“Artist’s Comments

My newest tattoo.Thanks for all the favorites and comments!Side note: I did not draw this. I found it randomly online. Someone commented on the fact that it was from threadless.com, so credit goes to them for the idea!”    (Sheishere comment)

Ashley’s Memorial Tattoo




Shorty wrote to explain his decision to display the Feather tattoo on his body (left bicep): Shorty has “diabetes type 1 .. and under the feather it writes “life is a waving feather” .. 21 bird are the 21 years that pased in my life .. and this tat should mean I’ve decided to grow and be a better man :D”

    My friend is a huge fan of tattoos. She just collects them “in theory” and not on her body yet–she doesn’t have enough canvas for them all. Would you mind if I shared this with her?

    Also, thanks for visiting “on celebrating Earth day”. I think I got three hours of sleep the night before, so I’m glad it’s not entirely nonsensical.

    Thanks for stoping by my blog or even finding it since I put it under the wrong name.

    I have one tat — a treble and bass clef that form a heart — on top of my right foot. My husband and I are both musicians. I love seeing beautiful tats and will someday get another …


  12. April 2, 2013 at 00:19

    I really don’t like tattoos, but even I would have to say that this is beautiful. Thank you for your visit. Best wishes.

    Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.

    As an artist ( sculpture, paints) I love this tattoo! The concept is beautiful, such a clever idea!

    I love this! I am wanting to get a similar one to represent me being able to put my past behind me. I’m ready to let go and move on with my wonderful life. It makes me feel stronger to be able to know that I will never have to go through my past ever agin 🙂


    • August 10, 2012 at 06:42

      That sounds like a perfect idea. When the tat has significant meaning to you it will never become one of those ‘now what was I thinking?’ moments. Meaningful forever.

    im planning on getting a tattoo like one of these soon, and im putting a quote with it that says “only the ones who have fallen will learn how to fly” 🙂

    I am getting a tat similar to this too! Mine is a Native American feather symbolizing my grandfather and the birds symbolise freedom for him and freedom for me from the pain of his death. It makes me think happy thoughts 🙂

    In 27 I just got 3 birds flying on my shoulder blade and to me this means a lot. I grew up with an abusive dad and not a good relationship with my mom so as each bird spreads its wing more and more it symbolizes me growing up and moving on and going my own way. And I love this tatoo so much. Anyone have any suggestions about tattoos about strength ?

    When I first saw this tattoo i felt in love with it, i want to get it on my back, with a quote that represent life, enjoying every moment because each second of our lifes are counted. For me, the feather represent life and the birds represents the seconds, the days and the years flying away

    Im planning on getting a variation of this tattoo as a tribute to my uncle who fought a lifetime of depression and ended it by taking his own life. The only comfort now is knowing he is no longer suffering and thy is what the birds flying away represents for me. The freedom from his life of pain.

    I love this tattoo! I am going to get that tattoo on my ribs, with the birds flying towards my back. I will have a quote that says “Let your dreams take wing”. I want some of the birds to turn into music notes and stars. Now I am just looking for a good artist in my area to do the tattoo justice.

    Thanks for posting mine also…… the tat has so much meanibg to me and I appreciate u telling the story behind it!


  23. January 18, 2012 at 21:57

    omg i really love this tattoo.. i wanna get it.. the birds remind me of FREEDOM! ❤


    • January 19, 2012 at 04:28


      I think that is one of the beauties of this tattoo…it has several impressions/possible meanings. Should you get it in the future check back with an update please.

    can you please tell me how much it cost for you to get it?


    • November 3, 2011 at 18:25

      SHB….My experience is an estimate, which varies cross country, a consultation may be $40-60 on average. The actual tat work can vary at $125-150 per hour. Often your initial consultation fee can go toward the the total cost. Most competent artist will know how many hours you are looking at. Ornate work may take multiple sessions of say 2-3 hours each session. An detailed, project will push a $!000. The Peacock tats would fall at $600. I bet….(multiple feathers/peacock eyes). Hope that helps

    I will have this tattoo soon, not exactly this way. For me it represent the life, like a hourglass, i will write Life is now or never, …………… don’t waste time to put off till to-morrow

    how much did someone pay for the first tattoo on this page?


    • 50 SwittersB
      June 6, 2011 at 06:40

      Angel…I cannot speak to the Peacock feather tattoo’s cost. In my neck of the woods (NW) a consultation fee ranges around $40-50 (there a few obnoxious ones at $100+); then the tat work usually prices out at $125 to 150 an hour. The original consultation fee is added to the final tab as a rule, if they are a well intentioned shop. Any tip above that is up to you.

        I am not up to speed on the pricing in other parts of the country.

    hello, i love this tatto so much, i was thinking of getting it done on my foot, do u think that would work?


    • 52 SwittersB
      May 25, 2011 at 13:27

      Would be a very beautiful spot, assuming not much friction there over time with footwear. If you do that, please share!


    • 53 SwittersB
      May 27, 2011 at 21:26

      A quick search on SwittersB and on Googles Images will reveal a pic of a Peacock feather on the side/top of a foot. Quite pretty, appealing.

    i fell in love with this tat. the 1st time i seen it. about 4 years ago. now I’m old enough to finally get it. i will be getting it today or 2morrow.. 😀

    my meaning(s): it shows all the different parts the takes to make a whole.. all the different qualities that make me who i am..

    ** it also represents how much of a free spirited person that i am.

    i will b changing a few things to make it more “me”..

    Hi i saw this tattoo and i fell in love with it, i have a tattoo on the back of my neck with my sister’s name around a butterfly that she drew before she died and i would love to get this tattoo on my lower back with the birds flying towards my sister tattoo.

        ok so i had planned to go to Harrogate to North Star, today (UK, England) but they are closed so ill be going next Sunday. My idea is to have a single bird breaking off from the main body of the feather for each family member that has passed away. Above the feather i will have “Fly on proud bird” and below i will have “you’re free at last”. A quote from a poem from a lead singer about one of his band members that had passed on.

      Hello Katelyn…Yes, it is beautiful and full of different interpretations. Note Sheishere (Kelly) borrowed the concept (see her comments) and it has been borrowed further….have at it and send me a pic when done…I will post here…do a little bio re bro and your motivation to honor him….very beautiful thing for sister to consider.

    • 70 SwittersB
      October 26, 2009 at 07:18

      I believe Parts of the Whole. Are the Birds Flying Away From The Whole? Or, Flying Toward to Assemble the Whole? Pretty cool concepts and can be whatever someone wants I spose…your vision is cool too….
