Wings tattooed on the chest could have many meanings, and it starts with the type of wings chosen. Many simply choose wings that are akin to an eagle. This usually means that you are connected to nature and that you believe in freedom.
Of course, there are others who choose a more fantastical set of wings such as those of a phoenix.
This usually means that you are a person that believes in honesty and truth. The phoenix has also been associated with reincarnation.
Others choose a darker route when it comes to the type of wings used. Some use something closer to the wings of a dragon or even a demon-like creature. These choices are definitely darker and could mean all sorts of things. Most of the time, these types of wings are meant to show that you are not afraid of facing the evils of this world and that you will rise above them.
There is a third type of tattoo design that is usually used on the chest, which are the wings of an angel. The religious implications of angel’s wings are definitely at the forefront of this particular type of design. It could mean that the wearer feels close to angels or sees himself as a protector of others. It could also represent the wearer’s innocence is out in the open.
