When it comes to popular tattoo designs, the fairy tattoo ranks among some of the top designs. Fairy tattoos are very popular among women and a small portion of men also choose the design. Fairy tattoos are chosen for a few different reasons, but they are mainly chosen for their symbolic meaning and beauty. Fairies have been portrayed in movies, books, television, mythology, and other legends. At this point in time, the fairy is well known and portrayed as a child-like character. In fact, fairies have been associated with children and babies for centuries. Although the fairy is now portrayed as a positive human-like creature, it hasn't always been that way.

The thing that surprises me is the SIZE of these fairies. I thought the cool thing about them (fairies in general) is that they're small.

Interesting facts though. Voted UP and other stuff :)

KT Banks, thanks for dropping by and for the interesting comment. I would think that. The fairy is considered small in the real world, but in the tatto world, they make some exceptions. Thanks for your time and vote.

I am against tattoos in general. I can't wait until we have a plethora of wrinkled up grandmas with wrinkled up tattoos. I think especially amusing are the "Tramp Stamps."

That said, I very much enjoyed your Hub. I learned about tattoo designs—which are quite beautiful—saw lots of lovely pictures, and learned about fairies too. Thank you for this pleasure.
