In te old days, tattoos were only seen on the males’ body. The sailors are thought to be the initial group to wear ink besides the indigenous people around the world. With more and more females starting to wear tattoos, there have been many changes made to the designs over the decades to suit the tastes and styles of the women. Among all the designs, angel tattoos for girls are quite popular especially for the younger new generation.
Angel designs are not only beautiful and creative, but they also carry some religious and spiritual meanings. They are the bridge, agent, or representative of God. The word “angel” derived from the Greek word “angelos” which means to convey information, or to pass on messages. Many religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism attribute angel as god’s messenger. They are the essence of joy and love from the heart of the higher power. Their numbers are countless flocking around in the universe, and they are sent to this world to bring us peace.
Some people sport the holy being as a representation of protection, spirituality, love and pure devotion to god. It is a good way for the disciples to show their love, respect, and keep their faith with god at all times. It is also believed that a person will transform into angel after passing on to protect those who they really love. The tattoo is often worn to commemorate someone who is important in their life.
There are many types of designs available with mostly positive meanings. Some people fancy a pair of wings on their back. Others may want to wear guardian angel symbols to bring them peacefulness and comfort. A cherub is another alternative design that represents love, hope and innocence. It is often associated with the Cupid that shoots arrows through the hearts of two lovers—a symbol that is used for love. The tattoo will look good on your upper arm, chest, shoulder, areas between the two shoulder blades.
While many of these holy beings are associated with positive connotations of the higher power, some have a negative image such as the fallen angel who is expelled from heaven due to bad conduct and behavior. They are often intertwined with the demons to make a wicked design.
It is important that you know exactly how you want the tattoo to speak for your personality and your way of life. Pick a design that suits your taste and meaning so you can appreciate it for a very long time.
