Tribal Phoenix tattoos represent being born anew or rising above adversity to gain your true power. They can also represent prestige, wisdom, overcoming pain and honor. In Greek mythology, the Phoenix is the symbol of rebirth.
Among bird tattoos they’re perhaps the most popular, and are attractive in all designs, sizes and on all places of the body.
The chest, ribs, back and arms are especially nice places to get the majestic tattoo.
However, they can be placed anywhere. The shoulder, wrists, neck, leg and ankle are also attractive options for phoenix tattoos. Small ones on the wrists, neck or ankle are just as powerful as large ones on the arm sleeve, ribcage, leg or back. They’re also perfectly matched with tattoos of fire, wings, feathers and other tribal markings.
The rising Phoenix is the most popular one among Phoenix tattoos because it truly represents rising out of the depths and becoming stronger. Dragons are similar symbols that represent almost the same things as the Phoenix. However, the Phoenix is gradually becoming more popular than the dragon among tribal tattoo lovers.
