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.
