Feather tattoos are fascinating in that they're embraced in numerous ways as far as where they're placed on the body, possibly being among the largest variety of placements of the majority of tattoo themes I've seen.
A couple of things with feathers, is the ladies by far prefer them above men, and probably 90 percent or more either have a Native America look and feel or a peacock. There are exceptions, but that's easily the most popular.
As to where they're placed, as you'll see below, because of the shape of a feather, they lend themselves to places the majority of other tattoos can't go or don't look good. For example, behind the ear is popular, and some even have them on the sides of their fingers because of the slender shape.
When looking for feather tattoo designs, I thought I would find them in a large number of scenes, as it was thought feathers would be easy to adapt to a number of areas. But interestingly, most that I have been able to find are standalone.
You just never know the tastes and outcomes you will get when researching tattoos. That's why it's never boring and you can always be surprised.
We'll start off with one of the more unique feather tattoos I found, and I love the color of this along with the water droplets as well. I like the simplicity and overall look of this one.

Does this peacock tattoo stand out or what. The colors are fantastic and that swirling going around the side is amazing to me. Normally I don't like tattoos you can't see when you look straight at them, but the scrolling in this case really works.

The next three photos are of feather tattoos placed on smaller areas of the body. My favorite of these by far is the feather on the finger. Although it is difficult to see, it would be a great conversation starter, and fun to show off when asked about it.

Add to that the shape of the theme, which lends itself to being placed almost anywhere on the body, and it's a lot of fun to think of ways that could be done.
