As we have already mentioned on other occasions, insect tattoos are a phenomenon that has gained great force in recent years and above all, with the arrival of the three-dimensional style with which different insects are represented in such a realistic way that they seem perched on the skin instead of tattooed on it.
Undoubtedly, we are talking about a type of design that women opt for and the result, although variable, has a good result in most cases and this is largely due to the fact that being an insect of small measures and of great color draws our attention easily due to the red color in contrast to the black dots that are a characteristic element of these insects.
The ladybug has been an insect that has always been associated with good luck, as a predictor of good weather and it is also an insect that protects crops from other insects, so it has always been well valued. There are numerous legends that talk about the good luck that ladybugs bring and that depending on the number of black spots you have we will have a certain number of children or find that exact amount of money, for example.
As we mentioned before, ladybugs are a design that is usually tattooed by women and the places chosen for it are the wrist, behind the ear, feet, hands, neck, etc. The advantage of this design is that it adapts to almost any area of the body due to its small dimensions. One piece of advice I would like to offer is that a tattooed ladybug in large dimensions tends to have an unattractive result; firstly, because the insect’s realistic measurements are not respected and the result may seem exaggerated, and secondly, the details of the insect, such as the black spots on the red wings, become too large and can take away the main element.
It should be noted that although sometimes the ladybugs appear alone, in others they are combined with other elements. Some good ideas that can offer a good result is to combine it with more ladybugs: many are the designs of different insects that due to their small size can go unnoticed, so two or more are tattooed either linearly or messy. It may also be a good idea to accompany these insects with branches or flowers that provide a color contrast to red, such as a white daisy or branches in green tones; This will offer a wide range of colors with which we will ensure that our design is not overlooked.
In conclusion, if you are a person who believes in good and bad luck, the ladybug can be a good luck charm that combines meaning and a result with style and bright colors.
Women love these designs as most of the people who get these designs tattooed are women. There are few men who decide to make one of these designs although some of them are fond of ladybugs.
Few comments can be made about most of these designs, as they are characterized by simplicity. As the title of this section indicates, they are tattoos of ladybugs of a very small size and as we have already said, it is women who usually choose them.
I would go so far as to say that most of the girls who choose these designs do so more for aesthetic reasons than for the meaning of the tattoo.
