Devil Angel Tattoo Design Ideas

There are many reasons why someone would choose a devil angel tattoo design. Some want a tattoo that represents the struggle between good and evil. Others like the idea that good and bad come together in one package. Even others think devils and angels are sexy and want to put them together in a tattoo.

No matter what reason you have for choosing a devil angel tattoo design, here are some ideas:

Common meanings of devil angel tattoo designs.

Angels are often considered to be protectors. They guide the lost, rescue those in danger, and fight against evil and sin. On the opposite side are fallen angels, of which are often called “demons” or “devil.” They take on different meanings. Fallen angels represent a lust for power or sex. They can also express fear, guilt, loss, pain, doubt, or loneliness. Put them together, and you could have a fantastic devil angel tattoo design that stresses how we all have a little bit of both inside us.

This is the concept often seen in artwork. Create a person, their look, facial expression, position(are they sitting or standing?). It can be male or female, whatever you decide. They can be realistic looking, or cartoon like anime. They can be sexy, or cute. Just choose what you love best. Then take that character you created and turn them into an angel. Give them beautiful wings, pretty clothes, a halo, harp, etc. That will be one tattoo. Then take that same character and make them a devil. Make the clothing more goth-like, darken the hair, add horns and pitchfork, etc. That will be tattoo number 2.

The tattoos should be placed opposite each other on your body, as if they are mirrored images. One on each wrist, for example. One on each shoulder blade, is another. This devil angel tattoo shows one person, but two sides to their personality.

This is a cute devil angel idea and a personal favorite. Again, this tattoo design can be changed to fit your personality. Create a devil that is realistic, cute, anime, etc. Dress him/her how you want, it is entirely up to you. Bring your personality to how the devil looks. Just make sure the devil has horns. Then place “fake” wings on the devil. They could be paper wings, cut out and colored. Place a pair of scissors in the devil’s hand. The sides could be feathered, but have part of them uncovered, with wires showing through. In the devil’s hands should be glue and feathers.

The final touch for this devil angel tattoo would be of the “angel” smirking.

Devil angel tattoo based on the battle between good and evil. The battle between good and evil can be taken literally if you follow the Bible. It can also be taken figuratively, in that we all fight good and evil within ourselves. Either way, you can create an amazing devil angel tattoo design while keeping this idea in mind.

For full effect, they should be realistic looking. The angel should be dressed beautiful, with flowing hair, glowing halo, and wings that spread out wide. In the angel’s hand should be a giant sword, as the angel Michael is often depicted with one. Although, your angel can be female, never forget that. The devil should be darker. Give the devil dark hair, and put him/her in leather armor. If you want to go the stereotype route, having the devil fight with a pitchfork, but a halberd is similar and would have a more significant effect in the devil angel tattoo design. Just make sure the devil has horns, and it will be recognized.

Place them both in battle stances, weapons ready, or clanging together. If you choose, there could already be a winner in this fight. The loser upon the ground, with the winner’s weapon pointed at them. However, as this is a seemingly endless battle, you can have no winner.

Devil angel tattoo design based on Lucifer. Yes, Lucifer.

We all know him as the angel who wanted to rule heaven. He was cast out because of his lust for power, and it is believed that he became Satan, or the devil. Why not create a devil angel tattoo design depicting the angel that began it all, and that brought us the devil and evil?

Lucifer should look dark and evil. But he should also be beautiful because he was once an angel. Make sure he is strong, too. Now, Lucifer’s back should be at least slightly, if not all the way, turned to face anyone looking at your tattoo. On his bare back should be the stubs of what were once wings. Have a few feathers fallen around his bare feet. If your Lucifer is regretful about his decision, you could have him on his knees praying. If he is looking for revenge and control, put a sword in his hand. So you want to make him more modern, give him a gun, or two, instead. Finally, place those stereotypical horns on his head to help stress that this is Lucifer, the angel that is now the devil. This makes for a very philosophical devil angel tattoo design idea.
