicated, it might end up unrecognizable. Really cool idea, though!

    You can change which drawing goes where until you find what vibes.

    Well, in palmistry, the index finger is where the mound of Jupiter is, the middle is Saturn, ring is Apollo, and the pinky Mercury. Jupiter indicates your ambition, leadership, and honor. Saturn has to do with introspection and inner truth. Apollo deals with your confidence, talent, and enthusiasm. Mercury is wisdom and the ability to think and be quick-witted.

    Or something along those lines.

    I’m not a palm reader (I had to look all that up lol), but that what your tattoo idea made me think of. You could probably make some correlations between them.

    I’m not sure which should go where because my suggestion would be based off of the tradition you follow, but do make sure you want them facing you as all others will see them as upside down. It’s just some people get tattoos a certain direction on their arm and forget how it looks from an outside perspective. Not to say you hadn’t thought about it, but just in case.

    Personally I would put sword on the middle, and cups on the ring finger, wands on the pointer and keep pentacles on the little finger

    Edited: can’t seem to count fingers properly

    The thumb could also be the element of spirit or akash, represented by the trumps. A cross or something similar is a good representation of it.

    The index finger is the mother finger, middle for the father, ring finger for the son and pinkie for the daughter. Not sure how to match those with the suits, but I feel swords and wands would be masculine and cups and pentacles feminine. Hope helpful

    I have always thought of it as

    middle- wands fire (the *willful* finger)

    Ring- cups water(finger of love)

    Index- pentacles earth (finger that identifies and directs the physical world)

    Pinky- swords air (finger of honesty)

    Thumb- Major arcana (the forces that oppose us and by doing so strengthen us)

    If you’re gonna do this make sure to go the stick and poke route. I’ve heard they are better for finger tattoos.

    You want those specific symbols, right? Then by all means use them . It shouldn’t matter if there is finger to suite correlation which finger. It depends on how you got that idea, right?

    If it came like an instant flash of inspiration in that order this could be the higher powers directing.

    Dreams are trickerier, if you dreamed and woke up with clear vision that stuck with you, it could be directed. If you woke up with fragments that you filled in then do as you wish.

    Personally I’d take the question to The Deck. Since you have specific “technical” questions you can come up with yes/no rules where you have set yo your next question.

    I just wanted to throw out there a few ideas.

    Pinky is Mercury, ring is Apollo, middle is Saturn and index is jupiter if that helps you decide the order you want! I feel like I would do air, fire, earth, water respectively taking traditional rulerships of the planets and their elemental associations into account

    ***Hand tattoos are a really bad idea unless you already have a LOT of other tattoos.***

    As for placement might i suggest the following wordplay:

    Pinkie should be Cups because you extend your littlest finger when drinking tea.

    Ring should be Pentacles/Coins because of the saying “Not for Love or Money” (or was it love OF money…”

    Middle finger should be Sword because it’s the FIGHTING finger when you flip people off they will see a great big middle finger and a tiny sword.

    Index should be Staves/Rods/Wands because it’s for pointing and guiding.
