Birds are a common request when it comes to drawing up custom tattoo designs. And with good reason! Not only are they some of the most beautiful creatures on earth, they are also symobols most often associated with freedom, love, and strength.
There are thousands of different species of birds around the world, giving us lots of variety and options to choose from when designing a tattoo. And lucky for me, I love tattooing them!
If you're considering a bird tattoo and looking for some inspiration, then this post is for you! Here are some bird tattoos I've designed for my lovely clients...(now this goes without saying, but these are meant as inspiration only. Copying someone else's tattoo is really not cool, and using someone else's art without permission is stealing!).
From quick sketches, to finished designs...
I also love taking on specific requests:
A springtime swallow
An adorable little round finch
A momento mori
Some cute little chickadees
Some cardinals in the wild
Here's something a little darker
Or as part of a bigger piece...
Something matching with your sister or friend...
Voila! These are just some of the many bird tattoos I've done over the years. I hope this blog was helpful in some way at sparking some inspiration for your next tattoo! Let me know in the comments if you have any favorites.
