Fashion for tattoos is eternal. People have long sought to decorate their bodies with intricate patterns that remind them of one or another event in their life. Some, of course, do not imply a specific meaning in the chosen tattoo, but this does not mean that the image does not. One of the most common and beautiful pictures on the body is the mythical Firebird. A tattoo of this fantastic nature is meant to be a vivid ornament on the body of a person who, during a difficult moment, makes you smile and remember something bright.
The image of Russian fairy tales
This magical creature in Russia was considered a symbol of rebirth, a new life and even a resurrection, which connects him with an overseas brother - Phoenix. Light and rebirth from the ashes - the main features of living lights that came to us from legends. In ancient times this bird was for the Slavs a kind of deity, which was responsible for sunlight. Our ancestors really believed that they were protected by none other than the Firebird.
A tattoo, like the mythical being itself, can also be responsible for the sun only not in heaven, but in the soul of man.
This fictional character was closely associated with fire, and not only because of his sultry appearance. As a fire can burn forever, changing from one log to another, so the Firebird was a dying, then a newly born magical creature. Hence the ancient Roman tradition of painting the bird on coins, because it was believed that this is a symbol of the inviolability and eternal life of the state.
As for later times, at the time of the spread of Christianity in Russia, the Firebird was considered the symbol of eternal life of the soul. The tattoo with this image also has a life-affirming meaning.
There are many examples where a tattoo has changed the nature of a person, for example, a skull image does not bring anything good, and a picture with a kitten or a puppy will make its owner softer and friendly. Proceeding from the above, it is possible to say with certainty that the Firebird tattoo has a positive value and does not bode well for its owner.
Meaning of tattoo
However beautiful as the image of the Firebird in the ancient Russian culture, it is impossible to interpret it as absolutely positive from the point of view of tattoos. The first and most basic is immortality - here just comes to mind the bird Phoenix.
The following interpretation differs from the previous ones. It is noteworthy that, among other things, the cosmic symbol of infinity can identify the Firebird. Tatu will give the owner a powerful defense against bad influence only if the person himself puts such a meaning into it. Otherwise it will "burn" the owner, that is, change its essence. He can completely change his tastes and become a completely different person.
How do they represent the Firebird on a tattoo?
Very good looking bird on the hand in the form of a mottled sleeve. It can be multi-colored and shimmer with all the shades of the rainbow or consist of the usual bright orange or scarlet. Often, a fairy-tale bird is depicted in flight - it seems to flit from the chest to the hand of its owner, reliably guarding it from the evil eye. Feather feathers look good on the back. It looks very impressive when bright, like fiery feathers, decorate the skin.
The images are great, but only the fan of drawings on the body will decide what will be his Firebird (tattoo). A photo with different versions of tattoos can be seen in the article.
