140 Parrot tattoos (and their meanings)

Like other animal tattoos, parrot tattoos strongly evoke the traits and characteristics of the animal and allow those who wear them to show their own personality. Many cultures also consider parrots to be symbolic birds, and linking your design to a particular culture or artistic style is another way to express your unique vision of this creature.

In general, the symbolism of birds is compartmentalized and full of meaning: their ability to fly represents the need to be free or to escape; their harmonious melodies highlight the sounds of nature and the importance of communication, and the affinity they feel for each other and that allows them to travel in bands demonstrates a strong instinct of loyalty and camaraderie. Parrots share these qualities with other birds but they also have their own unique characteristics. Parrots, by nature, are very sociable creatures and are also quite intelligent. In fact, they can pronounce words of human language and parody the language of their owners.

This quality of communication and the importance of the language could make you want to make you do a parrot tattoo rather than any other bird. So the time has come to choose what type of parrot you would like to represent on your drawing.

The parrots areimportant symbols in a lot of cultures. Their affinity with language and the fact that they imitate human conversations make them symbols of communication in many cultures, as well as companions for humans. More particularly, parrots represent love and courting in Hindu culture, where the god of love (Kama) has chosen a parrot as a symbol. In native cultures of North America, the Hopi people of the southwestern US thought the parrot was a symbol of the south and abundance.

Parrots are often found in tropical regions such as the Amazon and can therefore symbolize the habitat and tropical forests of these regions. Choosing an easily recognizable and widely colored macaw or toucan parrot can demonstrate your affinity with environmentalism and your concern for issues such as deforestation and global warming.

Variations of parrot tattoos

Parrot and pirate

Pairing your parrot tattoo with a pirate tattoo can represent freedom and adventure, the "live fast and die young" mentality (many pirates roamed the seas for only a few years before being caught and executed) or simply an affinity with the stories and legends associated with piracy. When you draw a parrot tattoo with a pirate, there are different ways to make both elements coexist.

Parrot "Inseparable"

As we pointed out above, in some cultures, parrots are symbols of love and represent courting. That is why the particular kind of parrots called lovebird (love bird) is especially apt to convey this particular interpretation of parrot tattoo. Lovebird parrots are smaller than some of the better-known species, but are just as intelligent and communicative as these and obviously more fun and friendly. Lovebird parrots work better in pairs, making the tattoo of this parrot a perfect symbol of love and friendship. This is a great tattoo to be done with his partner or his best friend.
