The phoenix tattoo is quite a symbolic tattoo. We recently have done one on Nicholle in her arm. It really does look great on her. Here is our telling us a bit of background to her chosen colored tattoo:
“I recently had a tattoo done on my wrist, the Phoenix. It is said that the Phoenix is a legendary bird of fire. It is named for the Greek word for “red,” which indicates its fiery nature. It also symbolizes the rebirth since at the end of its cycle, the Phoenix would burn itself to ashes and after 3 days would return to life.
In a way, the Symbolism of the Phoenix is similar to that of the Serpent. The Serpent sheds its worn-out old skin in order for it to renew itself with the new skin of youth in the physical realm.
This is me. I am a Phoenix!! I am one of a kind. I have lived and died in this lifetime 3 times and still I rise and conquer my trials…”
You really are a strong woman Nicholle! We had fun getting you inked and hope we’d do another piece on you. Happy holidays!
