The graceful forms of birds make for beautiful tattoo designs. Ever since the earliest human looked upward and saw birds flying, the desire to fly has been a part and parcel of our existence. Many people express their dreams of flying with colorful bird tattoo designs. Birds not only express the wish to fly, but also the urge for freedom beyond restrictions. The flight of birds in an open sky is a common theme of tattoos celebrating a free spirit.
Brightly colored bird tattoos celebrate the joy of life. Birds and flowers have a sweet and natural relationship, so birds are often inked in floral tattoos. A colorful hummingbird is shown hovering near a hibiscus flower, in many bird tattoo designs. The spread out wings of birds add beauty to a tattoo. Birds flying in a regular formation, are often inked in vertical design back tattoos. Many people also go for bright and hopeful tattoos showing colorful songbirds. Vibrantly hued birds on a bare wintry branch express the hope of new life. Birds also feature in powerful myths. The phoenix tattoo, for example, celebrates the theme of transformation. The bird of death, the vulture, inked alongside a skull, expresses the idea of mortality.
