"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun, and find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness and riches today, tomorrow and beyond."

~ old Irish blessing

Because of the mystery, beauty and mythology that surrounds them, butterflies are a natural subject of tattoo design.

The humble caterpillar's metamorphosis - into a beautifully colored, light & incandescent creature - gives the butterfly a magical quality that in Asian cultures look upon as the essence of pure joy. In Ireland, the butterfly is traditionally believed to bring good luck, while American and Mexican Indian tribes connect it to fertility, or the mystical transformation of one life form to another.

As such, the butterfly design is inherently a feminine one, and has become by far the most popular among women as a graceful and discreet statement placed on the back or shoulder, or more boldly on the chest, neck or cheek.

The butterfly lends itself to a wide variety of colors, designs and shapes, so if you are considering a butterfly tattoo design by all means let your imagination run wild.
