Dragonfly Tattoos are popular for two reasons.First the Dragonfly has the same feminine aesthetic appeal as Butterfly or Fairy Tattoos but is decidedly less common. Second, the dragonfly, like the butterfly, is a rich source for positive symbolism and meaning. Both of these factors combine to make the dragonfly an Ideal Tattoo motif, particularly among Women.Dragonfly Tattoos
Dragonflies as Tattoos first gained widespread popularity in the late 1990s. Butterfly Tattoos were, perhaps, the most common tattoo chosen by women during this time and those who liked the image but wanted something a little more unique chose the dragonfly. Like butterflies, dragonflies are very delicate and feminine looking. They often have colorful and beautiful, though incredibly delicate, wings. This fragility and beauty makes it more appealing to women than men as a tattoo design. Dragonfly Tattoos
More commonly though Dragonfly Tattoos are stylized designs of dragonflies.They have embellished or decorative wings more slender or graceful bodies and unnatural but beautiful colors.Usually people with these tattoos find the dragonfly to be a beautiful creature in theory but also like the symbolic meanings of luck, fertility, purity, or harmony. Neither opinion is more valid and both create beautiful and impressive tattoos. Dragonfly Tattoos
The Dragonfly is an exceptionally beautiful creature which seem to possess a certain mystical quality perhaps because of their resemblance to what a fairy is imagined to look like or maybe its because of the ancient Asian myth that a Dragonfly represents virtues including happiness success and victory among other positive aspects.Dragonfly Tattoos are also enjoyed by both men and women, unlike butterfly and fairy artwork which is most commonly seen on women alone.
