8 Butterfly Tattoos You’ll Want To Get ASAP

Call them cheesy or cliché, but there are a handful of traditional tattoo designs that will never truly go out of style, and butterflies are one of them. Growing up in the ’90s meant rocking temporary watercolour tats of the colourful insects, not to mention all the butterfly clips and glitter graphic tees we owned on top of that… Our love of Mariah Carey may or may not have had something to do with it.

Carey isn’t the only celebrity who’s intrigued by the fluttery critter: Earlier this year, Ariana Grande debuted two new butterflies on her bicep, and just last month Cardi B revealed a huge back piece with multicoloured butterflies that took over 60 hours to complete. What more proof could you need that the tattoo trend is here to stay?

Of course, in addition to just being pretty, butterflies can also be seen as a symbol for transformation. So if you’ve been playing with the idea of getting new ink with a powerful meaning, we rounded up some of our favourite butterfly art, ahead.

For a timeless take, ask for fine lines with light shading along the edges of your butterfly wings.
Why have just one butterfly when you can have three?
Opt for subtle watercolour tones throughout your ink to mimic the kaleidoscopic hues of the IRL insect.
A fine-line butterfly paired with a lightly shaded rose is a match made in tattoo heaven.
From afar, you probably won’t make out the details of this minimalist piece, but you’ll be in awe of the delicate line work when you zoom in.
This partially-floral piece is the perfect artwork to get to match with your best friend or other half.
Draw abstract florals in your butterfly wings for a whimsical nod to nature.
Dainty butterflies are cute, but if you really want to make a statement, ask your artist for a larger print of the winged insect.
