The hand is a reference to the mythology behind what pirates did to thieves, cutting there hand off an using it for luck. On the center of the hand is an ouroboros symbol with a rat fink like eye shooting out of it and a pentagram. Each finger is on fire, the hand has been severed at the wrist. The rings on each finger symbolize my Americana Thoth pop tarot aces. This is reimagined from the Thoth tarot deck, with the symbiology referencing Americana culture.
