Scouting for some new charming tattoos to add to your body canvas? Then welcome aboard! Here’s a full list of enchanting and bewitching Fairy Tattoo ideas you can own. Because sometimes you need a little magic in your life.

Fairies are not new to us anymore.  We all learned to love these cute little mythical creatures — from the renowned Bibbidi Bobbidi Boop of Cinderella’s fairy godmother to the sparkling pixie dust of Tinkerbell. Fashion-wise, fairies are very popular among women with their beautiful wings and pixies. These fairies are generally known as little creatures that bring good luck and lots of magic.

However, fairies are more than just childhood character that spread happiness and does all the good stuff. Fairy, derived from Old French term faierie, literally means a woman who is skilled in magic and enchantment. They are mythical creatures with outstanding wings that used to fly around and enchant human beings and creature.

Today, fairies are just a melancholy to our childhood that we all used to love and adore. They remind us that despite the dark and foggy reality in front of us, there are still colorful and sparkling creatures ready to enlighten our world. Fairies remind us that we can still enjoy our vibrant youth and believe in happy ever after.

Behold and be enchanted with these Fairy Tattoo ideas

1. Sunflower Fairy Tattoo

Sing with me in the chant of Cinderella’s fairy godmother during her transformation…

“Salagadoola mechicka boola
Put them together and what have you got
A pretty sunflower fairy tattoo”

Okay, maybe the last line wasn’t in the original lyrics. But who cares? As long as it rhymes, right?

Kidding aside, this tattoo idea brings out a youthful and innocent vibe with the great color palette choices and intricately drawn figure. Perfect for your youthful and vibrant goals.


2. Of shadows and silhouettes.

Youthfulness is not only personified with colossal drawing and warm colors. Sometimes, a tiny monotoned fairy tattoo is enough to show one’s vibrancy. Exhibit A.



3. Fairy with her Dust and Wings

Remember number 2? Youthfulness isn’t all about colors and shapes. We can still show our playfulness with a simple yet enticing fairy tattoo like this one. Exhibit B.



4. Romeo and Juliet Fairy Tattoo

What’s good about fairy tattoos is that you can freely innovate and still be able to convey your message. This fairy tattoo is one of the many examples that your skin is a good canvas to show love and youthfulness. What’s enticing about this design is that it highlights love yet also depicts freedom and individuality at the same time.




5. Betty Boop Fairy Tattoo

This fairy tattoo idea shows that Betty Boop can rock any attire! I mean, TOTALLY ROCK. We all know betty boop with her hourglass body [that all girls die for] and her red body fitting dress. But who knew she would also rock this fairy outfit? This is just totally off the bat yet surprisingly good at the same time.

This was simply drawn to perfection. Unlike any other fairy tattoos, this fairy back tattoo was drawn rather simple and plain yet gives off an enticing and very interesting vibe. This tattoo idea beams off innocence and femininity.



7. BElieve in YOUrself fairy tattoo

Knowing what we want is simple. Getting it is the hardest part. Every day we face trials and obstacles that it becomes harder for us to reach our dreams. Sometimes, we needed a little push and reminder that we can do it and that we are able and capable. Hence, this fairy wrist tattoo idea is a good motivational push for us to strive harder every day. It’s also placed in a spot wherein we can easily see it.



8. Animated Fairy Back Tattoo

Fairies are iconic with strokes and butterflies. In Japanese Animes, we often see fairies with butterfly wings. This tattoo idea is best suitable for those anime fanatics [like me] who find passion with animations and stuff. fairy-tattoo-designs-11


9. Mr. Moon and Mr. Fairy

Oddly, this fairy tattoo is a depiction of a male fairy. Often we see fairies as long-haired-petite-and-big-wings women who are able to fly and spread pixies. This tattoo idea is surprisingly good with its concept of peace and tranquility. The ultimate highlight of this is the male fairy who is comforted by the moon. This is perfect for all genders!

Ever played Defense of the Ancient (DotA)? Familiar with the ice princess hero crystal maiden? Yup, I guess that’s where this fairy tattoo is inspired. It’s refreshing to see another color introduction to fairy designs. We often see fairies dressed in green, but hey, blue also works!fairy-tattoo-designs-13


11. Tremendous Back Vines and Fairy Tattoo

Who would have thought fairies would go well with vines as well? Vines are usually associated with flowers and roses and it’s very seldom only that we see other elements look good with it. This art is one of the great examples that fairies and vines can be versatile too. The simplicity in this one draws out the elegance and beauty of the art itself. Indeed, the responsible artist in this is very talented.



12. Of life and death

Fairies are usually associated with life and vibrancy. But this one is dark. Dark in a unique and interesting way. We have a fairy [representing life and color] while holding a skull [that emanates death and afterlife]. The contrasts of both elements (the fairy and the skull) surprisingly balance each other out. Both bring a vibe that we seldom feel and see in other tattoos.



13. Full upper back fairy tattoo

This tattoo idea is unique in every angle and every way. The contrast of the warm and dark colors between both scapula having a gothic fairy in the middle is the ultimate highlight of this art.



14. Missing Link Fairy Tattoo

We often connote beauty with perfection and completion. However, who would have thought that perfection sometimes comes when something is blatantly missing? This fairy tattoo idea is a perfect expression of one’s wholeness out of its own emptiness.


15. Fairy and Bird Tattoo

Fairies usually don’t need rides. They have big and magnificent wings for that purpose. However, this classically drawn fairy and bird tattoo is an example that fairies can be very versatile with anything. This tattoo idea brings off a fragile yet flexible aura that may resemble the owner or holder.



16. of Blacks and Lines Fairy Tattoo

Simplicity is beauty, they say. Cliché but hey, it’s true. Exhibit A. The simplicity of this tattoo idea is the ultimate highlight of the whole art. It’s simple yet classic and expressive in many angles. Perfect for your wrist, or in this case, your feet.



17. Gender Neutral Fairy Tattoo

Fairies are usually incorporated among girls and their femininity. Surreal thing is, this tattoo idea can also be worn by any gender of any choice.



18. Fairies and Pixies Tattoo

Fairies are well-known for their outstanding wings and sparkling pixie dusts. Lo and behold, those two important elements are visible in one tattoo art. This one is definitely a must get, especially to those who are fond of sparkling things.



19. Alluring Fairy Tattoo 

Fairies, like Tinkerbell, are popular for being cute in a non-sensual way. But who says fairies can’t be attractive in an alluring way? This fairy tattoo idea is perfect for people, especially women, who have a bold and appealing character


20. Simplicity is Beauty

Sometimes, less is more. A great beauty can be revealed in monochrome and simplicity. This tattoo idea highlights the beauty of the wings and less on the fairy herself.



21. A Blast of Colors

This is the complete opposite of the previous post. Here we have a very strategically colored fairy tattoo in a manner that all colors beautifully contemplates the art itself. This tattoo idea is perfect for you gals out there who have a bubbly and upbeat personality.




22. Of Fairy, Dandelions, and Freedom

Doves often connote freedom and peace. Aside from its aesthetic surface, the art also provides an evocative meaning of prison and freedom – a person caged from external and internal circumstances now blowing out liberty and amity.


23. Beyond Colors and Description

Sometimes, the art speaks for itself. No words, no description, no explanation needed – just pure vision and emotions.



24. Pastel Colored Fairy Tattoo

Nothing is more feminine than a fairy colored in cool pastel pantones. This color mishmash idea brings out the cute and adorable little girl in you.


25. Silhouette Fairy Tattoo

The motion in this tattoo idea is both graceful and supple at the same time – it seems as if her magic unleashes within her. This will be a great tattoo idea if placed on the wrist on arm. The way that beautiful purple magic swirls flow so graciously will surely blend well with skin canvas.


26.Ballerina Fairy Tattoo

This is one of the most graceful tattoos you could ever put in your scapula. Who would not love a fairy dancing ballet so effortlessly? A motion put action to a 2D art. When motion, colors, lines, and shapes are combined, one very charming art is created.


27. Fairies alter ego

Not all fairies are cute and fancy. Sometimes, they are creepy and dark without wings and dust. If you may ask, “is this even a fairy?” Then I say YES. Fairies, originally, a woman skilled in magic, and who knew the power and virtue of words, of stones, and of herbs.



28. Realistically Drawn Fairy Tattoo

I don’t know much, but one thing I know — that this fairy tattoo art is one of the most realistically drawn fairy face ever. One glance is enough to captivate your right brain and release hormones that trigger awe and amusement. This can only be drawn by a well experienced and very talented artist.


29. Tranquil Fairy Tattoo

This pale, subtle, and light-colored fairy tattoo gives off a calm and soothing feeling. There is just something to the way the fairy was drawn and colored. Everything about this reminds us of inner peace on a gloomy day under a cherry blossom tree. This would be perfect for calm and timid girls who would like to showcase their individuality.


30. Watercolor Fairy Tattoo

Perfection is good but sometimes it can be boring. Crazy-outside-the-box ideas often times are most effective in catching interests. Said concept is evident in this fairy tattoo. We often see arts with colors within range, it is seldom that you see an art with blasted colors and still look beautiful.


31. Gothic Fairy Tattoo

Are you a 90s baby? Or someone who was born before and was able to witness goth and emo era? Then this fairy tattoo idea would be a lot familiar to you. In the early 2000s, the goth concept became a widespread and characters with dark colors and sad aura was famous.



32. Faith, Trust… and Pixie Dust

I am sure you are familiar with Peter Pan. I mean, who isn’t? Peter Pan is a well-loved Disney movie with Peter Pan, Wendy, lost boys, and of course, Tinkerbell. Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust are three of the main ingredients for you to fly. When I was still a kid, I thought those were just the ingredients for me to fly. As I grew older, I realized that they are not just ingredients —  they are everyday essentials. We already know faith and trust. But what about pixie dust? Yes, pixie dust isn’t real. They are just a product of kid’s imagination and creative mind. But that’s exactly the point. In life, we don’t always need to follow the pattern and remain on the system. We need a little creativity and lot of imagination for us to become greater and achieve even something bigger.




33. Neck Fairy Tatoo

The neck is perhaps one of the most visible parts of the entire human body.  What’s good about neck tattoo is that it can easily be visible or easily hidden (for girls) whatever the mood or occasion is.



34.Monochromatic Scapula Fairy Tattoo

The emotion in this fairy tattoo art is really vivid and visible. You can immediately feel at a glance. The artist conveyed an immediate emotion making it the highlight of the whole tattoo idea. The choice of color and pantones is really a well-done job since monochrome is popular nowadays.



35. Magical Fairy Tattoo

Another example of monochromatic idea producing one elegant looking anklet tattoo. The simplicity of one shaded tattoo, depicting shadows and emboss, is what makes it best for beginner tattoo enthusiasts. The simplicity of this fairy tattoo idea gives off elegance, charm, and femininity all at the same time.


36. Magical Fairy Tattoo

Another example of monochromatic idea producing one elegant looking anklet tattoo.

37. Soporific Fairy Tattoo

Colors bring life yet, sometimes, uninflected shades bring emotions and artistry. This is one of the greatest examples how a simple monotonous art brings so many feelings and sentiments.



38. Pixie Dust Name Tattoo

I know you have seen Peter Pan the movie, because if you haven’t yet, then I’m going to judge you and your taste. Kidding aside, in Peter Pan, we know that pixie dust create objects, lights, sparks, and anything magical — including flying. One thing that hasn’t crossed my mind is its ability to carve out a name. This tattoo idea brings out the best and the charm in a pixie dust. This is a go-to tattoo idea especially to those girls who would love to put their name to their body, or just someone who would love to remember their loved ones.


39. Full Back Fairy Tattoo

Back tattoos are sexy. I repeat, back tattoos are sexy. Placing is one of the most important thing when considering inking. We don’t just rely on the artistry skills of the tattoo guy, we also consider the canvas. Canvas brings life and motion to the art itself. Just look at this exhibit and focus on how the curves of this lady brings motion to this 2D art.


40. Realistic Fairy Tattoo

Will you just look at how overly realistic this tattoo was drawn? I mean, it is as if you are looking at a real girl with great wings! This is truly mindblowing and astonishing as we only often see 2D tattoos. This is something that a great artist would do. Aside from art choice and canvas, one of the most basic things a tattoo enthusiast should consider is the ability of his or her tattoo artist.



41. The Fairy and The Dark Side of the Moon

This tattoo idea is best for people who appreciate the beauty of darkness. We generally perceive fairies as colorful and vibrant, seldom we see the beauty beneath their shadows and silhouette. This is a great example that even in the saddest and vibrant-less colors, the beauty of the art itself is emphasized. Remember, the moon has two sides — the one who brings light to the dark world and the one who hides yet is calm.


42. Ankle Fairy Tattoo

People, girls especially, love the simplicity of the ankle tattoo. They are small, simple, yet elegant and chic. And that is the beauty of the ankle tattoos — they are small yet terrible. They can easily be covered, yet when unveiled, they emit a stylish aura especially for the one wearing it. Friendly tip: ankle is a great spot for you to place your tattoo. However, do not go overboard with the size and colors. They are best effective when they are simple and small.




43. Magical Tinkerbell Tattoo

Everybody loves Tinkerbell and her cheerful attitude. She is best loved among children, and children at heart (like me), who once dreamt of flying and throwing pixie dust here and there. This Tinkerbell tattoo is appealing in all aspect. First, it is Tinkerbell. Case closed. Second, it has pixie dust, like duh! But lastly, the color choice. I love how it was patterned to the color of the galaxy. It just brings color and vibrancy to the pixies and Tinkerbell herself. So relive your youth and have faith, trust, and pixie dust!



44. Chic Fairy Tattoo

Nothing speaks more of a youthful girl than pink with blue hues. I am not stereotyping, or whatever, this is just a common knowledge that most of the young girls like blue, purple, and pink. How do I know? Because I do too! Kidding aside, this tattoo idea is great for young ladies out there, or young lady (at heart) who would like to relive their youth or express their youthfulness.


45. Of Shapes and Angles

Do you love both fairies and geometry? Worry no more. Here’s a perfect design just for you. However, if you really want to have this kind of tattoo, make sure that you first search for a talented tattoo artist. Geometric and symmetrical tattoo ideas are not your everyday tatoo. This involves great skill and certain degree of perfection.


46. Wings and Fairy

Fairies are well loved due to their charm and sophisticated wings. Just like how flying has three basic ingredients (faith, trust, and pixie dust), great tattoo also has three main elements — Placing, Skill, and Patience. Fairies are best emphasized with great color combination in greatly drawn wings, hence, the Skill. You need to assess the skill of your tattoo artist because tattoos are lifetime. That will be forever placed in your skin, unless you do some laser thing. Placing — because your canvas creates motion to your tattoo. A tattoo, no matter how good it is, when placed in a bad area becomes unappealable. Placing is important. Patience — because you don’t want to speed up the process of your the art. Patience is a virtue. All good things come to those who wait.



47. Sitting Fairy Tatto

Fairy and moon, when combined, connotes a feminine and mystical feature. The fairy, being the obvious centerpiece of this tattoo art, release peace and comfort while looking mischievous and vibrant. Weird in all sense, but that is the beauty of an art. Sometimes, we get an unexplainable feeling with unexplainable features.



48. Bianca and Her Tinkerbell Fairy Tatto

Tinkerbell is the most classical fairy idea ever. Whenever we think of fairies, the first thing that comes to mind is Tinkerbell. No wonder she is greatly known among little girls and women. Her tiny hourglass body, blonde hair, cute wings, and pixies greatly attract almost everyone. For your next tattoo idea, instead of puttingTinkerbell’ss name beneath her image, why not put your name instead? This will be a great tattoo idea as it connotes that one, like Bianca, can be as cute and mischievous like Tinkerbell.




49. Wrist Fairy Tatto

Personally, I think that the wrist is the most elegant place to put your tattoo. Just like how we wear bracelets and watches, tattoos can greatly embrace our wrist area with arts and craft. However, be wary of your enthusiasm when putting ink in your wrist area. Just like this tattoo idea, wrist tattoos are best when they are simple, small, and maybe a little muted. Just imagine how much you hate wearing too much shining and sparkling bracelets in your wrists, that is thee same with absurd and excessive tattoos.



50. Simple Ankle Fairy Tatto

A little goes a long way. A simple and muted tattoo indeed attracts a lot of attention. There is pure beauty in clean and uncomplicated art. Sometimes, in less, there is more. You also would not want to overdo it, especially when placing tattoo in the ankle. Just like how ridiculous it would look on your wrist, the same goes with your ankle. Again, a reminder: less is more.
