The butterfly has always been admired for their beauty, as one of the most magnificent creations on Earth. A wide variety of butterfly tattoo designs are available at the professional tattoo parlor which can be altered according to your desire and need. The main reason is the human/butterfly connection that has existed for centuries and recanted in the mythologies of many ancient civilisations. It's a widely held belief that butterflies are the physical symbols of the human soul and just as the night butterfly is attracted by flame, the human soul is attracted by heavenly truths. For many peoples the short life of the butterfly is symbolic of the different stages of life that a human being goes through. It also symbolises the change to a heavenly body from an earthly one. There are more than twenty five thousand different types of butterflies in existence so there are plenty of designs to choose from - certainly enough of them to express your own individual style.
