That’s why angel tattoos remain ones of the most popular among men as well as women and each person can choose something for him- or herself and bring to a tattoo some special  idea. Whatever it is.

The tattoo meaning can be different depending on the type of an angel you choose. Here are some examples.

Cherubs as tattoos and their meaning

Gold-haired and blue-eyed angel children – this image was created in the Renaissance. It is still being used as an amulet, a symbol of  purity and innocence. The most well-known cherub is Cupid – a curly-haired baby with a bow and golden arrows – who can give a person clean, mutual love as well as doom one to sufferings from unanswered love. Such tattoos look great on girls. If you believe in love or dream of a pure and tender feeling then maybe this kind of angel is for you.

Angel defender tattoos

You can often see images of angels with weapons in their arms. These are angels of a high rank which are known as Archangels. It is common to depict seven Christian Archangels (Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Sariel, Jeremiel) as well as some abstract image of an angel-warrior armed with a sword or a spear. An Archangel is a symbol of protection and struggling with Darkness in the world and inside one’s soul. “The inner struggle” – that’s the meaning of an Archangel tattoo.

Fallen or dark angels as tattoos

Expelled from Paradise, fallen angels are free to choose what to do: the good or the evil. Such an image can underline the inner struggle of a person or be a reminder of some terrible mistake that has deprived you of something very important. The Dark Angel is also “a negative character”. The fisher of the souls embodies men’s fear of death. The Dark Angel will never let you forget that life flows fast and one should value every given moment.

Each person can add his or her shades of meaning to this canonical image of kindness and light using color, shape and place on the body. Whether your tattoo has a deep meaning or is made just because of your love for art, whatever you’ve chosen – your angel will always be with you, it and you being the one whole now.
