Cupcake tattoos have a variety of meanings, and are often symbols for female genitalia or female orgasm. They can also be a symbol of indulgence, selfish desires, femininity and masturbation. They can, however, possess more innocent meanings.
A cupcake is a self-indulgent treat and is stereotypically considered a product that women enjoy. Women often get cupcake tattoos to depict features of their personalities, such as a love of bright colors, sweetness or cuteness.
