Until recently, I wasn’t exactly sold about butterfly tattoos. Partly because of their looks (I never wanted to have a huge spot of bright color on my body, TBH), but mostly because of their incredible popularity over the past decade (did the original doesn’t even exist anymore?).

So if you want a butterfly tattoo and feel stuck in this dilemma, let this roundup of minimalist and fun interpretations inspire your next design. Capture them screenshots, send them as a DM to your best friend, and get ready for your new ink.

An Itty-Bitty Butterfly Tattoo

This little guy is so cute it hurts, but not as much as it probably feels.

Rather than getting yourself a big tattoo (if you don’t like it), try a few smaller tattoos like this design of drooping petals and fluttering butterflies.

You don’t need the bright orange shades of this design to say this is a monarch butterfly. Case in point: this tattoo, which focuses on the classic butterfly shape, its black border and white speckled details.


Teeny-Weeny watercolor butterflies

If you’re not a fan of the traditional black outlines of a tattoo, you might like the organic look of this mixed butterfly that goes from pink to blue with no harsh lines.

An adorable, non-threatening butterfly design? It’s a way to make your middle finger less aggressive.

Balance an intricate design with a slight amount of shading and a lot of negative space.


A watercolor wing tattoo

The obvious choice (there’s nothing wrong with that! I’m just saying) is to go for an oversaturated color palette. But the intentionally faded shades of this tattoo are soft and unique, just like a butterfly.


One continuous line butterfly design

When you think of butterfly, you think of rich colors and an intricate design. This abstract silhouette doesn’t showcase any of those things but is still, in a way, recognizable. I will never understand how the tattoo artist drew this in a line, but props for them.
