Black & Grey Ink Butterfly Tattoos | TattooBlend

Probably the most popular first—and sometimes only—tattoo many women find themselves owning, the butterfly has long been a popular tattoo choice among the female gender for its natural beauty. That’s not to say they’re only for women though. Some of the best and most awe-inspiring butterfly tattoos floating around have been done on men.

The first thing that usually comes to mind you when think “butterfly” is usually a colorful Monarch floating effortlessly with the breeze on a sunny spring day. And granted most butterfly tattoos are indeed colorful designs but you’ll soon see that colorless black and grey ink versions can be just as breathtaking. Here are a few of our favorites.

It ain’t much but it’s a start.
