15 Tantalizing Dark Angel Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Sure, angel tattoos are extremely popular, and you could think we have already examined the topic from all angles.

But if you are not really keen on religious Christian tattoos yet enjoying the fantasy side of them and, indeed, if you are tired to see guardian angels of average quality, you should consider the dark side... Dark angels are not necessarily demons. Painters have representated angels in black for centuries. They can be angels of Death or War, ready to fight evil or helping soul to reach Paradise. Cemetery angels are also very dark, clad in black to show their grief, and mourning over tombs.

However, black is of course more common for fallen angels. Satan and the devils are supposed to be angels first. Fallen angels have succombed to the temptation of evil, often through lust. This is why dark angel tattoos are often depicting gorgeous female nudes. They were tempted, but now, they are tempting us... Indeed, if you are more attracted by men, sexy male angels are working too! If you are a fan of dark fantasy and horror tattoos, and if you are not afraid of the temptations, check those tantalizing dark angel tattoos...
