Hannya Playing Cards


The Hannya playing cards feature the traditional Japanese Hannya mask, representing the souls of women turned demons due to obsession or jealousy - now immortalized by tattoos.

Following the Mandala Playing Cards, Damien O'Brien used his own Hannya tattoo as inspiration for the Hannya Playing Cards.

Demonic and dangerous, but also sad and tormented, the Hannya mask pays homage to the complexity of human emotions.

Looking straight ahead, the mask looks fearsome and angry; if you tilt it slightly downwards, the demons face appears sad, as if it were crying. Similarly, the gold foil mask on the Hannya playing card case emerges from the darkness of the black mat and peers into your soul.

Two sharp, bull-like horns, metallic eyes, and a lustful mouth are embellished with gold foil on each card back. The tools of the trade are highlighted on the jokers.


The custom drawn court cards pay homage to the creative mischief of magicians like Jeremy Griffith, Daniel Madison and Damien himself in the custom drawn court cards.
