If you have high spirits and enjoy creatures that fly, you may want to get a bird tattoo. These beautiful vertebrates have feathers, no teeth and typically have a strong, but lightweight skeleton. This is a social creature that will communicate with fellow birds or humans by way of songs, calls or visual signs. It’s estimated that there are at least 10,000 types of bird species. This tattoo design will mean various things depending on the type of bird you select. For instance, the dove tattoo placed on the heel of your foot may mean that you have a free spirit. On the other hand, getting a hummingbird tattoo indicates to others that you’ve endured many of the hardships of life and have come out as the victor. Birds are tattooed frequently because they can be beautifully rendered and are very colorful.
