Having a Butterfly tattoo for me is quite an ordinary thing when it comes to women having one. The real reason why I would choose to have an emblem of butterfly tattoo on my skin is the meaning behind the butterfly itself — Its rebirth and renewal. I’d like to think of women who in their lives experience a lot of stages where we need to renew ourselves.

Physically, mentally, and emotionally for that matter. The butterfly, is a result of metamorphosis, as we all know. The beauty and splendor of the butterfly will not be exposed right at the very instant. It needs to go through a lot of stages like the worm or the ugly caterpillar.

Like the butterfly, women sometime need to withdraw and get into hiding and reclusion, (a cocoon) before she can even expose the magical truth about herself. Evolving into this beautiful creature, there you can see the magnificence of this exemplary transformation. Butterfly tattoos express the renewal of a woman.

Rebirth from an unsightly worm to a magical winged creature. It may also mean in ancient Greek, a soul! Chinese relate this beauty as loyalty and deep devotion. Japanese believe it to be a symbol of marital bliss and femininity. These winged creatures are very popular with tattoos and has earned a great liking with women.

However they are associated with, these symbols play an important role when one decides to have such design on her skin.
