Butterfly tattoos

There is something about butterfly tattoos that makes them really special and if you landed on this website I bet you agree with me. It is not that they’re just cute, they have that uplifting and spiritual feeling about them. It encompasses the celebration of ongoing change and metamorphoses towards ever greater perfection. The image of butterfly is very powerful in Greek mythology. I bet you did not know that in Hellenic world the same word referred both to the soul and butterfly.
