Tattoos are the oldest form of body art, known to man. They are created by injecting bio-ink under the dermis layer of the skin. They are permanent until the ink is removed by surgery. The types and variants of tattoos have been increasing with time, from the initial tribal art tattoos to the current trend of getting the photograph of a loved one or a pet tattooed on your body. From monochrome tattoos to colored ones, to 3D art and even UV tattoos that glow in the dark, tattoos have come a long way to become popular with the masses.
Ladybug Tattoo Designs:
Ladybugs or ladybirds (as they are called by the British) belong to the family of beetles called Coccinellidae. They come in shades of yellow, orange or red and have tiny black polka dots on top of these colors. They are rather small in size and are often found around the brilliant hues of forest flowers. They are non-poisonous and considered useful as they feed on smaller insects and keep their population down. However, when they breed and multiply, their swarms can cause serious damage to crops. Because of their interesting hues, they have been adapted into cartoons. Here are some interesting Ladybug Tattoo Designs-
