Introduction of Fairy Tattoo Designs

The stories and fairy tales originate from western European (British Isles) folklore and then spread to Germany, where authors like the Grimm brothers made them popular. Fairies are said to be fallen angels or demons who granted the desires and wishes of humans while committing deeds full of malignancy. These spirits have very contradictory characteristics. Which is also one of the meanings of fairy tattoo designs. They are both modest and boastful, obedient and rebellious, innocent and Machiavellian. This mix of personalities could be the reason for the popularity of fairy tattoos.

Fairies, native to Celtic, Roman, and Greek mythology, are fantastic and magical beings typically depicted as small, human-like creatures of pretty women, with transparent wings and colorful clothing. That’s why fairy tattoo designs are more suitable for women. These beings, according to different mythologies, have supernatural powers, such as flying, warding off spells, predicting the future, communicating with animals and many others. Girls with fairy tattoos might have imagined that they were fairy too.
