The awe-inspiring image of angels has captivated people throughout time. Since the mythology of angels was set in place, artists, poets and writers have all been trying to capture their essence, often with striking results. The part of the angel that looks human is flawless, but it still looks human, which is commonplace, no matter how smooth and clean it may appear to be. What really makes the angel look so breathtaking are its wings.
Angel wings are typically illustrated in a bird-like fashion and this is the design people tend to use when getting angel wing tattoos. Unlike demon wings, which resemble the wings of a bat, angel wings are broad and feathery. The most common and logical place for people to get tattoos of angelic wings is the back. Done in a realistic style, it can appear as though the tattooed individual has sprouted wings of their own.
