Angel tattoos are a popular choice for the religious and the non-religious alike. Regardless of your religious beliefs and faith practices, the angel is a symbol of goodness, hope, redemption, and something higher than ourselves. People choose to get angel tattoos for different reasons. The most literal is to show their religious beliefs in the Christian God and His angels of different kinds including Guardian angels, cherubs, and seraphim. Others get angel tattoos as a memorial for those who have passed, especially for children or people who left their lives too early. Angel wings are also popular to get on the back, for an effect of the wearer having angel wings. Angels can also be depicted as sexy, in a pinup style, for the contrast of good and a little bit bad. Realistic styles are among the most popular since it is such an iconic and epic symbol to get. Other styles are seen as well, such as new school and traditional.
