Feathers Tattoo Meanings

Feathers are powerful symbols in multiple cultures across the world, representing freedom and our connection to nature. But feathers have a special place in North America. Native Americans believed that all parts of nature had unique spirits, and so animals were thought to have their own as well. They believed that a bird’s feathers carried the spirit of the bird that they fell from, and so feathers were often granted to successful warriors, to honour their bravery in battle. Below, we’ve put together a feather tattoo dictionary, elaborating on all of the meanings behind each of these tattoo designs. Read on, and learn about all sorts of feather symbols!
