Phoenix Tattoo History

The History The Phoenix

The Phoenix bird is of course a mytholigical bird and probably the most improtant of all the mytholigical birds really. There are many different cultures and traditions that have adopted the Phoenix bird over time adn so the exact details of the story and the information about the Pheonix can change slightly from culture to cutlure. Many diverse groups accepted some form of a blief in a phoenix at one time or another. For example the early Christians used the Phoenix in art to represent Christ and more specifically the ressurection of Christ. The Greeks and Romans also used the bird extensivly int heir art work and had a well developed lroe about these mythical birds.

Even though the stories vary slightly from one culture to the next their is an amazing amount of similarities behind all of them. In all of the stories it is noted that the Phoenix is a large bird with beautifull flame colored feathers of red and orange tint. In all the versions the bird is able to regenerate by burning itself and then rising from the ashes. The specifics details of how it regenerates itself differ by cutlure.

Early Christians - Saw it as a symbol of Christ and the Ressurection.

Greeks - One of the earliest names of the Phoenix was Bennu. This word got ranslated by the Greeks. The took the word Bennu and matched it with the Greek word meaning red which was Phoenix. So we borrow from the Ancient Greeks in how we name the bird. There are extensive refferences throughout Greek history in art, tales, and mythological lore about the phoenix bird. According to the Greeks the Phoenix bird lived in Arabia next to a well. Every morning the bird would take a bath in the well and sign while doing so. Then Apollo the Geek god of the sun would stop each morning in his trek to pull the sun across the sky and listen to the phoenix's beautiful song.

Their are also some traces of myths and lore surrounding the Phoenix bird in China, Japan and throughout the Middle East.

In almost every situation the bird is seen asa powerful force and a symbol of fire and divinity.

The phoenix bird really lends itself well to a tattoo. The strength power and beautiful colors of a Phoenix allw ork togheter to make a beautiful tattoo. If you are contemplatin a phoenix tattoo here are some ideas you might want to think about first.

The first thing you will want to determine is the size and placement of the tattoo. Very often people go for either a full back piece or a sleeve tattoo of a phoenix or they go for a smaller more stylized and even perhaps tribal form.

Place of a Phoenix Tattoo Large
  • Upper back
  • Lower back?
  • Full back
  • Chest tattoo
  • Full sleeve tattoo.

The other thing to consider is the style of the design. Many people like to get realistic or at least semi relaistic phoenix tattoos while others are intrested in the smaller peices and often get tribal tattoo style.

Phoenix Tattoo

The phoenix is a mythological firebird present in the folklore of several cultures, including those of the Egyptians, Arabians, Romans, Persians, Greeks, Chinese and Indians (among others). It is strongly connected to the idea of rebirth, renewal, and immortality. While phoenixes exist in the folklore of numerous cultures, the specific nature of the phoenix is anything but constant. The phoenix has traditionally been said to live for 500 to 1,000 years. At the end of its life cycle, it builds a nest of twigs, which then catches fire. The nest and bird are engulfed in flames, eventually burning to ashes. But from these ashes, a new phoenix is born, and the cycle begins anew. Depending on the specific story, the phoenix may be the same bird or the offspring of the first.

In China and Japan (where the phoenix is called the Feng Huang and the Hou-ou, respectively), the phoenix’s tale is quite different. It is closely associated with the dragon (See dragon tattoo designs), both as lover and deadly enemy, a complex motif steeped in meaning – both conflict and bliss characterize the relationship, something many people see reflected in their own relationships. Interestingly, many tattoo designs merge aspects of artistic renderings of phoenixes traditional to the version of the phoenix in Egypt and Rome with those of Chinese and Japanese tattoo designs, with striking and unique results.

The phoenix in art is portrayed numerous ways. Of course, it is typically largely inked in shades of orange, red, and yellow – fiery, intense colors. These designs place emphasis on the phoenix as a bird tattoo design of fire and draw upon that aspect of its folklore for meaning (rebirth, renewal, etc). But, just as often, some its plumage is also wildly vivid and marked with a greater variety of color, especially among Asian-inspired designs.

The prestige and otherworldly beauty of the phoenix’s plumage lends itself to designs that revel in elaborate artistry and allow for flexibility on the part of the artist – any colors go, essentially. Similarly, the bird’s shape itself varies across cultures and specific works of art. Depictions range from sharp-beaked birds of prey to long-necked birds with very long tail feathers reminiscent of cranes or even peacocks.

As mentioned before, in Asia the phoenix is linked to the dragon, and many designs integrate both in what can be interpreted as a battle or, in some designs, a kind of lover’s embrace. It is often intentionally unclear whether they are fighting or embracing – in fact, a valid interpretation would be that they are doing both simultaneously.

Some designs, on the other hand, go in exactly the opposite route, turning the traditional elaborate style on its head and going for a minimalist approach. This particular design opts for the colorful tail feathers, then adds a flame in the bird’s chest to identify it as a phoenix.

Another variation constructs the bird in a tribal fashion, using the solid lines, spirals, and arcs that characterize tribal designs to form the body of the phoenix, while the head is more free-form and closer to the traditional.

Like the tribal design before, this design also forgoes the use of color altogether (rare in phoenix designs), and draws its most striking visual feature from the tail feathers (See feather tattoo designs), much more closely resembling those of a peacock than many other designs. This affords the design an elongated, smoothly-flowing feel that works well for its placement -- wrapped from the shoulder blade, around the hip and across the midsection.
