Dragonflies are mythical looking creatures. They are not pretty like butterflies, but they certainly are not ugly like most bugs. Dragonflies almost look like they exist in the parallel universe of fairies and elves. The wings themselves are unique and beautiful, and their long, weighty bodies still zip around quite fast in the air. If you’ve ever seen a dragonfly at top speed, it’s an amazing thing to watch! Because these creatures seem like they are magic and should only exist in fairy tales, it’s easy to see why so many people love them. Because they are made up of such a dynamic design, they make for an impressive tattoo. Realistic or more abstracted, their shape remains epic.
