Many women have chosen to have a blue butterfly tattoo on their lower back not only because of the wonderful color, but also because of the significance of such a creature.
The blue butterfly is a rare species of butterfly that is found in some areas of Europe and Asia. Its life span is a short few weeks, yet the creature is beautiful. As a symbol, a butterfly suggests femininity and resilience (spending so much time as an unattractive chrysalis to become a beautiful butterfly!). It is a favorite amongst women who have succeeded despite adversity and troubled times.
Having a blue tattoo is seen by some as a bolder move than having a red or pink tattoo. Blue is obviously generally seen as a masculine color. However, the combination of the blue with the delicacy of the form of the butterfly shape is certainly appealing and intriguing to the eye. As such, having a blue butterfly tattoo is seen by some as the perfect lower back butterfly tattoo.
A butterfly tattoo is perfect for the lower back area. The lower back is the place least likely to stretch during your life and thus the shape will not become distorted like it could do if you had it tattooed onto your stomach or upper arm. The hips are symmetrical and rounded; with the hip curving inwards almost to reflect the wings of a butterfly. If the butterfly is placed onto the base of the lower back, it can be viewed as guarding the creative energy of the wearer, as well as emphasizing the beauty of the wearer on all sides.
It remains a choice for the individual as to whether the butterfly is accompanied with anything else – perhaps some leaves or thyme (the plant most closely connected to the blue butterfly). Some women like to include feint suggestions of the chrysalis to emphasize the life cycle of the butterfly, but this is not necessary if you would simply prefer the butterfly alone. It is up to you.
