The emu shares the prestigious title of being a part of Australia's Coat of Arms along with the kangaroo.

But did you know that both of these animals are unable to walk backwards?

Similar to an ostrich with their long necks and legs, the emu is a flightless bird native to Australia. Emus feature heavily in Indigenous Australian mythology across various Aboriginal groups and the animals' movements often mimicked in indigenous dances. 

Despite not being seen as cute as their Coat of Arms counterpart, the kangaroo, emus make for an interesting and unique tattoo choice.
