Today there is still a very huge interest in the culture of the Celtic people. Thousands of years after the golden age of their culture their stories, legends and artwork continue to permeate our world today. This wonderful civilization had a very close connection with the earth and a belief system that was based in nature. Many of the most beautiful images and powerful images have come into the world of tattoos and many people today are seeking out tattoo artists that can specialize in Celtic knot work patterns and tribal designs. One of the most popular designs for omen is the tribal Celtic butterfly tattoo.

One of the stories that has for sure inspired some of the popularity of butterfly tattoo designs from the Celtic people is this wonderful story about a beautiful young princess named Etain. She was so beautiful she caught the eye of the High King. He feel in love with her at first sight and tried to do everything he could to impress her. Thus lead the High Queen to become jealous and cast a spell on Etain turning her into a butterfly. She lived the next few years as a butterfly. Then by luck one day she fell into the wine bottle of another queen. This queen drank the wine and the butterfly. Then she gave birth to a baby girl (Etain) who grew up and was finally able to marry the high king.

The Celtic people had a belief system or religion that was totally based on nature. Today religious scholars call that a naturalistic religion. Therefore everything in nature had a complex set of beliefs. For example the butterfly was believed to be a symbol of transformation and renewal. In fact it was pretty common that the Celtic people believed that is a butterfly was accidentally ingested by a female either swallowed in drink or eaten in food then the butterfly would transform and be born a women.

Of course there are a variety of different locations that you can decide to get a Celtic butterfly tattoo. One of the most common and favored spots it he lower back. However, this seems to almost be too common these days and many women are looking for other spots to get tattoos of. Some for the other choices might be a full back tattoo if you are looking for a rather large design. If you want something smaller then a hip, ankle or foot tattoo can also work well with a Celtic butterfly design.

Finding A Butterfly Tattoo Design You have a few choices to make once you have decided to get a butterfly tattoo. Of course you have to think about the location for the tattoo and the design that you want. You can choose from stock flash that is present in the tattoo shop. This is the least expensive option but the downside of this is you are limited to existing designs that might not fit what you want. If you want something more specialized and unique then you can always get a custom tattoo design. Look carefully for a competent tattoo artist and one that will listen to your input and ideas for the tattoo.
