Cupid Tattoo Art
Cupid is one of the more identifiable symbols of love, and those with that special attraction and feeling for someone at times will decide to ink a cupid on their bodies to express that love.
One nice thing about Cupid, as long as you don't foolishly include a name, is they will work with any person you're currently seeing, so if things don't work out, it is no problem to use it as a symbol of your current relationship.
On the other hand, those you tattoo the name of someone they're unsure of, or if someone isn't that good in relationships, it's by far best to not ink a name on yourself, as most people will always regret it, as far as romance goes. Obviously parents or children are a different matter.
As for Cupid tattoo designs themselves, most of them include the traditional Cherub look, with the arrow pointed at the heart of the intended recipient.
Although I wouldn't recommend it, there are some couples who decide to have matching Cupid tattoos. Again, as long as you don't include a name, this is something that can be overcome if the relationship is ended.
Most cupid tattoos are on the lighter side, but some people choose to have a more dark cupid design.
Either way, as long as there is love there will be Cupid, and that means the love doctor will continue to be a part of tattoo art.

The Cupid tattoo below was interesting in that it didn't include the string on the bow, making me wonder if it was intentional. When you think of Cupid, he is a magical being, and the lack of string probably wouldn't keep the arrow from flying to the intended person. Cool conversation piece if nothing else.
