There are many butterfly tattoo designs
Butterflies are also often included in tattoos with flowers, vines, rainbows and many of natures other scenery.
When choosing to create butterfly tattoo art from actual butterflies in nature here are several worthy of consideration:
The Blue Morpho – This neotropical butterfly is an excellent choice when opting for a single color. The iridescent blue wings are brilliantly colored with a gold underside and brown or bronze colored eyespots.
The Goliath Birdwing – This is the second largest butterfly in nature, making it a beautiful choice for a large piece, along with its brightly colored green, black and yellow almost neon coloring.
The Painted Lady – True to its name, this butterfly also known as the Thistle and Cosmopolitan butterfly, is multi-colored with blues, pinks, reds and browns covering its wings.
Tiger Swallowtail – This butterfly is likely the model for most tattoo butterflies. With large, delicate wings and bright colors, it fits perfectly the feminine image of a butterfly.
A wonderful aspect of the butterfly being incorporated into body art is its ability to fit most anywhere.
Butterflies, like stars, can stand alone in small feminine locations like ankles or wrists, or they can fill large spaces like shoulders and backs with incredible detail and amazing colors. Butterfly tattoo art has uncountable possibilities, limited only by a persons imagination.
