Angel Tattoo Designs, Ideas and Meanings:
The Angel is a spiritual being created by God. The word angel comes from a Greek word meaning “messenger” or “one who is sent.” Angles have been depicted throughout history as God’s messengers and soldiers. They delivered His word and carried out His punishments upon mankind.
Angel tattoos are popular with both women and men. On women, angel tattoos are seen to represent serenity and calmness within, while on men an angel tattoo represents a connection with the higher self.
Most Angel tattoo designs are of a beautiful winged figure, floating, sometimes sitting on a cloud or with clouds around, holding a harp, or trumpet.
Angels are protective, so it is common for the angel to be hovering, representing their protective nature. Another popular design is angel wings. These can be any size and located just about anywhere.
