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.

A cherub or cherubim, are angels depicted as infants or young children, most often boys. Historically, winged figures with a human form pre-date even the bible, going back to Assyrian myths and legends. The winged figures were often sent as messengers or guides. In Hebrew cherubim were supernatural entities mentioned several times in the Old Testament and the Torah.
