One of my favourite images is the one of the peacock. A truly iconic bird, the peacock appears on many flags and does it well. I am sure you have all seen this particular flag in use. It has become a symbol for peace, love and goodwill.
So how did this popular bird become associated with peace and goodwill? The peacock feather dates back to prehistoric times. In prehistoric times, stone Age people discovered they could grind down animal bones and use the powdered bone for tool making. Once these stone tools were discovered, they revolutionized the art of making weapons. Soon, people were creating jewellery and other objects out of bone and teeth.
The peacock feather became associated with peacocks because of its similarity to this wild bird. Peacocks are always portrayed as happy, playful and combative. Interestingly enough, the same attributes that make peacocks so unique are what make humans so drawn to them. A peacock feather is almost always matched with a red hat, which is typically a symbol of peace. They also seem to like wearing white, as this colour represents purity. These traits make the peacock one of the most powerful birds of antiquity.
So how can you show me a picture of a peacock feather? Well, if you really want to show off this magnificent bird, it will not be difficult. One great way is by using peacock feather tattoos. Peacock feather tattoos are very popular and can be depicted on almost any part of the body. The best part about these tattoos is that they can mean many different things to various people. You might get a peacock tattoo because you identify with the message that “peacocks represent happiness” or you might have a tattoo because you love the symbolism behind the bird and the strong sense of freedom and spirituality that comes with it.
The best way to choose a tattoo design that includes the peacock feather is to look through tattoo parlor catalogues to see the variety of designs that they have. Then, talk to some tattoo artists to see which designs appeal to you. Some tattoo artists specialize in tribal and Celtic designs, while others specialize in animal tattoo artwork. Either way, you should be able to find an artist who specializes in tribal peacock feather designs. When talking to an artist, make sure that you tell them about your desire for a peacock feather tattoo. While some tattoo parlors may have artists who are willing to do these tats, more often than not, artists will tell you no unless you specifically ask them to.
After you’ve chosen an appropriate design, it’s time to think about size. Some people, when picking a peacock feather tattoo, choose it because they’re small and can fit on the foot. This is definitely an option but sometimes, artists will make larger pieces for you to have on your body. Another option for those who aren’t small is to get a small one placed on your ankle or wrist. If you choose one of these smaller tattoos, then it’s important that you know how big it will actually be before going to the tattoo parlor. You don’t want to be surprised at the final piece when it’s done!
After all that has been said, the most difficult aspect of choosing a peacock feather tattoo is simply deciding which design you like. The internet is filled with images for you to choose from, but it’s really just a matter of finding one that suits you and your personality. The best thing to do is print out several different designs and put them together to come up with a final choice. Make sure that it really represents you, because only you will be able to pull it off.
Now that you’ve decided to go ahead and get a tattoo of a peacock feather, you need to think about how you are going to place it. There are a few different options to consider. Sometimes, people choose to get the peacock feather in a visible spot, such as on the back of the neck or on the shoulder. Other times, they choose to cover up the design with clothing.
