I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “put a bird on it” in reference to tattooing.

There’s something about birds as tattoos that just works so well.

It adds movement to an otherwise fairly solid design. Mix that element with a pretty lady and you get a really fun tattoo. This was probably one of my more favorite tattoos of 2013, unfortunately I couldn’t get a decent photo to save my life. Not much else to say except that I would be quite happy doing more tattoos like this. More lady heads, more wildlife. Let’s put lots of birds on you this year! Thanks for looking!
