The fallen angel is an important myth in ancient culture. The deep meaning of a fallen angel is the loss of innocence. It is a yearning to recover the feeling of divinity, or get to the core of innocence that is locked within. Tattoos depict the fallen angel in beautiful designs. A Fallen Angel Tattoo reconnects a person with the best part of themselves, inspiring them with the desire for flight.
What a fallen angel tells us is that we all have the wings, and though we may be in despair, the potential for flight is deep within. Many angel tattoos show a human like figure with his head buried in his arms. This figure holds a deep meaning, and tells us not to lose hope. The wings are powerful, the body is young and strong, and all we need is to fill ourselves with radiant energy of the soul, in order to fly. Figures with wings, are often depicted with background designs of flowers or fiery patterns. The decorative touch gives a grand look to fallen angel tattoos. The wings are often detailed in carefully intricate designs, with artistic shading giving a life like look. A fallen angel is often shown praying, with the huge wings folded on either side. The more examples are listed just below.
