Fairy tattoos are very popular, especially among women. Fairies represent the whimsical and imaginative parts of ourselves. They are also very tied in with nature. These creatures are depicted many times as pure and innocent, beautiful and feminine, and other times, mischievous or even malevolent. Popular locations for fairy tattoos are on back, shoulder, ankle, calf or lower back. They are usually small to make them "life size" or whatever size they would be in real life. These are often very colorful tattoos because fairies are colorful in nature. Fairy wings are also popular to get life size on the wearer's back, with the illusion that THEY are the fairy! Fairy tattoos can also be incorporated into much larger fantasy scenes. These pixies can be seen fluttering throughout an entire full back fantasy scene. Although small enough to be spread out, they also have enough personality and wonder that they are great as stand alone designs.
