38 Decorative Wing Tattoo For 2013

The wish to fly has burned in the human heart since the dawn of time. Tattoos, which express our secret desires and fantasies, celebrate this human wish to fly. Wings are the best way to show the dreams of flying, and tattoo artists creatively express the flying theme through Wing Tattoo Designs.

The back often forms an ideal canvas for wing tattoos. If wings were to really sprout, the back and the shoulder is where they would be found. This is what back wing tattoos depict, the dream of humans to grow wings and fly. Wings are often inked with a space in-between, leaving the area of the spine clear. Other wing designs meet at the center, right along the line of the spine. Wings are also inked with a large space between the two, and the spine acts as the line of balance in these designs. The symmetrical design made by wings looks beautiful on the back. The wrists and lower legs are also places where small wings are often inked. Wings combine with short phrases, the heart, flying birds, and other elements in stunning designs. Whether the design shows wings of a bird or an angel, the flying dream is constant.
