Just like butterfly tattoos, largartas tattoos are usually very colorful, and are usually done realistically. Their meaning is also directly linked to transformation, thanks to the life cycle of the caterpillar: larva, chrysalis, and butterfly.

The vast majority of crawling insects are considered creepy, disgusting, yet caterpillars receive positive reviews, being visually and symbolically attractive in terms of life changing.

In some cases a tattoo is made of the caterpillar from the story of Alice in Wonderland, with its pipe and air of wisdom.
