There are many options available for a tribal butterfly tattoo. This is one of the huge benefits of using the tribal design incorporated into traditional tattoos. First of all, the chances of seeing someone else with the same tattoo will be drastically reduced. Plus, you can incorporate other symbols or patterns into your design to add depth to the meaning of your tattoo.
Another thing to consider is that if you get a tribal butterfly tattoo, you don't have use colors if you don't want to. One color tattoos, black work or black and gray work are often the top choice for some. Over time, some inks fade. There have been great advances to eliminate this problem, but it will always exist due to poor quality inks, inexperienced tattoo artist or even skin pigmentation.
Some people think that females are the only ones attracted towards the tribal butterfly tattoo, but I've actually seen some great pieces that were inked on men. I'm not sure that I would go that route myself, but hey that's the great part about tattoos. You can express yourself in any way that you want to. Usually tribal tattoos have a masculine energy about them because of their bold, thick lines. But in the case of the tribal butterfly tattoo, for example, they are versatile and they tend to look very good on women as well.
here are many things that a tribal butterfly tattoo can symbolize, and there are many variations. Now I'm not so sure that they hold magic powers, but in some cultures, still to this day, tribal tattoos are believed to posses such power. For example, in some tribes, a boy is assigned a totem animal during his rites of passage. Their belief is/was that the wearer inherits some of the powers of his totem animal by wearing a tattoo of such animal.
So, if you are looking for a cool tribal butterfly tattoo or other tribal tattoo ideas for yourself or a friend, you should take your time and make a wise choice. This is a lifetime commitment. Don't decide on a particular tattoo design after just looking at few hundred sketches. There are thousands and thousands of examples and ideas that are easy to find online.
