Imagine a rainbow cloud of butterflies in the blue sky. Now imagine the joy of having small butterflies right on your skin as a tattoo. Full of dreams, bright with colors, and flying in the land of fantasy, Small Butterfly Tattoos truly send out the message, ‘Small is beautiful’.
Whether it is the wings, the shape of the body or the delicate patterns, every bit of a small butterfly tattoo makes for a unique piece of body art.
There is something about a butterfly that is very feminine and delicate, full of the magic and mystery of love, and this is what makes butterfly tattoos look great on women. Whether it is on her bare back, on her stomach area, or on a pretty arm or a foot, butterfly tattoos add a different dimension to a woman’s beauty. Sometimes you may see designs with a single butterfly with the four wings spread out for flight. You can also see designs that show a dancing row of butterflies trailing down the back, or a colorful host of butterflies making a beautiful splash on the leg. Often butterfly designs combine with vine and stars to make amazing tattoo patterns. Stripped of all color tattoos showing a small butterfly in black ink are supremely artistic. You can see the delicate wing shape of the butterfly along with the folds that make it a unique and beautiful creature, and you realize why it is such a popular tattoo design idea. Butterflies also celebrate flying, growing, and inner beauty, so here’s a look at creations by tattoo artists featuring these elegant and powerfully magical creatures.
