Angel tattoos have become very popular in the recent years. They are just as popular with men as they are with women as it’s one of several tattoo themes that work for both, and the vast diversity of angel tattoos is the reasoning behind that.

Angel tattoos have several different meanings, and they usually have different meaning for men and women:

  • Angel tattoos on women usually represent calmness and serenity
  • Angel tattoos on men usually represent a connection to a higher self

Angel Tattoos meanings:

Angel tattoos can have different meanings, depending on the type of angel presented on them. The most common meanings for angel tattoos are love, spirituality and protection.

Many people get angel tattoos because they want to feel as if they want to feel they’re always protected and safe with their own guarding angel. Contrary to this protective meaning, there are dark angel tattoos that people get to represent the darker side of life. People can get dark angel tattoo to show their love for this darkness or even just as a reminder that it exists.

Angel tattoos also aim to pay respect for a loved one that has passed on. Many people that lost a beloved person find that these tattoos really help them cope with their loss. They may have simple angel tattoo or they may have the name of the loved one incorporated in it. Others, but make sure you found a very skilled tattoos artist before choosing this option, have the face of their loved ones incorporated into their angel tattoos.

And a little tip: If you are not sure about the angel tattoo you have selected, ask your tattoo artist to draw the tattoo you selected on your body in the same area you want your angel tattoos and walk around with the drawings for a day or two. During those two days spend some time in front of the mirror and in front of your friends to get the feeling of the angel tattoos. This is the best way to get a good feel not only for the design of the angel tattoos, but their location as well.
