10 Best Moth Tattoo Ideas: Top Moth Tattoo Ideas

The humble Moth, always playing second fiddle to the flamboyant Butterfly. But, these nocturnal fairies are the stars to us, they are the perfect mix of beauty and darkness, and aesthetics and functionality. 

That is why we put together our list of the 10 Best Moth Tattoo Ideas. Because just like moths, tattoos have an edgy beauty of their own.

So, kick back on the porch, watch the moths fly in and out of the light, and enjoy our list of the 10 Best Moth Tattoo Ideas.


#10: Back of Arm Moth Tattoo

The back of the arm is a perfect place for a Moth tattoo. The Moth's wings contour to the shape of the arm. And, as a bonus, the next time you are chilling out on the porch on a warm summer's night, and a moth goes to land on the back of your arm. BOOM, he sees the tattooed Moth occupying the space, and it saves your from grabbing the back of your arm from feeling the tickle. Wow, that took a lot of words to write out. In my head that went a lot faster. Sorry for all the reading time, but I'm sure you get what I was trying to say. Right?

#9: Moth with Dagger Tattoo

Death by dagger... and beauty, with this Death Head Moth and dagger tattoo. This Moth tattoo is very cool, but I wonder what a life size common Moth tattoo with a scaled down dagger toothpick sized would look like?  Did somebody say "New tattoo idea!".

#7: Resting Moth Tattoo

Moths need rest too, that is why you should get a resting moth tattoo. Their wings don't have to always be flippy flapping, give them a break, not only is it considerate, it also makes for a nice tattoo.

The Moth hand tattoo is another location for a Moth tattoo that just works amazingly. Also, when you have a Moth tattoo on your hand, you can make it look like the Moth is flapping its wings opening and closing your hand. Giving you a go to "cool uncle or aunt trick" next time you are around your siblings kids.

#4: Polyphemus Moth Tattoo

The Polyphemus Moth, better known as "the Moth with eyes on the wings" makes an awesome Moth tattoo, even if you can't ever remember what kind of moth it is when people ask. Tattoos are made for talking about anyway, just look at them, they speak for themselves.

#3: Moth Below Knee Tattoo

Moth tattoos look great below the knee. The wings of the moth wrap around the shape of the knee, and almost appears to hold it up. As a bonus, if you wear mid-length shorts or a skirt, then the Moth tattoo will just be peaking out. This will create a sense of wonder in the tattoo viewers mind... "What happens after that moth tattoo?", "Is there multiple Moth tattoos under their garment, or just the one?",  "Can they hear me talking right now, or is it just in my head?", "Are Moths just scary Butterflies?".
