The Symbolism of the Luna Moth

Pictured is a tattoo of a Chinese Moon Moth, family of the more commonly known American Moon Moth [Luna Moth]. The Moon or Luna Moth is believed to be symbolizing transformation, transience, the brevity of life, life cycles, and new beginnings. The Luna moth only lives a very short lifespan, on average 10 days, hence the symbolism surrounding brevity of life. 🌙
