Butterfly tattoos are usually not associated with men, but made with specific motifs or other designs, they look very cool. Each culture had its own representation and symbolism of what butterflies represent. But they usually represent metamorphosis or a drastic change in life. The journey from a caterpillar to a butterfly is a long, tedious and difficult journey, so in case you have accomplished something after a lot of conflicts or if you have experienced a radical change in your life, the butterfly is the perfect symbol to get tattooed with. .
Ancient mythology of different cultures over time believed in various things about butterflies. The Greeks believed that every time a butterfly emerges from its cocoon, a new human soul is born. The Irish believed that butterflies were the souls of the dead waiting to go through purgatory. The Germans believed that butterflies were actually babies reborn from the dead and gave children to childless couples. Europeans believed that human souls take the form of butterflies and are viewed with great fear and respect. Chinese and Japanese associate joy and happiness with butterflies, while Indians associated butterflies with the dead, with the journey they face in death and when a butterfly eventually dies, it symbolizes the final death of the soul. During the Holocaust there were barracks assigned to children who were about to be put to death, on those walls there were millions of butterflies scratched by stones or fingers. The children, who knew they were going to die, used butterflies as a symbol of hope, that even if their current life is over, they will continue to live like butterflies.
Men prefer to get butterfly tattoos with other masculine designs such as the cross and Celtic or tribal designs. They use it in long sleeve or chest tattoos with a specific theme going on. Some butterfly tattoos made with tribal designs have Chinese or Japanese lettering between the wings. This looks truly unique and mysterious. Nowadays, butterflies are associated with beauty, grace, transformation, freedom and independence, but also with superficiality and instability. This is because a butterfly flutters from flower to flower, never staying long enough on anyone.
So, if you are a man and want to get yourself a butterfly tattoo, go ahead and get one. Butterfly tattoos don’t necessarily have to be feminine in nature. They symbolize change and a man can go through a change, if you are still hesitant, get one with various other designs but create a singular theme for it. Remember; think about any tattoo before getting one, as removing it can be equally tedious and sometimes painful.
