SMALL HISTORY OF THE PHOENIX TATTOO
The phoenix tattoo, both orthographies are admitted, is a legendary bird that we find in different ancient mythologies. This mythical bird popular among the tattooed has the ability to be reborn from the ashes.
In this article, we will discover different meanings and symbolic about this mythological animal, as well as the locations of the body to be tattooed a phoenix.
What does the Phoenix Tattoo mean?
A BEING OF FIRE
The phoenix has a super-power quite sensational: it can be reborn from the ashes. It is also said that flames spring from its beak. Like the dragon, he is linked to the element of fire. This mythical raptor sometimes with golden plumage can also be blue or even purple.
The phoenix is perfect for talking about resilience, reborn despite the difficulties. The person who wears such a phoenix tattoo also demonstrates that one can show a certain character and courage, and therefore ultimately a certain strength in the face of difficulties.
The phoenix lives up to 500 years, then sets fire to its nest before being reborn again. This capacity to be reborn is in keeping with the new beginning.
A MYSTIC BEING
In the Middle Ages, the phoenix was a symbol used by alchemists because fire was an important part of their work to turn money into gold.
