Cute Fairy Tattoos
Most of the time, cute fairy tattoos are chosen over simple or plain fairies.
Fairies have fascinated people for centuries. The idea of impossibly small beings who flit around - sometimes performing good deeds, other times causing a whole lot of mischief - is something that many people love to imagine.
Fairies in Literature.
Fairies have made appearances in several very famous and popular works of literature. Many years ago, they regularly showed up in medieval tattoo conventions; often, they were depicted in tales about knights errant. In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare gave cute fairies center stage. After all, a huge part of that tale takes place in Fairyland.
During the era of romanticism, cute fairy tattoos became especially prominent. Fairy folklore skyrocketed during that time.
One cute fairy that looms large in the imaginations of most children is the Tooth Fairy. After going through the trauma of losing a baby tooth, children can leave it under their pillow. During the night, the Tooth Fairy whisks their old tooth away, leaving money or treats in its stead.
Tooth Fairy Poem (anon)
I have a little tooth in here
Which I barely lost today
And I will not shed a tear
If you will kindly come my way
She came in last night
And vanished away...
With the tooth I pulled
If I could follow,
I bet I'd spy
A mountain of teeth that
Would reach the sky!
With a quality cute fairy tattoo, you can show everyone that you passionately believe in fairykind while achieving an aesthetically appealing look.
