Butterfly Back Piece Tattoo

For the Native American Indian, butterflies symbolized joy, life and rebirth; using butterflies as your design element for back piece tattoo is a way of making the statement that you find great joy in life. This stylized symbol of transformation and new stages in life would be perfect to mark a new beginning in your personal life. Perhaps you recently went through an emotionally trying time, having back piece tattoo designed to reflect your belief that you came out stronger and better for it, would be the perfect way to herald in a new phase in your life.



Choosing the right Butterfly for your Back Piece Tattoo

Butterflies have a wide variety in their selection of styles and colors to choose for your back piece tattoo. The color could play as important a role as the symbol of joy itself. When you choose the color for your butterfly back piece tattoo, remember that colors have meanings and could add depth to your personal choice of the butterfly.Yellow is also a symbol of joy, blue is tranquility and confidence, green is the color of renewal, and red of course for strength and power. Adding a butterfly that has hints of these powerful colors will only enhance the beauty and symbolism of the butterfly back piece tattoo you are looking for.


Butterfly Back Piece Tattoo for Man…

Using butterflies as the embellishments for other powerful ritual tattoos, only brings a sense of gentleness  to the more masculine back piece tattoo. For instance the bold forms and lines of tribal tattoos can be softened and made more delicate in appearance when butterflies are added to their curves and free-form designs. It will not make the graphic tattoos less appealing to have them enhanced by images of beauty.

Butterfly back piece tattoos are perfect as upper or lower back piece tattoo, and should be a part of your design element choice, if you are looking for a more feminine tattoo.

Cat Tattoo - Rick Basmagy

This is to date my most fav tattoo on my body.  I am a shop rat over at Artful Ink tattoo studios. It so happens I was at the shop one day and started singing the ” We are Siamese if you please ” song from Disneys own Lady and The Tramp. Well when you mix that with a extremely talented/creative tattoo artist named Kristen Goetz ( Artful Ink Tattoo Studios, NY ) you get a rad Siamese cat sporting one bad ass Fu Man Chu. And there you have it.

Coraline Jones Tattoo - Rick Basmagy


This is my Coraline Jones Tattoo done by One amazing Kelly Gelling at Artful Ink Tattoo Studios in NY.  I bare it on my left shoulder.  If you’ve seen this movie you’d know this is the scene where she crawls thru her tunnel and enters the perfect world ( well sorta ). I saw this in the theaters in 3D and the visuals along with the vivid colors blew my mind. Kelly is amazing with color tattoos and knew she would translate this perfectly onto my body. She is my tattoo artist and one of my closest friends.
