Do Owl Tattoos have a Meaning of any real Substance?

Owls are highly spiritual creatures and are recognised as symbolising wisdom, intuition, knowledge and mystery. They are birds of the night and hence where the expression "nigh-owl" comes from.

 

Owl tattoos can be a perfect coming-of-age tattoo marking the point in a persons life where they reach adulthood and the enhanced wisdom that comes with that. What age that might be depends on the person, so this tattoo is great whatever age you are.

 

These are one of our favourite designs for tattoos so we have gone above and beyond to bring you the very best selection of ideas to inspire your next piece of ink. Enjoy!

Takeaway Tips

Anchor tattoos are a super cute style for girls.

 

Thin linework looks fab! Thick not so much (for me personally).

 

Behind your ear, wrist and ankle seem to be some of the most popular placements.
