Butterfly tattoo designs are so popular nowadays. Butterflies can stand alone as a tattoo design. However, it is not uncommon to see a juxtaposition of additional elements. It may go with a skull, a cross, a dagger, a banner, or flowers, but the most popular are butterflies just like the following tattoo designs suggest.
