Birds are simply fascinating. Whether it is their remarkable plumage, their beautiful singing, or just the sheer ability to take flight, we find ourselves completely enamored with the creatures. And since we can't spread our wings and take flight on our own, we do the next best thing — cover our bodies with colorful bird tattoos. 


Just like how a peacock uses his gorgeous tail feathers to attract a mate, we use tattoos to enhance our aesthetic. Thus, a bird tattoo is how we take our boring old flesh and make it all kinds of pretty.

Part of what makes birds, and subsequently bird tattoos, so intriguing is the enormous variety within the species. On a surface level it's almost impossible to believe that penguins, eagles, flamingos, and ostriches are all in the same species. They say that birds of a feather flock together, but we say that you should gather up your crew and get bird tattoos together, how cool would that be?
