Ladybug tattoo design meaningsLadybug Tattoo Designs - Cultures all over the world associate the fabled Ladybug with Good Luck and Good Fortune. For the English and French farmers it indicates good weather. In Sweden and other countries the Ladybug will bring Good Luck with finding your true love. Some Asian cultures believe that the Ladybug understands human language, and has been blessed by God. In Europe, during the Middle Ages, insects were destroying the crops, so the Catholic farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help. Soon the Ladybugs came, ate the plant-destroying pests and saved the crops! The farmers began calling the ladybugs "The Beetles of Our Lady", and they eventually became known as "Lady Beetles"! The red wings represented the Virgin's cloak and the black spots represented her joys and sorrows.

The ladybug is the Official State Bug of Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Ohio.

A Ladybug landing on a person will bring Good Fortune, and if one lands on you when you are ill, it takes the illness away.

If a ladybug lands on the hand of a recently married woman the number of dots on its back is the number of children she will have.
