Thinking seriously to tattoo that over my skin...

The Justice is the card number VIII I think... and the force the card number XI
Amazing Work :)

It is a pair that is interchanged in certain decks. Sometimes it is this way, sometimes the other way, depending on the progression the artist/author wish for the deck.

Oh, I informed.

In the cards that follow the Rider-Waite influence (especially in English-speaking countries) used the number XI for Justice, while in the Mediterranean, most followers of the Tarot of Marseilles, the number VIII will prevail. Both are considered valid.

Sorry about my ignorance

i like the allusion to the egyption view of justice at death. you can enter heaven if your heart weighs less than a feather.

Mmm, justice was from the beginning pictured as a child with a unicorn´s horn by it´s side, but I think this one says it better.

Amazing! I love the reference to Maat (unless that's not the feather weighed against the soul?) goddess of justice. I will look for this deck to be published!

Yes, you have the correct.
