Bird Tattoo Designs Sure to Inspire You

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!).
