40 Genuinely Awesome Bird Tattoos

These designs are pretty fly.

“A-well-a everybody’s heard about the bird! B-b-b-bird, bird, bird, b-bird’s the word! A-well-a bird, bird, bird, the bird is the word! A-well-a bird, bird, bird, well the bird is the word!”

If you’ve seen a particular episode of Family Guy, you’ll know exactly what we’re jibber-jabberin’ about here. If, however, you’ve never seen in your entire life the episode to which we’re referring to you’ll definitely be slightly confused at this point. Maybe we should just drop the whole Family Guy thing and get to the point? Yes! Let’s get to the point.

Birds, winged animals, beasts of the sky; whatever you want to call them, they’re mostly pretty awesome. Yes, of course, sometimes birds poo on us and that’s definitely not awesome but in the most part we believe that any animal that can fly is truly an epic kind of animal.

Seriously. Just imagine having the ability to fly. Go on. Imagine just how unbelievably epic that would be. Now of course, realistically and rather unfortunately, we’re not at the stage in human evolution where growing wings out of our backs and flying about for sustained periods of time is a realistic option. That being said we can get stylish bird tattoos inked on our skin and, I mean, that’s basically exactly the same thing as flying… right?
