Guardian Angel Tattoos
A guardian angel, of course, is someone who watches over you; in some ways, a guardian angel tattoo is like a holy fairy godmother.
Angel artwork can incorporate some of the best things about angels - like glowing auras, ephemeral wings and glittering halos - while blending in surprising and contradictory details.
Angel tattoos can be depicted smiling wanly or glowering. If you really want to throw people for a loop, you could go for an angel design that includes a dose of violent imagery - swords and guns are great options.
Of course, guardian angel tattoos don't have to be splashy or outlandish. A simple, austere depiction of an angel can convey a surprising amount of feeling and emotion. When it comes to simple tattoos, angels are definitely top contenders.
Everyone knows what an angel is. When most of us imagine an angel, a glowing being that looks a lot like a mortal human immediately comes to mind.
The major difference, in most cases, is that the angel sports a pair of ephemeral wings. Halos are optional, but they can be found in many classic and contemporary depictions of angels.
Best Things About Angels.
As you can see, angels and guardian angel tattoos have been depicted in many different ways through the years. Although angels generally conjure images of purity and goodness, they are sometimes given a strange and surprising twist.
Depictions of classic angels can be interwoven with unusual elements like barbed wire or drops of blood to create dramatic, eye-catching effects. Spunky cartoon angels can give off a rakish or even a punk kind of attitude.
