Since childhood we have had a close contact with dragonfly. We usually observe the tiny creature skitters across the surface of a pond, or flies around in the bush. It has different symbolism over different cultures. Most of these symbolic connotations are derived from the Native American and Japanese cultures. The Native American believes that the human soul will transform into a dragonfly after death.
The flying creature has a short life span. Because of the brief life cycle, dragonfly tattoos are meant for those who want to live to their fullest lives with what they have. In general, the design also depicts strength, peace, purity, harmony, good fortune and prosperity. The emblems are often chosen when someone has gone through a turning point in life, and gained a high level of knowledge. It represents someone with good wisdom.
Dragonfly tattoo designs can be inked in a variety of colors, or in black hue. Although they may look more feminine in nature, many men are also attracted by the delicate beauty of the motif these days. Depending on where you want to place the design, you can ink one dragonfly, a pair, or a few, and blend the artwork with other elements such as flowers and butterflies. The design look superb to be sported on the feet, forearms, hips, upper back, belly button, and lower back.
