Ladybug Tattoos

Most cultures around the world view ladybugs as signs of good luck or good health. Therefore, it is only natural for ladybug tattoos to be a popular tattoo choice for those seeking a lifetime of good fortune and well being. In France, ladybugs are believed to relieve ailments of the people they land on, so ladybug body art may be the perfect choice for those fighting long-term illnesses or anyone seeking a lifetime of wellness. Although ladybug tattoos are most commonly requested by women, more and more men, such as actor Ryan Phillipe (ladybug tattoo on right foot), are choosing them as fashion statements as well.

Sizes of Ladybug Tattoos
Most ladybug tattoos are drawn as small pieces of body art—similar to the sizes they are found in nature. This compact sizing makes ladybug tattoos extremely versatile when choosing where to place them. Appearing on wrists, feet, bikini lines and even hidden behind ears, ladybug tattoos can practically be placed anywhere on the body. For those seeking larger tattoos, many of today’s professionally designed flash sheets feature flower and vine tattoos that incorporate ladybugs into the design scheme to enhance the charm and character of each piece. Larger ladybug tattoos can also be found in the form of armbands and lower back pieces.

Ladybug Myths
There are many myths surrounding ladybugs that have developed around the globe. For example, it is believed that if one holds a ladybug while making a wish, then good fortune will come from the direction in which the ladybug flies away. In Belgium, if a ladybug is seen crawling across a young girl’s hand, it is said she will be married within a year’s time while the Japanese see ladybugs as symbols of lovers. In Norway, if both a man and woman spot a ladybug at the same time, then a promising romance is sure to spark between them.

In past times, children in Switzerland believed they were delivered to their parents by ladybugs, not storks. In Brussels, the number of black spots on a ladybug that one held would determine the number of children they would have later in life. British farmers thought that an abundance of ladybugs in the spring would be a prediction for a plentiful harvest while pioneers thought it a good omen if a ladybug was found in their log cabin during the winter months. Therefore, ladybug tattoos can represent a number of different meanings.

General Facts About Ladybugs
Ladybugs are actually beetles that hibernate, feeding on their own stored fat until the spring. Only when temperatures outside reach above fifty-five degrees Fahrenheit will ladybugs fly, flapping their wings up to eighty-five times per second. Appearing in a variety of colors, ladybugs can be seen in hues of red, orange, pink, yellow and black and can have zero to twenty spots. These bright colors are visual warning signs to their predators; however, if a predator does attack, ladybugs will secrete blood from their leg joints that is both foul-smelling and yellow to deter their attackers.
