Today, almost everyone knows about a bird with magical powers. We constantly find references to phoenixes in movies, books, music and comics. However, not many are aware that this image was invented not by the author of the best-selling book about Harry Potter, but it has much more ancient roots. Let’s try to understand the various meanings of tattoo phoenix, let’s see our selection of photos and sketches on this topic.
Initially, the image of the phoenix began to form in ancient Egypt. Later descriptions of the magical bird came down to us in the form of legends and epics. Phoenixes are credited with incredible longevity and the ability to degenerate. The life of this bird lasts about 500 years, after which she burns and arises from the ashes again. But you probably know this story. By the way, write in the comments where have you heard about the abilities of a miracle bird first.
The meaning of the phoenix tattoo is directly related to all popular representations of it. First of all, it is a symbol of creation, longevity. Many people want to emphasize the ability to reborn in a tattoo. Burning and rebelling of the phoenix from the ashes symbolizes the eternal, immortal soul. In addition, in the tattoo with the image of the phoenix, there is a fire almost always. This attribute symbolizes purification, the fire erases all the superfluous, negative, what must be left in the past.
The phoenixes are treated in much the same way as dragons in eastern civilization. These ancient creatures are incredibly revered and a tattoo in the form of a phoenix or dragon will denote virtue.
Whoever owns a phoenix tattoo on his arm or leg, with the advent of tattoos, his or her life is almost guaranteed to find new colors. This is an incredibly energetic and colorful plot that will inspire movement and new achievements. There are many options for depicting a mystical bird. I can’t approve some of them, they are too much like a peacock or a dragon.
In my opinion, the phoenix is a very original, vivid picture, which should fascinate and tell the whole story. Therefore, I would recommend doing a voluminous phoenix bird tattoo on a large part of the body — the back, the front of the trunk or the hip. The wings can be of different colors: yellow, red, green, white or black in Asian interpretations, but in the traditional view the phoenix is depicted in fiery colors with wide wings.
