They’re tiny, unassumingly straightforward yet pulsatingly cool! These matching angel wings wrist tattoos are flightless wonders. They are the perfect pieces to get this list off the ground as they’re not that ornate or intricate but they’re every bit as impressive as their flashy counterparts. The tattoos themselves are relatively plain–mainly composed of borders and shading but they are done so with a measured and calibrated attention to detail so as not to sully the modesty or purity of the design. That requires not only skill but incredible control and discipline on the artist’s part. These angel wings tattoos are artistic renderings of self-restraint and for that, they deserve a commencement spot on the list.
2.Tiny Angel Wings
Pink may be lovely but I love this cute angel wings tattoo better. It’s not that much to look at really as far as the design is concerned but what it lacks in artistic complexity, it more than makes up for its superb placement. And if you know me or if you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll recognize that for me, placement is everything. And because your skin is prime real estate in the art world, the first and most important thing to remember when putting ink to skin is location, location, location. This, right here is a prime example of a well-placed, perfectly situated tattoo. Any lower or higher and it’s an eyesore.

I just love tiny angel wing tattoos because not only are they pleasant to look at; they also have modest intentions and connotations. It’s as if the wearer consciously chose a small wing design to signify that he/she is still growing his/her own wings and that this type of tattoo, along with its implications, should be earned and not given. Case in point: This cutely sweet mono angel wing back tattoo. It’s very telling as much as it is undeniably pretty. Most importantly, it looks as if it was really intended to be there–like the wearer really deserved to have it and it really shows. A cutesy mono angel wing tattoo–modesty and beauty seamlessly combined in one unassuming piece. Truly a sight ti behold!

You know it’s true what they say: “Simplicity is beauty.” This single angel wing arm tattoo is beautiful in every sense of the word. The line work is clean and crisp. The shading and color combination are just impeccable while the placement is just apt. There’s nothing flashy or fancy about this piece of art but it just soars. Sometimes, less is more and this single angel wing tattoo is a perfect example of this concept or approach. Having said that, everything else goes well with the golden jewelry. It doesn’t compete with it, but rather, it accentuates it–a piece of art that is perfectly beautiful in its simplicity.
5.Wing in Ankle

It’s a black and grey piece that doesn’t disappoint; like a gift that gives on giving. It’s tiny but it’s impressive and stunning in its own little way. You just can’t go wrong with it. Just look at the bold and solid borders and the superb shading; it’s a technical and stylistic masterpiece. Ankle tattoos are kinda tricky because if you don’t do it right, they become cheesy and sometimes unnecessary. But if they’re done really well, they become unforgettable pieces of art that gets better with time. And this angel wing, black and grey tattoo right here, is a timeless masterpiece.
6.Angel Wing Initials

This is a terrific angel wing tattoo not just because it is very well-done from a technical standpoint but also because it takes on a special meaning via strategically placed initials. I especially like the ray or beam effect on top of the initials as it brings special focus to them like the piece is especially dedicated to someone dear to the wearer. It is just a thoughtful and magnificent tattoo whichever way you look at it. Plus the fact that it’s placed in the arm; an area that is very hard to miss, this piece is a real head turner.
7.Hip of an Angel

As far as hip tattoo goes, this one takes the cake! I don’t really know where to begin to describe how marvelous this angel wing tattoo is but I’ll try anyway so indulge me. The wing is very intricate and purposeful. The placement is suggestively fascinating as if leading you to something really amazing–a dark abyss with unlimited possibilities. And the smudges, yes those smudges perfectly compliment the main piece as they draw your eyes and attention to it and before you know it, you’re mesmerized. If only this hip angel wing tattoo could talk, what a wonderful tale it would’ve told!

OK this one is inexplicable. Inexplicable because of all places to take the necessary angel wing tattoo selfie, why the bathroom? Perhaps the bedroom is not available? Well I guess that’s where ‘Fallen’ angels love to hang out; in the hallowed walls of the bathroom! Alright so enough of the selfie location. Let’s talk about the tattoo itself. This back piece angel wing tattoo is magnificently done. The design is ornate yet sharply defined and aptly positioned. The element that makes this tattoo special however, is the well-intentioned tramp stamp. With it, it’s really not that hard to ‘fall’ in love with this tattoo.
9.Wings of Cuteness

This angel wing tattoo is adorably cute! The way it flows at the back and how it’s colored is really something worth pointing out because although it’s not anatomically accurate, the piece is just as impressive if not more striking than its more accurate counterparts. This only proves that in art and especially in tattoos, perfection is not mandatory. Who needs perfection anyway? Perfection is boring. This is a cutesy rendition of a very popular tattoo design and it’s really delightful to watch. Sometimes, all you need is a little bit of imagination and an open mind to go against the norm and still produce something worthwhile—like this angel wing tattoo.

This is yet another tiny statement piece that works. Why? Because it’s well-conceived, beautifully crafted and appropriately placed. What’s not to love really? Just look at the details of this angel wing tattoo. They are intricate yet precisely done. The line work is elegant and the shading is just right. It really takes a great artist to do this angel wing tattoo and perhaps a mindful skin or wearer because getting a tattoo is a collaborative process. The artist can only do so much and until the skin’s inputs are being taken into consideration, only a sub-par piece would come out of it. Not this tattoo though as this is technically and symbolically superb.

Here’s a dose of reality for you: Hips and angel wing tattoos go very well together like milk and honey, bread and butter or peanut butter and jelly. I don’t know but this picture right here makes me hungry. Maybe because these two are my favorite things in this world. I’m talking about hips and angel wing tattoos. They’re just a perfect pair, like a match made in heaven–for me at least. Don’t get me wrong, the tattoo in question is a technical and stylistic standout but when it’s especially placed in the hips, it really mesmerizes me. I can look and talk about this for hours on end but I or you don’t have all day as there are plenty more pieces to discuss so in a nutshell, this angel wing tattoo is beautifully crafted on a beautifully-shaped body—plain and simple.

This shoulder piece is ethereal, a black and grey tattoo that can do no wrong. It’s meticulous, intricate and excellently crafted with deft and precision. There are no wasted line or a detail that’s out of place. Everything flows in unison like a magnificently crafted song. Just looking at it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside and it makes me wanna hum with glee. This angel wing tattoo just conjures happy thoughts and it takes you to a special place where smiles come to life and dreams come true. There’s just no two ways about it, this angel wing tattoo is ethereally magnificent.
This is a back piece that glows even without the UV light because for one thing, this is very innovative and secondly, it’s well-executed. I don’t want to sound cheesy but the word ‘angelic’ came to mind when I first saw this–a white, fluffy piece of art that soars. If angels could be tattoo artists, I think this is the first piece that they’d come up with and it makes so much sense because it’s excellent yet subtle, beautiful yet nuanced. I’d love to have this piece in the future but in the meantime, I’ll just have to take a look at this and enjoy it for a while.

This is a very well-positioned angel wing tattoo. The way that it hugs the shoulder and how the tip ends at the upper arm is very nifty. The wing itself is also technically excellent; the attention to detail, consistency and overall quality of the piece is something to admire and be inspired with. In fact, the only thing that’s missing in this exceptional piece is another exceptionally done wing at the other shoulder to complete the look and feel of an angel. It’s not to say that this single wing tattoo can’t stand on its own–it really does–but a duplicate, complimentary piece at the other side would take this piece to a whole new level of excellence.

Who says tough guys don’t like angel wing tattoos? Here’s exhibit A to dispel that notion. This excellent shoulder piece is not just cool, it is also versatile enough to look good on any skin–provided that it’s done right. And this angel wing tattoo is exquisitely done as if it belongs to the wearer, like it’s meant to be there and is part of his whole being. Well in a way it already is. For whatever reason this guy chooses to have this piece of art inked into his body, I think it’s more than justifiable as it doesn’t make him look any less of a man. Kudos to you Sir!
16.On the Wings of Vanity

‘V’ for vanity. Yup, this guy may look like a cookie-cutter Calvin Klein model but there’s nothing ordinary about his angel wing tattoo. It is dramatic as much as it is intricately detailed. Never mind the almost Zoolander-like squint. Just take the tattoo for what it is–an exquisitely done, aptly placed and perfectly fitting angel wing tattoo. Aside from the masterful job the artist has done as far as the shading is concerned, the line work is just out of sight! Just clean, crisp and pronounced borders. But don’t take my word for it. Just take a gander at this piece and decide for yourself.

What’s better than an excellently done angel wing tattoo? Nothing except this. A figure forming and enhancing angel wing tattoo that is. How can you not possibly like this? This is beauty and grace personified! From top to bottom, this piece of art just exudes artistry, charm and elegance. When I see something like this, I just pause and take a moment to revel in the view. It’s a tattoo for the senses and you’d be hard-pressed to find something better or more mesmerizing than this one. If you can’t be impressed by this, then you’re a sad human being. I kid of course!
