Wing Tattoos can have inspirational or spiritual symbolism. Wings can be related to fairies, other flying spirits, and even demons. However, they are most associated with angels, in various sizes and shapes.
Wings associated with birds represent speed, elevation, freedom, and yearning.
Wings associated with angels are spiritual, symbolizing enlightenment, guidance, protection, and inspiration.
Wings associated with butterflies, dragonflies, fairies, and mythological creatures have an element of magic. As in alchemy and magic, wings can be transformational, allowing a person access to a previously unattainable state, signifying the desire for ?something greater? or ?something more?
Wings have always been linked to spirit, light, and the celestial realm. They can also mark the realization of the sublime, or at least an effort to transcend the human condition, as well as liberation or victory.
A wing tattoo can also mean moral purity, perfection, beauty and religion.
