fairyFairy tattoos are quite a popular choice for women, although they are chosen by men as well. This creature from mythology, literature, and television can be found on arms, the lower back, the shoulder, and other areas of the body. Many people choose a fairy tattoo simply because they enjoy the look of it, but these tattoos can also have a symbolic meaning that means something to the person that chooses it. No matter why you choose a fairy tattoo, you will find that they come in many different styles, colors, and designs to allow you to find the right one for your personal preferences.

The word “fairy” comes from the Latin word “fata,” which means fate. This brings to mind the underlying symbolization of destiny. This symbolism of a fairy tattoo can bring to mind passing through different stages of life or it can be a reminder of your youth.

You will be delighted with the many different styles of fairies that you can choose from. From flying fairies with their wings outstretched to sitting fairies and more, you can find the right fairy tattoo for your intended look on your body.

A fairy tattoo is often very detailed, which will mean that it will cost a little more than other designs and it will take somewhat longer. With the many different colors and lines that are part of making the fairy come to life on your skin, you will find that this tattoo will become a central focal point of your body to add life and beauty.

Making the decision to have a fairy tattoo applied to your body means that you are ready to take the time needed to make a significant impact upon your body and your life. The fun and whimsy of the fairy, along with the symbolism of youth and having a free spirit can come together to give you a tattoo that will express your own individuality and personality. The colors and style that are available in the selection of fairy tattoos will give your body just the right look.

Whether you choose a fairy tattoo as a reminder of innocence and child-like values or you choose it just for the beauty, you will find that a fairy tattoo can give your body great flair. From a small, intricate fairy tattoo to a larger, more detailed fairy tattoo, you will find that they can make an excellent addition to any part of your body to add a bit of personality and fun to your body.

    The tattoo you posted.. it’s extremely similar to a tattoo I got 10 years ago, it’s of a fairy my Grandmother drew in the 1930’s. Is this yours? I live in Florida, had it done in a shop inside of a smoke shop called Grateful J’s. Please contact me, I’ll be happy to show you the tattoo I have as well as the original drawing.
