One beautiful tattoo design that you may want to consider is the peacock tattoo. Peacock tattoos are not a mainstream tattoo design but there is a popularity for the beautiful tattoo. Peacock tattoos are worn by both sexes and designed in a variety of different ways. Some people choose a single peacock feather while others may prefer getting the entire peacock. Peacock tattoo designs are very colorful. If your looking for a tattoo that stands out, the peacock tattoo may be the choice for you.

In this article, we will discuss peacock tattoos and peacock feather tattoos. We will also review peacock tattoo meanings and you will have the opportunity to view a variety of different peacock tattoo designs.

One of the most popular and beautiful tattoos on the market is the peacock tattoo. The peacock is one of the world's most beautiful birds and the same can be said about the tattoo. When it comes to the beauty of the peacock tattoo, very few can compare. Although the peacock tattoo is mainly sported by women, men do choose to get this tattoo. The peacock is very symbolic as a tattoo.

The peacock has been symbolic to several different cultures throughout time. The peacock is symbolic to China and a variety of Asian cultures. To the Chinese, the peacock is a symbol of good luck and good fortune. The peacock has also been used as a high rank status. In Hindu mythology, the peacock is associated to the god Lakshli. To the Hindu, the peacock symbolizes patience, kindness, and understanding. There are several legends and myths that surround the peacock. In total, the peacock is a symbol of integrity and inner beauty.

When it comes to peacock tattoo designs, there are two main types. The peacock tattoo can either portray the entire bird or just the feathers of the bird. Peacock feathers are considered to be the most beautiful feathers in the world. Peacock feathers are also some of the most distinguished all around the globe. Each peacock feather is very colorful, detailed, and the same all the way around. Toward the end of the feather, there is a circle pattern. Many ancient cultures believed that they looked like an eye. Roman and Greek cultures would refer to the peacock as "100 eyes." They believed that this was a symbol of evil and they frequently called the peacock "evil eyes."

Peacock tattoos usually portray the peacock feather or the entire peacock. Both peacock tattoo designs look absolutely stunning. Peacock tattoos can be done in beautiful shades of blue, green, purple, and pink. Some will have shades of red, orange, and yellow. The peacock tattoo gives you everything you need in a tattoo. If you are looking for a large tattoo, you can go with the fully peacock tattoo or full peacock feather tattoo. If you are looking for something small, you can go for the peacock single feather tattoo. You will rarely find another tattoo that can be so beautiful. Peacock tattoos are gorgeous!

Since peacock tattoo designs vary in size, they can nearly be tattooed anywhere on the body. The full peacock tattoo can be designed in several locations on the body. For men, you can sport the full peacock tattoo on the arms, chest, or back. For women, the full peacock tattoo can be designed on the back or down the side. Many women that choose full peacock tattoos will get the tattoo down the entire side of their body, from the side of the chest down to the ankles. If you want the peacock feather tattoo, you can nearly have it tattooed anywhere.


When it comes to peacock tattoos, there are several different meanings linked to the tattoo. Many of the meanings associated to the peacock tattoo are positive in nature. Remember, in the end, your tattoo symbolizes what you want it too. In saying that, below you can find the meanings associated to the peacock tattoo.

  • Honor
  • Truth
  • Integrity
  • Foresight
  • Values
  • Nature
  • Inner Beauty
  • Kindness
  • Understanding
  • Sexuality

Peacock tattoo designs can include a variety of different elements and symbols. Some men and women choose to add flowers to their peacock tattoo design. Such flowers could include the lotus, lily, orchid, or rose. If you wish, you could add any other flower, plant, or tree. Some peacock tattoos will also have leaves, usually with the appearance that they are moving. If your not into all the color, you could have your peacock tattoo design done in black ink. You may want to have it done in black ink with light color shading. There are all kinds of designs to choose from and all kinds of ways to make a unique tattoo design for only you. Just make sure you take the time to view all the different peacock tattoo designs in this article. This will help give you some ideas and inspiration for your own peacock tattoo design.

Peacock tattoos can also be designed with artistic details in the background. Due to the natural color of the peacock, purple and light blue look great in the background. There are a variety of ways to add artistic designs in your peacock tattoo design. Of course, if your looking to get a peacock tattoo, you want to talk to a professional tattoo artist. If your a tattoo artist, you may have your own. Tattoos that appear like they have movement are very eyecatching. Include the beauty of the peacock and you have a great tattoo design that many will want to wear.

There are some very important things that you should remember before you chose to go get tattooed. Make sure you take the time to research your tattoo. Not only will you get ideas, you want to make sure that you completely understand what your tattoo represents and stands for. Don't rush to get inked! I stress this in every article because men and women often get inked on an impulse, a feeling. The larger percentage regret their tattoo at some point down the road. Take your time and make sure you pick the correct tattoo symbol and design. Even with laser removal and cover ups, all tattoos can't be fixed. Make sure you make the correct choice the first time around. If you feel that peacock tattoos are not for you or you want to view more tattoo designs, please feel free to follow the links below.

      Rahul, thanks for taking the time to read this article and thanks again for your comment. LOL Many people don't realize the beauty of some things Rahul, even tattoos. It is not that they are not willing, just because they don't understand. Once you learn about them, it really does open your eyes to a meaningful perspective.

      Thelyricwriter to do this right you have to use a lot of ink I didn't know Peacock ( I'm giggling ) was symbolic to China? I thought Peacock ( giggling again ) was a State symbol.. I know Connecticut was going to use the Turkey as their state bird, but then decided to go with the Nutmeg State.. then the Constitutional State.. Peacock ( giggling ) would have been cool Frank
