Butterfly Tattoos Designs

Aug 17, 2007
Larger and stylized or miniature and classic, Butterfly tattoos are particular popular on lower back and chest tattooing decoration because the peculiar symmetry and color of their wings, although this type of tattoo can be worn on whatever other area of your body that you would prefer.

For many people butterflies are the expression of freedom, and there are between 15,000 to 20,000 common and well-known butterfly species around the world to choose from for your Butterfly Tattoos designs.

Some of those butterflies are the Common Yellow Swallowtail, Spicebush Swallowtail, Lime Butterfly, Small White, Green-veined White, Common Jezebel, Xerces Blue, Karner Blue, Red Pierrot, Lange's Metalmark Butterfly, Plum Judy, Painted Lady or Cosmopolite, and the famous Monarch butterfly.

Some other Butterfly Tattoos designs may be based on uncommon species, such as the Ornithoptera genus, also known as birdwings, and the largest of all butterflies, and the Lycaeides Melissa samuelis, an endangered butterfly. Although, it is not necessary to have a deep knowledge of butterflies to choose the tattoo that you like the most.

There is a difference between moths and butterflies, both of which are confused between each other frequently and many people consider that a butterfly is just a day flying moth. As versatile as they are, Butterfly Tattoos designs can be the mix of both butterflies and moths. In addition, because butterflies live on nectar from flowers, many tattooists design them flying above, beside, or on them.
