Even though they're such a normal part of our everyday lives, birds have the ability to evoke so much feeling. In general, they can symbolize a free spirit, liberation, wisdom, or being at one with the earth. And, depending on the type of bird, they can symbolize even more. For example, an owl often represents mystery, magic, and intelligence; and a dove can represent peace or love or even have religious connotations. We've gathered a flock of our favorites from Instagram to help inspire your next visit to the tattoo parlor.
