170 Hummingbird tattoos (and their meaning)

The hummingbird is (and has been) a symbol of life and prosperity in many cultures. The Aztecs were known to create valuable hummingbird talismans – who would have had the power to enhance the sexual prowess of those who wore them and to give them more talent and energy, qualities that warriors still need- .

The hummingbird is a bird of joy and love. Also known as "the love bird", the hummingbird is the national bird of the island of Jamaica and a popular icon of the Caribbean. In Mexico and parts of Peru, pre-Columbian societies such as Aztecs paid tribute to the hummingbird in various ceremonies and renowned works of art. From the heights of heaven, above the Peruvian plains of Nazca, you can still see the Giant contours of a magnificent hummingbird carved in stone by the people Nazca, a culture that existed even before the ancient Incas.

In native cultures of North America, like those of the tribes Ojibwe and haidathere are stories about the origin of the hummingbird. One of these legends says that these little buzzing creatures would have been created by the crow, from the beautiful flowers that bud in the spring. The raven would have then breathed into his new creation the ability to fly here and there, like "the radiant sunlight between the leaves of the trees". As a token of gratitude, the hummingbird would have gone to thank each flower for these gifts of beauty and grace. This magnificent story shows the playful nature of this exquisite little bird.
