The half-angel, half-demon tattoo represents the struggle between good and evil. It is one of the several body art representations of this subject.
The design of the tattoo mostly depends on the tastes of the user, although it often depicts a woman or man whose one half is a stereotyped angel and the other half a traditional devil or demon.
This iconography is frequently employed by individuals who have experienced the pull between good and evil, or light and darkness. For example, someone who has struggled with mental illness. This dichotomy can also be represented by various symbols, such as yin-yang, which represents light and darkness.
