Whether you consider yourself to be a pure, innocent person - or if you like the idea of being watched over by a benevolent celestial being - angels make for excellent angel tattoos designs.
Angels are a concept that has been floating around out there for centuries; the idea of them is comforting, which is why so many people are drawn to them.
You're a lot more likely to be called an angel when you're a female, though, since guys aren't usually given such nicknames. That's not to say that guy angels aren't out there - we've all seen the movie Michael, starring John Travolta - it's just that most people aren't going to refer to a man as "angel."
Popular Synonyms for Angels.
By exploring the various synonyms that are associated with the word "angel," you can get a better feel for everything that the term can encompass.

Some people use the terms "saint" and "angel" interchangeably; when most of us think of saints, though, we think of people like Mother Teresa. Although there are probably a few good reasons to get a Mother Teresa tat, they're definitely not something that you see every day.
