Fairies and Angels Tattoos

An angel tattoo design is an overtly religious symbol. Angels
are anthropomorphic – meaning in the shape of men – winged
forms intended to transmit the word of God to humankind.
Angels personify divine will and are the messengers of God.

Winged messengers appear in a number of religions as
intermediaries between the spiritual and material worlds, but
appear most often in Islamic, Jewish but most particularly the
Christian faiths. The word angel comes from the Greek
‘aggelos’, meaning messenger. Angels make frequent
appearances in the Christian Bible, not only as messengers of
God but also delivering his protection or punishment. Angels act
as God’s intermediaries, carrying out God’s will in the affairs of
man.

Symbols closely associated with angels in art include trumpets,
harps, swords, sceptres and wands. Angels are usually
portrayed as young men with wings and halos, representing
their divinity. The representation of angels as Cupid-like young
boys or babies, ‘putti’ did not occur until the period of the
Renaissance.

As a tattoo design, an angel is a symbol of devotion, spirituality
and faith and signifies a relationship with God. An angel can be
intended as a figure of guidance and protection. An angel is
often used as the centerpiece of a tattoo that is intended as a
memorial.
