There are feather tattoos, and then there are amazing feather tattoos. Peacock feather is definitely one of the amazing ones. If you would like to have peacock feather tattooed, here’s what you need to know about its meaning.
Peacock feather tattoo design incorporates two meanings – the general meaning of feather tattoos, and the meaning of peacock tattoos. Know what your tattoo means before you get it – you don’t want to end up with something that carries a symbolism you wouldn’t like.
Feathers are generally a very beautiful and gentle feminine tattoo designs. A lot of girls choose peacock feather simply because it is more beautiful than other feathers, while only a small number associates the feather to the meaning of peacock tattoos.
Feathers symbolize creativity, spiritual evaluation and rebirth. Most common places for a peacock feather are ribs, scapulas or a side of the lower back. Peacock feather should, by all means, be done in full color – it is the colors that make it so beautiful.
This is an expression that was first used back in the 14th century, and it is still quite common today. It is also the meaning of a peacock feather tattoo design.
Peacock feather tattoo could indicate a very proud person. It could be comprehended in two ways – the person wearing it could either be very proud of herself for good reasons, or simply very arrogant. If you don’t want to be perceived as an arrogant person, I’d suggest you choose a smaller tattoo, rather than one that goes across your whole back, for example.
The peacock is known as the bird with 100 eyes, referring to the pattern on its tail feathers. These eyes are considered to be all seeing, as well as being the “evil eyes.”
The eye on the peacock feather tattoo could mean that you are an open minded person – the one that looks at the world with eyes wide open, the one that is not afraid of challenges. On the other hand, in Egyptian, Roman and Greek mythology, the eye on the peacock feather is considered to be the “evil eye.” This is not always a bad thing – the “evil eye” symbols give the evil eye, as well as, protect the one who wears them.
The peacock is a very important bird for people in India. It still has a status of a worshiped bird, mainly because it slays snakes. Because it is believed that peacocks are immune to snake bites, their blood is supposed to be able to chase away evil spirits. Peacock feather tattoo can be a symbol of protection against those spirits, or simply people who would like to hurt you.
In early Christian times, peacock flesh was believed to be so high quality that it could not go bad. The peacock feathers, with the all seeing eyes, brought the peacock to a status of a sacred emblem.
Peacock feather represents a pure soul, the one that cannot be corrupted. It also stands for immortality and resurrection.
A friend of mine got herself a peacock feather tattoo after years of trying to get pregnant. When I asked her why she chose that, she explained that there is an ancient Chinese belief that if a peacock looks at a woman who has problems conceiving, she will be able to get pregnant.
Needles to say that this is just a superstition and that tattooing a peacock feather will probably not help you conceive. But it is definitely a beautiful tattoo design, and it is a choice of expecting mothers, because it is believed that a peacock feather brings easy labor and fortune to the newborn baby.
Back in 18th century the peacock was a symbol of tailors. The peacock feather tattoo, for this reason, is considered to have a meaning for people who are dealing with fabrics which are fine just as the peacock feather is. Don’t be surprised to see a peacock feather tattoo on someone who is in fashion industry.
Peacock feathers are simply beautiful, and a lot of girls tattoo them with no particular meaning. However, the outer beauty of a peacock feather shows the inner beauty of a person wearing it as a tattoo. People with peacock feather tattoos are believed to be good, honest, kind, patient and always optimistic about life.
So, tell me – what do you think about these explanations? I would like to hear what meaning a peacock feather tattoo has for you. So, if you already have a peacock feather tattoo, or if you’re planning to get one, feel free to share your thoughts.
