When you think of Angels, don't you just think "Tattoo?" No? Well, a lot of people do. And as many shapes and sizes that bodies come in, so do Angel Wing Tattoos.
A woman named, get this, Elayne Angel, was the first to have angel wings permanently placed on her person. It was 1986. Bob Roberts was the LA tattoo artist. And it took almost 20 hours over four sessions to complete the artistic endeavor.
Since then, the art of Angel wing Tats has truly taken flight.
The most common way to wear your wings: on your shoulder blades just as we imagine Angels wearing their wings.
They can give the feeling of being protected by a Guardian Angel...whose wings just happen to be tattooed on your back.
Images symbolize devotion, spirituality or enlightenment. And they mean different things to men and women.
According to Best-tattoo-design.com, Angel wings on a woman's back says she searches within and has purity of soul. On a man, it signals a deep respect for woman and a passionate lover.
The good news: Anything the artist can imagine, your body canvas can hold.
The bad news: If you change your mind, there's no clipping these wings.
So until next time: may your neighbors respect you, your troubles neglect you, your angels protect you and heaven accept you.
I'm Victoria and that's Guardian Angel TV for now.
