Meaning of butterfly tattoos
To start talking about the meaning of butterfly tattoos, we must first look back a bit.
In Japan, butterflies symbolize femininity and youth. While a tattoo of two butterflies represents marital happiness and the happiness that a good marriage can live with.
For the ancient Aztecs there were two types of death that were considered the noblest of all: the death of the warrior in battle and the death of the mother in childbirth. On their bodies, butterflies were placed and they thought that butterflies were a part of those noble souls.
In Christianity the butterfly has also represented the soul, a soul that escapes from the prison of the flesh and flies free.
For the Greeks it also represented the soul, the journey and flight of the soul, its evolution, birth, development and death, as well as the renewal of the soul. One of the most common beliefs was that butterflies were entrusted with carrying the spirit and soul of people from earth to heaven.
Symbology of tattoos with butterflies
Over time, butterflies have represented various things according to each culture. The meaning itself has been modified according to the historical context and the different civilizations, ethnic groups or religions.
But it is clear that the butterfly itself means change, since it is a being that through a rigorous effort goes through a long and slow metamorphosis to transform from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
A butterfly tattoo mainly represents that that person has changed for the better after going through hard times.
These tattoos are then full of symbolism. Among other things, they symbolize evolution, change, beauty, the grace of nature and of life itself. Together with the phoenix it is perhaps the maximum representation of a personal transformation, whether emotional, work, economic or sentimental.
Without a doubt, they are tattoos with various meanings interpretable in many ways depending on who. The colors used for the tattoo and the chosen design can give it a wide range of shades that symbolize what you want to express.
