The Celtics treated animal symbols seriously, and used them in many ways as a show of reverence just like in jewelry, carvings and Celtic butterfly tattoos.  The Celtic people also revered the cycle of life, spirituality, family, friendship and love as among the important aspects of life, and tattooed them on their bodies.

Since Celtic butterflies were involved in the process of transition, Celtic women adored this quality that they used the symbol of butterfly to associate them to childbirth as a means of commemorating the birth of their babies into the tribal community.  To be more specific, they used these symbols in Celtic butterfly tattoos that they embed on their bodies to remind them of the ever-changing cycle of life.

The Celtics adored the butterfly because of the amazing phenomenon of metamorphosis that it has to go through during childbirth ranging from its initial form as an egg, to larvae, then to pupa, and from there, the butterfly emerges.  Then, they see a beautiful object with its glory resulting from the breathtaking transformation which they embed in their thoughts through creation of a creative design.

It conveys the message of accepting any change that occurs in the environment as part of life while welcoming the product of transformation including whatever changes that may occur to the human body.  The Celtic butterfly tattoos serve as a reminder that the process of metamorphosis that the butterfly has to undergo actually represents strong faith.  Therefore, during transitions, whether abrupt or gradual, that faith should not waver.
