Due to the developmental existence of the butterfly, lots of people choose to have a lower back butterfly tattoo to emphasize their own personal growth. Maybe they have begun a new chapter in their life; maybe they want to show that they’re stronger than they were before. The butterfly symbolizes the ability to bounce back.
There is no escaping the grace of the butterfly. Its flight is graceful and its markings are beautiful. It is therefore judged by most as the epitome of beauty and grace; a prime symbol of femininity.
Despite the beauty and delicate nature of the butterfly, it’s able to fly thousands of miles to warmer climates and possibly have an effect on the whole environment (the butterfly effect). Having a butterfly tattoo demonstrates your personal strength and resilience.
Deciding which lower back butterfly tattoo to be tattooed with, the options are pretty endless! This is overwhelming, but bear in mind that your tattoo has to be the tattoo you adore.
ALONE OR WITH FRIENDS?
First up, it is a good idea to determine whether you want to have the butterfly on its own or with some other elements.
Many women decide to just include the image of the butterfly because they feel it is a clearer statement of creativity. Nevertheless, you may want to consider incorporating the butterfly with a chrysalis to accentuate the developmental element of butterflies.
A few folks have come up with very intricate designs where the main butterfly is constituted by many little butterflies.
In addition, you could combine the butterfly with bits of its normal living environment; plants, pollen and sunshine are all excellent inclusion that are suited to a butterfly tattoo, and which also emphasize the curvy nature and feminine nature of your lower back.
Next, you will have to decide on how wide you want the butterfly.
Being tattooed with a smaller version would demonstrate its elegance, but having a large butterfly will demonstrate its strength. It’s your choice, but keep in mind that you’ll have this tattoo for life (or until you have it expensively and painfully taken off by laser surgery!).
The last choice you will be required to make is whether the tattoo should be black. There are two schools of thought on the use of color in tattoos.
The first states that colors lessen the absolute beauty of a tattoo.
The other is that colors increase the intricacy and beauty. It is up to determine for yourself which you agree with.
Obviously, butterflies provide a wide choice of colors from which to choose however if you would prefer to include colors that no known species has, that’s totally your choice and will ensure your inking is as perfect for you as possible.
Related with this is the choice of how bright you want the tattoo to be. For many, feint tattoos emphasize femininity and poise.
