The world’s tiniest bird, the hummingbird makes a great subject for tattoos. The world of tattoo art features various designs depicting this pretty bird. The sharp long beak and gracefully spread wings are inked in different shades, to add to the beauty of the design. Hummingbird tattoos are sometimes done in a single color too, based on tribal designs. Whatever the style, be it monochrome or multicolored, realistic or stylized, hummingbird tattoo designs need the hand of a master artist.
The delicate features packed into a tiny frame, can only be highlighted with fine artistic strokes. A hummingbird, inked with the colors of the rainbow, makes a stunning tattoo design. Realistically inked feathery wings often give a life-like feel to a hummingbird tattoo. Often, the skill of the artist gives a unique touch to the tiny bird design. Fine white lines to highlight curves, shading on the wing-tips without adding outlines, and dense shaded areas on the wings, are some techniques used to create a special design. Inked alongside a flower, or two red roses, hummingbird tattoos express love, joy and the desire to fly. Tribal designs inked with flowy lines often add a bold touch to a hummingbird tattoo.
