Eagle Tattoo symbolism:

  • Native American symbolism: the eagle is also a symbol to Native american people. As you probably know, the eagle feather is sacred for some Native Americans. That’s why probably plenty of Native Americans get eagle tattoos, feather tattoos and related tattoos.
  • Hindu mythology: the eagle is found in the Hindu culture also. Take for example Garuda – used to have an eagle beak. The legend says he was so big, he could even block the entire sun. While this is not true, the legend is interesting. I just love how ancient people used to think/use the eagle symbol so much.
  • Greek mythology: Do you know that the eagle is the symbol of Zeus? Other symbols of Zeus are: eagle, bull and oak. And probably more. You probably don’t know, but the eagle is also the symbol of various cities, like Libby. Most important, the city is also called the “city of eagles”. There are plenty of eagle sculptures around the city.

Eagle Tattoo Placement ideasacross shoulders, on your arm, on your back (so called – back piece), on your forearm, on your leg, on your stomach, on your upper arm, etc. One important thing – before getting a tattoo, make sure you really want it. If not, just don’t get it. Most important – it doesn’t have to mean something for someone else. It should be important for you. Do you feel like an eagle?
