Cute Cupid tattoos for Valentine's Day | Radiant Fruit Set competition
Valentine's Day is almost here, and we've been checking out some cute cupid themed tattoos to celebrate the most romantic day of the year. The 14th February is the day of love and affection, and another chance to show your significant other just how much you adore them! Although for some, Valentine’s day is nothing other than a consumerist ploy to cash in on some money by selling cards, flowers and bottles of champagne, for others it’s a lovely opportunity to declare their true love for that special person.
When we think of Valentine's day, we often think of the Cupid. The phrase ‘hit with Cupid's arrow’ comes to mind, and in classic mythology, Cupid was the God of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection. He is said to be the son of the love goddess Venus and the war god Mars. He is also referred to as Amor in Latin, which means love. It is believed that anyone two people who are shot by Cupid's arrow are filled with uncontrollable desire for each other.
Nowadays, when we think of Cupid, we tend to think of a cute little cherub rather than a God, and these chubby little cherubs are always a brilliantly popular subject matter for tattoos! Getting a Cupid tattoo could be the perfect way to show your undying love for someone this Valentine's Day, so why not be inspired by these cute Cupid tattoos..
