Tribal phoenix tattoo design with raised wings
The phoenix – known as a bird of fire – is a mythical creature, which means phoenix tattoos can be designed in an infinite number of ways without much concern about accuracy. This phoenix tattoo design features a simple tribal phoenix with its wings raised to form a near-complete circle above the bird’s head. The phoenix tattoo idea in this picture is inked in black and white, and the design is almost abstract. Regardless of their design though, phoenix tattoos are typically meant to symbolize rebirth or new beginnings, which comes from ancient legends indicating that the phoenix can set itself on fire and be reborn from the ashes.
