Phoenix rising tattoo design
Phoenix tattoo designs are popular among people who have struggled to overcome an obstacle in their life, and are representative of new beginnings. This is because the phoenix – a mythological bird of fire – is said to set itself on fire when it becomes tired and rise from the ashes after three days. Phoenix tattoos come in all shapes and sizes and look great pretty much anywhere on the body, making them popular tattoo designs for girls and guys alike. This phoenix tattoo design features a black and white phoenix suspended in mid-air with its wings spread and its tail feathers accompanied by tiny black stars. The phoenix in this tattoo idea is looking down at where it came from – another symbol of rebirth or overcoming something difficult.
