Another reason some people choose to get angel tattoos is as a remembrance to someone. A loved one may have passed away and an angel tattoo is prettier and more graceful than a tombstone tattoo or an R.I.P. symbol. The angel is a beautiful and almost always graceful figure thus women are very attracted to these types of tattoos.

Butterfly Symbolism

  • Represents the fragility of life
  • Transformation or change as well as love and joy
  • Simplicity
  • Peace
  • A new life
  • A new beginning
  • Serves as a reminder to make changes when the opportunities arise
  • The butterfly flight appears as though its dancing, a reminder not to take things so seriously

At first a butterfly is an ugly caterpillar and nobody even thinks to give it a second look. With time and dedication it transforms into something breathtaking. The metamorphosis process makes the butterfly a powerful symbol for transformation. Throughout our life we will be faced with change and transformation. A butterfly tattoo is an excellent way to remember that change, the dedication it took, and serves as a constant reminder to make the necessary changes when the opportunities present themselves.

Cute Butterfly Tattoos
  • My grandma died and before she was buried she was put into her coffin in a closed depressing room that didn’t have windows or ventilation. A dismal electric bulb was the only thing that lighted her while her loved ones said goodbye. When they arrived into the room they found a butterfly flying around with its vivid colored wings and it has remained a mystery of how it arrived there. This incident caused me to get a butterfly tattoo. For me my tattoo symbolizes the spirit, life and death with its three stages of mankind, and reincarnation. Finally, it also symbolizes the short and intense life and the magic dust on a butterfly’s wing is our freedom that enables our flight.
