The Four Crown Princes of Hell are Satan, Belial, Lucifer, and Leviathan. Each one represents a cardinal point on the pentacle. These four demons are often considered the most dangerous and deadly evil. Each one has their personality, traits, and physical description. The Four Crown Princes of Hell could be turned into beautiful demon tattoo designs.
Demon tattoo design of the Four Crown Princes of Hell: Satan. Many claim that Satan is not an actual being, but more the “darkness” within us that we all carry. However, that doesn’t make for a fun demon tattoo design. So, let’s look at Satan as a physical being:
1) Satan is often depicted as a muscular red man. He always has horns, representing the goat. He might have black claws, and sharp teeth. No matter what, Satan always looks menacing.
2) Satan sits at the North.
3) Satan represents fire.
4) Satan was the evil that tempted Eve. He spoke through the serpent to persuade her to eat the fruit of knowledge. Then he spoke through Eve to tempt Adam.
5) Satan is sometimes matched with the dark raven.
6) It was also Satan who was sent, by God, to test Job.
The Satan demon tattoo design: Create a Satan demon tattoo design by using the stereotypical Satan. Your Satan should be strong. He does not need to be red in color, but you should surround him in flames. Place the horns on his head so that everyone recognizes him. Do not just leave your Satan demon tattoo design like this. Place a raven in the tattoo. It could be flying just beside Satan. You could place a serpent around Satan’s shoulders, with its head pointing toward a young woman. This beautiful young woman would be Eve. This entire tattoo could just be of Satan and Eve’s shoulders and head. Make sure Satan has a “devilish” look on his face. Eve could be blonde, with white around her shoulders. This would represent her purity, and naïveté, that Satan is about to take away.
Demon tattoo design idea of the Four Princes of Hell: Belial. Belial is the leader of the Sons of Darkness, making him a pretty bad guy. Here are some descriptions and information about Belial to be used as a demon tattoo design:
1) Belial means “being without a master”. Which means he’s the head honcho and answers to no one.
2) Belial sits at the South.
3) Belial is the master of Earth.
4) Belial controls many legions of armies.
5) Belial is said to have been an angel who was cast out by God. He fell immediately after Lucifer.
6) Belial is depicted as a beautiful angel that rides a fiery chariot. Sometimes he is depicted as two angels in the chariot, although some believe that the second angel is really Lucifer.
The Belial demon tattoo design: Belial is the master of the element of Earth, so placing him in a fiery chariot makes him look more like Satan. Belial should be a in a chariot, but you should have boulders, stones, and the earth surrounding the wheels of the chariot. You could even make the chariot out of rock. Belial himself should be beautiful. He is an angel, so give him wings. By giving him dark wings you help stress the point that he is a fallen angel and not a good guy. Since Belial leads an army you could put him in armor, and give him a mighty weapon. Make sure Belial looks evil and menacing, you don’t want people confusing him with the good guy Michael.
-You could also forget the armor and place Belial in broken chains and cuffs. This would represent that he is a slave to no one, or that he is “without a master”. That he no longer answers to God.
-You can make Belial two angels in one chariot. You could connect them by giving them each one wing on opposite shoulder blades. Again, give them the broken chains.
Demon tattoo design of the Four Princes of Hell: Lucifer. Ah, Lucifer. Besides Satan, Lucifer is the most famous example of evil the world knows. Despite only being mentioned by name in the Bible once, he has become the embodiment of evil and sin. What does Lucifer look like? He has many faces according to legends:
1) Lucifer is the “bringer of light”. He is also called the Morning Star. This gives an image of the sun.
2) Lucifer sits in the East. As the sun rises in the East every morning.
3) Lucifer was an angel who sang God’s praises. He was covered in musical instruments for this purpose.
4) Lucifer was one of the Seraphim. They were often depicted as fiery, flying serpents.
5) Other versions of Lucifer, such as the Egyptian God, Sata, and the Babylonian God, Zu, were gods of Lightning.
6) The witches of Moira described Lucifer as having gray skin and blue arms. He wore a culotte, a type of knee-length pants that were divided and baggy to resemble a skirt. He has a child’s face that turns frightening when angered.
7) Lucifer represents Air.
The Lucifer demon tattoo design: With so many descriptions, you have many choices for your Lucifer tattoo design. Here is a list of some ideas:
-A beautiful angel, his arms raised in the air above his head. Behind him, the sun is rising, right between his arms. It might look as if Lucifer is holding the sun. Your Lucifer could be shirtless, showing off those muscles. Give him dark wings, or light wings.
-Instead of the sun, Lucifer may be giving off light in the form of lightning. You could have your sexy angel, but have lightning bolts shooting from his fingers and the tips of his wings.
-Dress your Lucifer in nothing but a culotte. If that seems weird, put him in board shorts. Red ones. You can also give him those blue arms and gray skin.
-Lucifer was made to sing God’s praises. When he fell, he no longer had that role. Your Lucifer could be surrounded with broken musical instruments.
Demon tattoo design of the Princes of Hell: Leviathan. Leviathan is more often depicted as a monster than a human-like being. Lucky for you, this makes for a more interesting demon tattoo design idea.
1) Leviathan represents the water and oceans.
2) Leviathan sits to the West.
3) Leviathan is called the “serpent of the sea”.
4) Leviathan also represents sex, love, and desire.
5) In the Book of Enoch, Leviathan is described as a female who lives in the ocean.
6) The Book of Job describes Leviathan as having seven heads, and strong scales that can’t be penetrated. He breathes fire from his mouth, and smoke from his nose.
7) Leviathan is also called the “dragon of the sea”.
The Leviathan demon tattoo design: You can have fun with this great beast, or beautiful temptress. Here are your two options for the Leviathan demon tattoo design:
-A beautiful woman who is a seductress. You can still make her serpent-like. Place scales on parts of her body, or give her a forked tongue. Make sure she is voluptuous and very tempting to the eye. To show that she is a part of the ocean, you can have her surrounded by fish, whales, dolphins, whatever.
-The great sea-dragon Leviathan. Going by the descriptions presented above, you’d probably end up with a creature looking a lot like the Greek creature the Hydra, but it certainly fits. Place Leviathan in the water, or surrounded by water, and you have the perfect monster.
Putting them all together. You could choose only one of the Four Princes of Hell and make it a tattoo. Or, you could use all four and make one amazing full back tattoo. Place each tattoo of each of the Four Princes of Hell on their respective points on your back. Satan sits to the North, so he’d be between your shoulder blades. Belial sits to the South, so he’d be at the small of your back. Lucifer to the East, and Leviathan to the West.
-Connect all four as a pentacle.
-Connect all four by having one hand(or claw, or wing) pointing toward the middle of your back. All four might just slightly touch.
