Butterfly tattoos are popular for a number of reasons, the most obvious one is the beauty associated with butterflies in general. Tattoos don't always have to have a deep meaning, sometimes we apply a tattoo quite simply because they look nice. As a result, butterfly tattoos are very popular among young ladies.
The trend for butterfly tattoos with young ladies has been picking up steam for a number of years, especially in western countries where the fashion of the day such as low cut hipster trousers, allows the wearer to show off an area of body art, usually a flower or butterfly tattoo. One famous celebrity who wears her own original butterfly tattoo design with pride is Drew Barrymore.
