When it comes to birds that soar across the open skies, it’s easy to look up and admire their free-spirited nature. Their travels in flocks may seem peculiar to us, however the idea of loyalty and commitment is universally understood.
There are countless birds out there, each symbolizing something uniquely different. From eagles to owls, doves, falcons, hawks, ravens, crows, vultures and more. Yes, there are a lot!
Yet, all of them symbolize quite one thing quite well, the idea of freedom. Their unrestricted travel is only limited by wind’s direction, however, even then a bird can still choose to drift in any direction they please.
Aside from the simplest meanings of them all, some see bird designs in other ways. Take for instance, rising up from a past failure or having bravery in times of dreadful weather/circumstances.
Even ducks and geese hold a rather interesting hidden stories. Aside from choosing their partners for life, they are extremely protective and loyal to their family. As a human, you could say the same about marriage.
When it comes to feathers, ancient tribes have been incorporating them into rituals for generations. They can symbolize healing and medicine, not to mention status or tribal authority.
With that said, I’d like to share with you 60 bird tattoos for men featuring all sorts of creative and masculine designs. From smaller pieces on the forearms to colossal back artwork, there’s plenty to be freely inspired by.
