Tattoo Design: Peacock, Feather and Flowers

A little over a year ago, I highlighted the Peacock Tattoo by Jere Ware (Atlas Tattoo-Portland) on my wife Mary Jo’s arm. This year, my wife decided the Peacock tat needed some added habitat. She conspired with Paul Zenk (Infinity Tattoo-Portland) to design a beautiful collection of Peonies, Cherry blossoms and leaves around the Peacock. The results were beautiful. Paul Zenk respecting the work of  Jere Ware created a magical floral arrangement around the regal Peacock.

Another Peony, more pink, sits next to the Peacock’s head. Cherry blossoms continued down the forearm and up the back of the arm

In the end, the Peacock tattoo is surrounded by a perfect habitat of Peonies, Cherry Blossoms and variegated leaves

Tattoos are definitely not for everyone. A mental adjustment occurs for those that acquire one. You look at it and go, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe that is on me’. Mary Jo put in about 18 hours of serious mind control while Jere Ware and Paul Zenk created. The results have been very satisfying to all involved.

Peacock & Peafowl (Tattoos & Fly Fishing)

There is a fascination with Peacock feathers in fly tying and fly fishing. It is a beautiful bird, a male bird. Did you know that the actual bird is a Peafowl? The male is the Peacock and the female is the Peahen. The Peafowl is the national bird of India. And, the Peacock’s plumage is the subject of many tattoo designs, particularly for women.

Even this old peacock piece was tucked away in my deceased uncle’s shop, up on a shelf amidst his tools, reloading dies and cigar boxes. He was a fly fisher and this was apparently symbolic to him.

Peafowl are omnivorous and roost in trees when not foraging for reptiles, amphibians and plant parts. (learn more here about Peafowl/Peacocks)

Peacock Tattoo: Design & Application

Bucky’s Finished Tattoo (SwittersB)

Jerry Ware of Atlas Tattoo (Portland, Oregon) did some nice color work for a Peacock Tattoo on, my wife, Bucky. Many peacock, bird feather tattoos have some part of the peacock herl. Bucky and Jerry Ware conspired to design the peacock feather, peacock eye and the peacock bird’s head. The following pics show the progression from design, template, beginning ink to the finished tat above. It will look better once cleaned up.

Jerry Ware is the consummate conversationalist, ink artist and all around nice guy. The banter inside the shop, visuals and sense of comfort are enjoyable as you spend several hours practicing mind control, employing breathing techniques…all to take the edge off the needles.

Of course, getting a tattoo is not for everyone, for all manner of reasons. Portlandia (Oregon in general) has a visible rep for tattoo art and it is more common place and acceptable, so the mind works through the pro’s/con’s with less social mores clutter. It should be special and thoughtfully considered. The above tattoo took several years to work through the mind. Life’s journey can rob the impetus or bestow the incentive to get a tattoo. It just has to be the right time for the first one.

Peacock Feather Tattoo design options

Peacock feather tattoos continue to be a hot tattoo design for women. The peacock feather does lend itself to colorful options for ink. This site is a bit naughty, so look at the peacock feather pics but don’t venture to far left or right and I don’t mean the Oregon Blueberry ad either….  bodypainting69   (don’t enter if easily offended….intended for those only interested in peacock feather tattoo design options…there are two interesting designs here…)

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
