Heart tattoos have always been popular, and we usually associate them with the old school, Sailor Jerry type of tattooing.
A couple, wanting to express undying love for one another, get matching heart tattoos with each other’s names written on a sort of banner. The combination of heart tattoos and names started in the beginning of the 20th century when sailors wore red hearts with the word Mom in the center. In Ancient Egypt myths, the heart was weighed against the feather of Ma'at (the ancient Egyptian goddess of truth).
Hearts and flowers are an obvious combination, both being a symbol of love (especially the rose). Pete Doherty: has a heart with the letter K on the inside (for Kate Moss) on his left shoulder.
Goldie Hawn: actress with a small blue heart tattoo on her ankle, done in Tahiti for her 60th birthday.
Ville Valo: has a heartagram (combination of a heart and a pentagram) on his neck and belly and a heart tattoo on his right wrist. Butterfly tattoos are a good choice for a first tattoo because the design doesn't need to be big to be striking.
Delicate beauty: a butterfly is small and very delicate, but also very colorful and full of beautiful details.
In Japan they believe that if a butterfly flies into your guestroom, the person you love the most will come to you soon.


In some cultures it means good luck when a butterfly lands on you (imagine the luck you'll be having when you have one on you permanently). For the ancient Aztecs, butterflies were the souls of deceased warriors or women who died while giving birth. Butterfly tattoos combine well with tribal elements, especially on the lower back because of the symmetrical nature of a butterfly.
Lower back butterfly tattoos are usually larger, more stylized butterfly images that stretch across the lower back, one of the most popular places to get a tattoo nowadays (but also known as a tramp stamp). To sum it up: butterfly tattoos are among the most versatile tattoo images, which helps explain their popularity with women. Christians believe it is the seat of emotions (more particularly love) and Islam sees the heart as the spiritual centre. It doesn't really look like the real thing, more like a cow's heart (historically, people saw a lot more cow hearts than human hearts). This Christian symbol stands for the heart of Jesus Christ and the divine love for humanity.
Butterfly tattoos are a feminine kind of tattoo and come in a great variety of shapes and sizes: colorful or black, stylized or real (like a monarch butterfly tattoo). Butterflies have always been an inspiration for visual arts, such as the hieroglyphics of Ancient Egypt a couple of thousand years ago. A small butterfly tattoo (life sized or smaller) on an ankle or shoulder can be a pretty and graceful accent to your natural beauty.


Having a tattoo of a butterfly symbolizes a new life, a new beginning after having gone through some rough times. On the other hand, it is not so delicate like most people think: contrary to the widespread belief, you can't kill a butterfly by touching its wings. Tribal butterfly tattoos are often black, or a combination of a colored butterfly with black tribal swirls. The butterfly image is very symmetrical, so the middle can easily be lined up with the spine, the wings extending on either side. They are inherently feminine, but not necessarily girly, and you can make either a bold or subtle statement. They are the 4th most popular tattoo design, after tribal, star and cross tattoos and they are probably the most popular design for women and girls.
This makes the butterfly wings longer and more stretched out than they would be in nature, but the image can be very attractive.
