Pixie Fairydust Tattoo Ideas

Tattoos express the personality, passions and aesthetic preferences of the people whose bodies they adorn. Whether you are a small, pixie-like person, have a deep love for all things fairy-related or are looking for a cute, playful tattoo subject, a pixie and fairy dust tattoo may help blow a little magic into your life.

Pixie Blowing Dust

Commission a tattoo showing a pixie perched on a toadstool, blowing pixie dust out of one hand held flat. Customise this tattoo by choosing the style and look of the pixie, the size, type and colouring of the mushroom and the size and placement of the tattoo. You could design the fairy in a Pre-Raphaelite style, or you could go with a minimalist style that evokes a comic book, with a black-haired, dark-eyed gothic fairy atop a cobweb-covered purple mushroom.

Old-Fashioned Pixie

Ask the tattoo artist to give you a tattoo of a black and white, realistic-style pixie on a horizontal part of your body, like the shoulder blade or the lower back. Position the pixie in a seductive yet mischievous supine position with one hand held out---a hand full of brightly coloured stars and specks representing fairy dust. Give the pixie a vintage hairdo, like a 1940s Veronica Lake 'do featuring long, gently wavy hair that falls across one eye, covering it completely. Her wings should protrude from an authentic period outfit. This type of pixie tattoo is perfect for someone who wants to give an impression of being flirty, fun and a little mysterious.

Pixie Hands

Design a tattoo showing a pair of delicate hands sprinkling fairy dust. The dust can be falling on something with meaning to you---such as a sleeping baby or a fountain pen---or the dust can spill down and around the body part you choose to place the tattoo on. For example, if the hands are on your upper arm, the fairy dust could trickle all the way to your elbow.
