Until the invention of the airplane, humans were, with extremely few exceptions, earthbound. For this reason, people have always looked upon birds as being a symbol of freedom. Even the United States’ national mascot is a large bird, a symbol for the freedoms that the country grants its citizens. The ability to fly gives a creature the ability to go wherever it wants, whenever it wants. Birds are not limited by roads or rocky terrain. Instead, they are limited only by themselves.
This idea of freedom makes bird tattoos a very popular option for those who are looking for a tattoo to represent their own liberty. Because birds come in many different colors and varieties, there is a great deal of individuality that can be put into a bird tattoo, making each one a beautiful and unique work of art.
