In a recent study conducted over 1000 people in the US it turns out that when it comes to tattoos, women out number men. A total of 59% of women were found to have at least one tattoo versus only 41% with the men. With that in mind we’re going to take a look at one of the more popular tattoos among women – the butterfly tattoo. Now we’re not saying that getting a butterfly tattooed on you us unmanly (well it kind of is) but it does go without saying that butterflies are one of the top designs chosen by women to get tattooed on themselves. Why is this? Well obviously they’re beautiful, but everyone knows that.
The butterfly also represents love, peace, flight and most of all transformation. Let’s remember that the butterfly starts out as a caterpillar and through time evolves in to the beautiful butterfly which we all know and love. This transformation is symbolic to a lot of women that have changed or grown from their past. Sometimes it is as simple as the change from girl to woman or maybe they have overcome a dark period in their life in the past – whatever it is, we don’t want to dig too deep in to the meaning behind it all, we just want to go ahead and show you 25 of our favorite butterfly tattoo designs.
