What does a Phoenix Tattoo Mean?

Phoenix tattoos symbolize rebirth as well as resurrection. It is a firebird that originated from Greek, Egyptian and Phoenician mythologies. Some people recognized it as a mythological bird but are not aware of its story. Generally, this creature is believed to have lived for a thousand years at a time. When the 1000 years have ended, it will make a nest with twigs and burn it including itself. After the burning is done, a new phoenix will arise from the ashes. This will occur after three years and this new creature will have a life for another 1000 years. Sometimes this story is amended depending on the place where it came from.  However, there is only one moral of the story which is – the phoenix will rise again and again.

People love phoenix tattoos because of their beauty and symbolic meanings.  They want this tattoo inked on their side and back. It is also adorned by several celebrities.  Melanie C (aka Sporty Spice) is wearing a big phoenix tattoo on her upper back.  Melanie Brown or Mel B (aka Scary Spice) is also sporting a phoenix tattoo on her right shoulder. However, the most controversial one is Ben Affleck’s phoenix tattoo on the back. Phoenix designs are also used as a part of Yakuza tattoos.  Which phoenix tattoo is your favorite?
