Many insects really cause us a absolute disgust at just hearing their names. The cockroach is one of them, and merit to do to have our rejection and our obsession to destroy it as soon as we see one. She lives in the pipes, picking up all kinds of microbes with her feeble little feet, and then she walks so calmly on our kitchen counter or, directly and if she has occasion, even for our food. And above they are ready, the only ones that would survive a nuclear war, along with the rats (although there are those who wonder what then the rat killers or insecticides carry …). Who in their right mind would get a cockroach tattooed? There are some others, just take a look on the Internet.
Anyway, not all insects are so horrifying and abominable. The butterfly, for example, is the most beautiful and cheerful, ideal to be on the skin on flowers of also beautiful colors, drawn its simple silhouette, in black or with tribal motifs. Or, the spider, although it arouses our fear, also remains in a hyper-realistic design. Already the superhero Spiderman made sure that we saw it with different eyes. Of course, the spider is not an insect, but an arachnid. The example, however, is worth to illustrate that small bugs can also molar on the skin.
Who is an insect and also cool is the ladybug. It comes with his particular passion red and his black spots, highlighting on the green leaf on which it perches. We feel like a happy flamenco girl in the countryside, oblivious to everything, in scenes of the most bucolic. We like.
From its description, it is clear that choosing it would be betting on an aesthetic tattoo, but the ladybug has a meaning beyond beauty. It is associated with good luck in many countries, in which an encounter with her (especially for those who most believe in these things) could mean the arrival of fortune, good health, money or love.
To attract them, a ladybug can fit perfectly on your skin, for example, in its simplest form. Its colors (which we invite you to reproduce) are enough to provide a complete design, with a small, flat ladybug ideal for illustrative purposes, for the wrist or ankle. There is also the hyper-realistic version, using the most advanced techniques in the tattoo studio, with shadow and shine on its surface. And, of course, also the composition, using leaves and flowers of the most spring to complete a cheerful and fun tattoo. You can even choose to draw in detail its legs and head, in a more “bug” version of your tattoo if you like insects, or more “cartoon”, with a flirtatious attitude or big eyes and eyelashes.
And it is that the ladybug has been attributed a lot of femininity, due to its peculiar characteristics. No wonder, therefore, that it inspires deplorable insults to gay men, who are wounded using adjectives like “ladybug”, “fagot” or “fagot”. There is no reason (and it is unfortunate that it happens) to marginalize a person because of their sexual orientation, religious belief, ideology, or sex. In the social moment in which we find ourselves, as a personal assessment, we are in need of good people, regardless of the rest. They should not be vain words, but something to internalize. Therefore, against intolerance, marginalization or even, worse still, the repression of homosexuals, a ladybug would tattoo me well. It will depend, however, on how and who uses the term to know if it is pejorative or not.
The ladybug, the weird bug, the one with the different “skin” … and, at the same time, the most beautiful and original, tattoo her!
