You have a lot of freedom when it comes to where to place your feather tattoo. Because of the flexible shape, you can get away with placing your feather tattoo just about anywhere on your body.
The most common places for a feather tattoo is along the rib cage or on the back. This connects the bird’s feather to the idea of growing your own wings.
In addition, bird feathers are also common on the upper arm and thigh.
Pro tip: Depending on the complexity of details your tattoo will entail, the size of the tattoo will need to be modified. Meaning, if you want an elaborate feather tattoo design, you might need to get a bigger one – which won’t fit on a finger, or your wrist. In that case, you’ll probably have to go for a back tattoo, or a leg tattoo. If it’s a small line work, with little details that you’re after, check out the small tattoo ideas and go for it.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with the placement of your bird feather tattoo!
