One of the most popular designs for female tattoo enthusiasts has to be angel tattoos for women. While men can also be seen sporting this design, what is it about this great design that makes them so popular with women? Well, firstly they make great designs and secondly they have specific symbolism that appeals to many. Some of the more masculine tattoos don’t look so great on women but fairy and angel designs are very attractive and also look good on a woman. You could have a large elaborate angel tattoo on your back or a tiny cute fairy design on your shoulder or ankle both of which are very aesthetically pleasing. However while these are undoubtedly pleasing on the eye, it is perhaps their significant meaning that is the main reason they are chosen by so many.

The symbolism behind angel tattoos for women can convey many different meanings and may send a different message to each individual but in its basest form it is viewed as a type of guardian angel. This provides protection from evil, life’s misfortune is permanently watching over the wearer, according to the beliefs of many. Due to the angel’s link with God they also have religious connotations for many and while they appear regularly throughout the Bible, they also feature in other cultures too widening their appeal across differing religious beliefs. As they also link heaven and earth, this symbolism of life and death also means they are used by many as a spiritual reminder of a loved one who is no longer with us in body.

On the whole there are many reasons why angels are so popular but fairy designs are also widely sought after by many women today. And why not, they are cute and pretty and invoke childhood memories of happiness and contentment that many women remember fondly. A fairy also represents friendliness and warmth, personal attributes which many girls want to get across in their tattoo design. However fairies can also have a mischievous side and are not all sweetness and light like their saintly counterparts the angels. It is these rebellious character trait that makes them appeal to many women especially those of us who have a naughty side. Therefore it is not surprising that angel and fairy designs appeal so much. They look great and also represent specific character traits both naughty and nice as well as the spiritual and religious symbolism behind them too.
