THE MOTH




“Like a moth to a flame”



As with many symbols, there are contrasting meanings when looking at a moth. Many are similar to the butterfly.








There is a certain vanity associated with the moth sometimes - dancing around a flame, craving light.

The moth can be symbolic of a destructive force, creating damage (pest)

Influenced by the moon, they may carry some of the moons symbolism also such as , intuition & revealing that which has been hidden.




Just like butterflies moths are metamorphosal and so are ancient symbols for change and transformation and new directions





I love moths and often use them in my work.


I have a selection of moth designs as ‘ready to wear’ ink …. here




Or I often use them in my custom design work, which you can see.... here



Or you can see examples of my ‘tattooed leather art’ with a ‘entomology’ theme …. here
