If you're looking for a few butterfly tattoo designs and ideas, then this guide was written for you. Specifically, we're going to look at the many different types of butterfly designs that exist. By the time you've finished reading, you'll know if they're for you. So let's get started.
Firstly, if there was one type of design that is both hugely popular, and comes with massive variety – then the butterfly tattoo would be it.
A small butterfly is perfect for the hand, foot, arm, lower back, stomach – practically anywhere! They also make for great first tattoos, to see how you feel about having one.
Some people choose to get lots of small butterfly tattoos, and build them up over time. This can have a very pretty and interesting effect.
A good design idea often incorporates several butterflies which are interwoven in a pattern over flowers, or other smaller butterflies. The butterfly and flower combination is particularly popular, and it looks great!
If you want to go for something a little out of the ordinary, then it's possible to have one part of the butterfly design on one part of your body, and have the other half matching up to it. For example, you could have one half on the left foot, and the other on the right foot.
If you're getting a first tattoo, and you want a good location for a small butterfly to be placed, then think about having it on the lower back, the side of your stomach, or sometimes on the underneath of your wrist.
