Angel Tattoos, Designs, Pictures, and Ideas

tattoo designs
Angel tattoos are often associated with religion, and many people get these pieces as an expression of faith. Angels are also seen as the ultimate symbol for purity, goodness, hope and protection, so many people choose these images for their body art as a way to represent loved ones, to protect and remember a relative or friend who has passed away, or as a way to guard themselves from the evils of the world.angel tattoos

Some of the most popular styles of angel tattoos include realistic imagery. These pieces often show the angel in a portrait style with a face and figure that is similar to a person who is well known to the wearer. These angels may be modeled after a well-loved family member or friend or may reflect the image of a celebrity or famous artist’s model. Often times, this particular style is used for remembrance pieces or to express that the wearer feels the person in the picture is of a pure, innocent nature.

Ideas for angel tattoos can be taken directly from classical art pieces. Raphael’s β€œCherubs,” Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones’ “The Angel,” and “An Angel in Green with a Vielle,” by Leonardo da Vinci are all great classical works that can be transformed into stylish body art designs. More modern artists like Laverne Ross and Elvira Amrhein may also provide beautiful material for angel pieces. An interesting alternative to this would be to go back even further in time and use ancient Greek statues and carvings as inspiration.

Cartoon-like angel tattoos are not uncommon to see. This particular style often shows a cherubic angel with a pouty-lipped, chubby-cheeked face set atop childlike hands and backed by a set of white, feathery wings. Often, these images display a small scene that shows the angel in a number of common and uncommon settings. For example, he or she may shown resting in a forest or fighting off an equally cartoonish demon. Pin up angels are another variety of cartoon-based angel pieces, and are often used to show the dual nature of the wearer – the curvaceous, sensuality of the pin up model, and the sweet innocence of the angel.

  5. Jeremy Said,

    Hi, I’m just wondering if you could produce for me a tattoo design of an angel, wings spread fully, both arms hanging down with one wielding a sword and a man at the angels feet, kneeling. The male should be smaller (in proportion) to the angel and the angel should appear as though he were floating. It’s for a chest tattoo. I’d prefer no color. Thanks ahead of time.

    I’m looking to create a memorial tattoo for my fallen brothers that I lost in Afghanistan. The idea I have in my head is an angel, male or female, carrying a soldier in his arms, kneeling on one knee, looking up toward the heavens, with its wings guarding the body from further harm, like they’re about to wrap around him. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
