Do Angel Tattoos have a Meaning of any real Substance?

Angel tattoos can represent a strong connection to faith and religion, but they also symbolise protection. Angels are the servants of God and human protectors, they can also signify beauty, purity and kindness.


These designs come in different forms, there are Guardian Angels (protector), Baby Angels (life), Death Angels (sadness or loss) and Fallen Angels (strength) each representing a slightly different meaning.


If you want a design which symbolises angels in general then an angel wings design could be perfect for you, but if you are planning to get this on your back, it is definitely not for the faint-hearted!
