Hannya Playing Cards

Hannya Playing Cards features the traditional Japanese Hannya mask, portraying the souls of women who have become demons due to obsession or jealousy -- now immortalized through tattoos. 

As a follow-up to the Mandala Playing Cards, Damien O'Brien has used his own Hannya tattoo as inspiration for the Hannya Playing Cards. 

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

When looking straight ahead, the mask appears frightening and angry; when tilted slightly down, the face of the demon appears to be sorrowful, as though crying. In much the same way, the gold foil mask on the Hannya Playing Cards tuck case emerges from the black mat darkness and peers into your soul. 

Two sharp bull-like horns, metallic eyes, and leering mouth are emblazened 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 including Jeremy Griffith, Daniel Madison,  and Damien, himself, on the custom drawn court cards.

GREAT deck

Great deck for a great price.
Seriously - the tuck case is fantastic; subtle and classy, very bad ass. The feel of the deck itself is incredible - better than air-cushioned. The court cards are fantastic.

The only downside - with such personalised court cards (they’re clearly patterned off actual people, I believe artists at a tattoo parlour) is that it’s not a deck you’d play every single day. It’s a collector deck no doubt, but it’s not - like - an heirloom collector deck. I hope that makes sense.

I'm a fan!

The back design is minimal but beautifully done. The cards feel like butter & will last. The most realistic court cards I've ever seen.

Nice Cards

Awesome deck. Handles great, looks great. I get the thought process behind making the face cards magicians, but it could have maybe been more subtle or just dropped that idea. Other than that perfect.


This was my first Cartamundi deck. A bit fatter than most decks but the cards feel AMAZING. This entire deck contains like, idk 5 colors, which I love. Grey, black, red, white, and brown/gold on the joker's and Ace of spades. The back design is elegant, the tuck case intriguing, and the courts are custom. One con about it, no double backer. If this deck had a double backer, I think it'd be my favorite card of all my decks.

This is just a simple, eloquent, beautiful deck of cards. If the royalty hadn't been based on real magicians and card people it could quite easily be the most perfect timeless deck of cards ever created.
