Adding Different Design Elements to Fairy Tattoos


Visitors: 476

Fairy tattoos are among the most common tattoos that women choose to get placed on various parts of their bodies. In order for these tattoos to express the significant meaning that these women want to express, it is often important to them that they include more than just a simple design. Incorporating other design elements including everything from flowers to fashion designs can make one woman's tattoo stand out from all of the others in the crowd. Since body art is supposed to be an individual's tool for self-expression, this type of differentiation is really important to most people.

Although there are many different ways that these designs can be added to in order to change their original design, there are actually some ways that are more common than others. Adding flowers is an example of something that is commonly done but which can be done in such a way that the individuality of the tattoo isn't lost. Flowers that are incorporated into the art can have special meanings to the wearer. For example, the flower may be the flower that represents the birth month of the wearer. Or a chain of different flowers may represent the birth months of the wearer's children. Although the addition of the flower itself is common, the way in which it is included in the design can make it more personal.

Of course, there are also more dramatic or different ways to alter all sorts of body art so that they appear more unique. Some people choose to use the design of a fairy only loosely to create an image that more accurately represents who they are. The image dressed up in dark gothic clothing would be one example of how the design may be changed to personalize it without changing the fact that it is still a fairy tattoo. Another example would be to depict the image dressed up in haute couture fashions or holding accessories that are more modern and less magical than most traditional images would be.

Speaking of holding things is yet another way that the design can be easily changed so that they represent more of the individuality of the person who is going to be wearing the art. It can be depicted holding almost any item. The person who is looking at fairy tattoos may want to think about what items or symbols are most important to them and see if there is a way that the creation could be holding these items in the design. If the image is large enough, it could represent something important to the wearer such as a favorite piece of jewelry or the name of a loved one.

These are just a few of the ways that body art can be improved upon in order to make them different from what every other woman out there with a fairy tattoo has tattooed on her body. They are certainly common enough now that people are going to draw from a well of some of the same symbols to get inspiration for their designs. Despite this, the tattoo remains a highly personal work of art that is worn on the body for reasons of self-expression. Altering fairy tattoos in ways either small or large can help maintain the important uniqueness of the body art.
