Feather Tattoos

I know that there is nothing really feathery about tattoos but after seeing some amazing feather tattoos out there I truly felt that the topic was deserving of a post.

Creating beautiful depictions of feathers is always something that grabs my attention. All the more so when those depictions are on the human flesh.

Do you think it makes people feel closer to birds or perhaps we all really would love a pair of wings to sore through the skies.

So from what I have seen there are a bunch of different kinds of feather tattoos.

The most common seems to be the single feather on the back of the neck.

And of course it is more often than not a peacock eye feather.

After that I would say the simple feather tattoo on the foot seem to be the most common.

This I saw on a girl that I met when buying shoes. I really wanted to take a picture of it but she wouldn’t let me.

Next would be the feather tattoo right behind and under the ear. This one I think is really great because its like having permanent feather earrings that never get stuck in anything.

Another feather tattoo that is pretty common is the picture of a feather that is falling apart and the pieces are turning into birds. This one is pretty Goth looking, I think its cool.

You have any cool feather tattoo pictures you want to share with us?
