Cherubs are usually known as baby angels. Their significance goes back to the writing of the Old Testament and ancient Hebrew stories. They are often depicted as young boys or girls with chubby bodies and small wings. Sometimes they are playful, mischievous, frightened or holy.
Angels are a powerful tattoo image, as they profess faith and offer the wearer a sense of protection and guidance. And cherubs are among the most popular of the angel tattoo designs.
