Butterfly Tattoo Designs

Among women, who by all accounts are now as equally desirable of a tattoo as men, the butterfly tattoo has become one of the most frequently requested, popular and sought after tattoo designs. Given the butterfly’s beauty and the amazing array of colors that butterflies possess, this fact should be of no surprise to anyone. There are virtually hundreds of species of butterflies. As a tattoo design, the butterfly tattoo is very feminine looking and can be placed virtually anywhere on the body. Some of the top choices of butterfly tattoo placement are the ankle, shoulder blade, wrist, lower abdomen and lower back. Inked properly, these tattoo designs are very beautiful and sexy.

Other than the sheer beauty of this design, there are other more significant meanings associated with the butterfly tattoo design.  In many cultures the butterfly is highly symbolic.  For example, in Japanese culture, one butterfly symbolizes the ascension into young womanhood, while two butterflies symbolizes marital bliss.  For many, as the butterfly is transformed from the life of a caterpillar, many consider the butterfly tattoo to mean a transformation or rebirth of life.  This can be especially poignant as a symbol of a major change in a person’s life and with it the feeling of a new beginning.

Here are opinions from WikiAnswer Contributors:

  • The butterfly is a symbol of transformation or change, love and joy.
  • I got a butterfly tattoo after i had a bad experience in life and i gave myself a better life and the reason why i got one is because it made me feel really free without any more hurting in my life..
  • I got a butterfly tattoo after a personal experience in my life. Rarely do I share what my tattoos mean, after reading that last comment, I figured go ahead. To me, it represents beauty, changes, taking flight, simplicity and peace. At first, it’s an ugly caterpillar and no one will give it a second look, but with time and dedication, it becomes something marvelous to the human eye. It’s a natural wonder. So, with my life, after getting through some tough times, a butterfly just reminded me of myself actually. I had to take time and appreciate what I had and what I hope to be in the future.
  • I just got my butterfly tattoo a week ago and for me it means a new life, a new beginning if you will. I think that after years of trying to please everyone else by being someone I'm not my butterfly was my gift to me for being me. It was spontaneous and exhilarating, it is beautiful and calm it is colorful and vibrant...everything I want to continue to be! ~ Happy.
  • In paintings, particularly Dutch Renaissance (sp?) butterflies stand for fleeting love (Jacques Louis David, Cupid and Psyche).
  • I got my butterfly tattoo 3 weeks ago. When I first got it I just thought that it would be fun to have but now that I think about it, it represents a new life for me. I just started college last fall and I am changing in ways that I would never of even think of. So mine it means changes and enjoying life to its fullest.
  • It could represent different things for different people. Here are some examples of Butterfly symbolism: Change, Joy and/or Color. The butterfly can also represent transition and freedom as well as peace. The native Americans believe that if you tell a secret to a butterfly it is ever safe in there keeping, given that a butterfly cannot speak. Some people use a butterfly to symbolize someone close that has passed away, I believe that some European cultures believe that spirits or souls are trapped in white butterflies. Others just like the look of butterfly and the tat may not represent anything significant to them.
  • A purple butterfly symbolizes the fight against Lupus, a type of cancer . . . my mother has it.
  • Traditionally butterflies are pretty and so many people want them as mere decoration. In a deeper sense butterflies represent rebirth or transformation from the caterpillar to the beautiful butterfly.
