This image is not in my book 'Tattoos in der Kunst' but if you are interested in the butterfly as a tattoo motif my book (in German) may be interesting for you:

A PhD thesis about the materiality, placement, iconography, reception of tattoos and a lot of tattoo history. 
Ca. 280 pages and almost 150 images.
