What Does A Pink Butterfly Tattoo Mean? 

Before asking ‘what does a Pink Butterfly Tattoo mean,’ first we should ask ‘what does a Butterfly Tattoo mean.’

Butterfly Tattoos symbolize themes of transformation, femininity, beauty, and hope.

Butterflies can also symbolize themes of life cycles and how that change is a natural part of life or how that change and transformation is possible, whether it be physical or emotional. 

The color pink has many meanings in art, including innocence, romance, and awareness. It can also represent friendship, harmony, and inner peace.

Pink also became associated with breast cancer awareness in the early 1990s when the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation began using pink ribbons as a symbol of the fight against the disease.
