Angel tattoos (as well as other religious tattoos and christian tattoos) have been slowly but surely gaining popularity over the past few decades and it makes sense when you think about it – if you get an angel tattoo, it’s like having your guardian angel with you all the time.

The word angel comes from the Greek word aggelo, which means to pass along something new or to announce something. The word aggelos stands for the God Acolytes.

Angels are a link between heaven and earth. Angels belong to Judaist, Christian and Islamic traditions.

According to the Bible and the Koran, angels have the following tasks:

* Bring messages to the people, warn them or bring the word of God.
* Worship God.
* Angels serve and protect humans.
* They fight evil.
* They carry out God’s orders (they do have a free will though, they can choose to obey or disobey, just like humans).
* Angels guard heaven and hell.
* They keep track of all deeds done by every human being.

Angel tattoo designs are usually pictured with wings, although the Bible doesn’t mention angels that have wings. The confusion comes from another kind of supernatural beings mentioned in the bible, called cherubs. So the kind of angel tattoos that are so popular nowadays are actually cherub tattoos (see further).

Angel tattoos can be large or small, some designs are very large – covering the back for instance.

Often, angel tattoo designs are taken from classic art. 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 tattoo artist.
