Simple black phoenix tattoo design
The phoenix is a mythical creature surrounded by legends that say the bird can live for hundreds of years, continuously setting itself on fire and being reborn as it rises from the ashes. Because of this, in most phoenix tattoos, the bird is portrayed as looking down as it rises upwards, just like in this phoenix tattoo idea, representing rebirth or new beginnings. The tattoo design in this photo features a simple black outline of a phoenix with long, flowing tail feathers and partially colored in wings with a spiral shape incorporated into the image. This phoenix tattoo would look great on the arm or leg for guys, or on the back of the shoulder for girls.
