Angel tattoos have been slowly but surely gaining popularity over the past few decades and it makes sense when you think about it – an angel tattoo is like having your guardian angel with you all the time. Angel designs are usually pictured with wings, although the Bible doesn't mention angels that have wings.
Sometimes people use an angel in a memorial tattoo to commemorate the death of a loved one. The most popular spot for angel wing designs is between the shoulders, the place where wings would naturally be if humans had them (I wish I had some!).

There is a wealth of angel images in the art of the middle ages and Renaissance and these can be adapted to tattoo images by a skilled artist. They are usually naked, have wings, look like a baby angel (usually male) and are sometimes pictured sitting on clouds with a trumpet or bow in their hands.
Typical fallen angel tattoos usually picture an angel with a menacing look, torn wings and sometimes horns, they look like a thug angel.

The Angel of Death is usually used as another name for the Grim Reaper, although Angels of Death are usually pictured with wings and the Grim Reaper is not. Getting an tattoo in memory of someone is a way of having them with you for the rest of your life.
