Hummingbird With Lily Tattoo - Hummingbird Tattoos

Bird tattoos are becoming more and more popular, and the hummingbird is one of the most popular of all. Hummingbirds live in the Americas—as far north as Alaska and as far south as Chile—and have been portrayed in Native American legends, literature, folklore, and mythology, where they are often used as a symbol of love. They are also strongly associated with the Aztecs, whose royalty and religious leaders wore feathers and dead hummingbirds around their neck in small bags. The Aztecs believed dead warriors were reincarnated as hummingbirds. Trinidad and Tobago are known as the «the land of hummingbirds.»

The hummingbird is a unique and graceful bird. It can fly in all directions, even backwards and upside down, up to 25 miles per hour, and then stop on a dime. It eats up to fifty times a day just to stay alive, due to its constant burning of energy. The hummingbird is often inked with flowers, for it could not survive without flowers and flowers could not survive without the hummingbird.

Because the hummingbird is so small, it has to work hard to survive. A tattoo of a hummingbird can represent this difficulty and could be meaningful to a person who has been through a lot in life. Many people can relate to this and the hummingbird has become a symbol of the strength it takes to rise above trouble and hardship. Yes, it does represent going through hard times, but it stands for surpassing them. It can represent someone that lives life to the fullest and loves life and every breath. We are often told to enjoy every moment, but do we live that way? The hummingbird tattoo can remind you of that.
