Ok, I'm not sure this is appropriate so I apologise if not, but you guys seem the best to ask!
I'm having a tattoo done, and would like butterflies done in these colours as they symbolise certain things to me - I don't just want the colours though, I want to get the markings for each one right:
1. Emerald/Green -
2. Turquoise -
3. White -
4. Ruby Red -
5. Shades of Red -
If you can think of loads of different butterflies that suit - maybe one with unique markings? Whatever you can think of!
I think you are probably best to google butterflies for a particular country or continent then choose from those examples because the moment you start mixing species from different places the design will be wrong. Good luck and make sure your tattoo artist is good enough to draw 'photo real' butterflies and has a deft touch with a one or two needle gun. Please post us a finished photo as long a s it's SFW.
