The Common Butterfly Tattoo Styles Designs
Even though these tattoos often get all lumped together
under one banner there really are many different styles
and forms of the butterfly tattoo. If you are considering
getting one then it makes sense to take some time
and explore the different styles available and discover
what you like best. This will help focus your searching
efforts and help you to better communicate
Celtic styles always feature Celtic knotwork. These
are always a series of endless knots that weave over
top and under each other to make a delicate and intricate
net work forming a butterfly. Often these are done
in black and white but sometimes they include some
Tribal butterflies are always done in black ink and
are a series of edgy lines that form a kind of tribal
looking design in the shape of a butterfly. These
are strong bold butterflies that can be seen at a
distance and are not as intricate or colorful as some
of the other designs but the boldness makes them unique
Realistic butterflies can be kind of a broad range
but any type of butterfly that is instantly recognizable
as a butterfly would typically fit in this category.
These designs typically are done with bright or even
brilliant colors and often feature a wide range of
Cartoon butterflies are not so much a cartoon like
Snoopy but instead these are designs of big beautiful
butterflies that look semi realistic but have a black
outline and are somewhat simplified over the more
realistic looking designs.
Of course there are some that will not fit into any
category. So this category is a little harder to find
a typical design for but combination designs are when
a butterfly is just a part of a larger overall tattoo.
For example it might be a back piece with faeries,
flowers, and butterflies all together.
The next thing you will want to do after deciding
on the overall design of butterfly is to find some
source pictures of tattoos that have things you like
about them. For example do a google image search and
find 5 different designs that you really like. Print
them out and then write down what you like in each
one and generate a list of the styles and elements
you want to have in your design.
Select An Artist
After you have finished the above steps and chosen
your style and found some pictures to express your
ideas you will want to next find a tattoo artist that
will work with you in creating a custom design. You
can always take a shortcut and just choose some common
flash on the wall at a local tattoo shop. However,
typically you will not be very pleased with the result.
By taking the time and having a custom design done
you can really ensure that the tattoo you have done
is something you will love for many years to come.
By taking your time and narrowing down what style
you want, finding resource photographs to work from
and finding a professional tattoo artist you almost
guarantee that you will love the tattoo you end up
with for the rest of your life! Tattoos are expensive
no doubt about it but paying that extra is money well
spent. Most of all take your time in selecting the
design and have fun with the journey. It is not always
about the end result of a tattoo but often the journey
to getting one that will last in your memory.
