Have you been thinking about what your next tattoo design should be? If you want a mythical design that will amaze all who look upon it, the best choice may be angel wings. These heavenly instruments of flight have a long history over the past millennium of art. Let your body be the next canvas, equal in beauty to Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine Chapel.
Traditionally, angels are seen as guardians of mere mortal men. They are prevalent throughout Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, so angel wing tattoos don’t really carry the stigma or relationship of any of these religions. That means that anyone can feel comfortable sporting a pair on their body. Angels also hold the distinction of being God’s personal messengers, at least to a sizable number of the people who will see your tattoo. Still, it’s important to realize that your tattoo doesn’t necessarily have to possess any kind of religious connotation. What’s yours is yours, and when the ink dries, you’ll have a unique design that has never been seen before.
Angel tattoos are thought to have different meanings in relation to the two sexes. On a woman, an angel is viewed as a means for search within oneself, often for the purity of the soul. When a man wears an angel tattoo, it’s thought to signal a deep and profound respect for women. Sometimes men who are deeply and madly in love will get an angel wing tattoo as a symbol of their devotion. Ladies, watch out! A man with angel wings is probably more passionate than anyone you’ve dated yet.
Guardian angels are also very popular. These are seen as a method of protecting the wearer from evil. One of the most frequent visitors to the tattoo studio is a person who has recently experienced tragedy in the form of a death in the family. They seek to ink an angel somewhere on their body to represent the departed person watching (and protecting) them from above.
Your angel wings tattoo can be as intricate or as simple as you want. Many people like a design that shows individual feathers. Remember that this tattoo represents you: therefore, it should be a unique and strong design that makes a personal statement. Obviously, with a more complicated design, you’ll need more money to make your dream of an angel wing tattoo a reality. Keep in mind that this symbol will be with you forever, so you may want to budget a little extra to finance the special little touches that will set you apart from the crowd.
An angel tattoo is a beautiful way to express whatever message you seek to impart to others. You’ll have the attention of an entire room (or beach!) whenever your tattoo is visible. There’s nothing sexier or more mysterious than an angel waiting to swoop down from heaven with an important message, and your tattoo will certainly reflect that.
