You may have been considering owl tattoos recently but were you aware of how popular these have become in these last few years? One of the most sought after designs of this nature has to be the tribal owl which continues to increase in popularity but let’s take a look at what is so special about this particular bird. The symbolism behind the own is of course wisdom and this has been celebrated by many cultures around the world who have a special reverence for this bird of the night. Owls have been linked to the mystical since ancient times so it is unsurprising that they feature so highly in tales of magic and wizardry. The Native American tribe, the Cree, believed that the Boreal owl’s cry was a summons to the spirit world’s entrance and but spiritual significance has also been given to the owl by many other cultures too. This may be why it is a popular feature in tribal tattoo designs.

There are many ways to find a great bird design and not just from browsing though online galleries to look at existing images. If you are a nature lover or just enjoy the great outdoors this could be a great tattoo to express this part of your personality. Why not, go for a walk in the woods and see what inspiration Mother Nature has to offer. You may see an odd looking tree that would make a great image as the backdrop for your owl design so take a picture and take it to your tattoo artist who may be able to work some magic of his own to make this unique to you. The beauty of own tattoos is that they can be as simplistic or as detailed as you choose and this includes the colors and styles you opt for too. These look great as a lone symbol in a small design but can be equally impressive as part of a larger design with other images incorporated to the overall body art.

Like any other design, owl tattoos should be chosen only after extensive research as there are so many options available. After all this is going to be with you permanently so you really need to make sure you get it right. Location is important too as owl tattoos may not go down well in your place of work if displayed on a prominent area like the arm. This type of tattoo is suitable for women too but regardless of gender, these symbolize strength in pride in the individual, which appeals to both sexes.
