Birds are quite common when it comes to tattoo designs, as different birds signify different characteristic traits.

Human beings often get bird tattoos to be able to express their own personality through these birds. For example, a parrot may signify its ability to communicate as they can very well imitate human speech, lovebirds would symbolize compassion and feelings and all the while providing a beautiful palette to the skin.

A parrot tattooed on the skin would be a symbol of love, compassion, vitality, energy, freedom among many other positive qualities. Macaws are parrots of one kind, so we would look into parrot tattoos as well. One can also get a lovebird tattoo if they want a parrot tattoo but smaller and cuter. Lovebirds are compassionate creatures, full of affection for their partner, and they stay with their partner almost all the time, and that would be a lovely parrot tattoo design for a couple to get. Many cultures consider parrots to be very sacred. their ability to mimic make them important in Hindu culture. We can think of Kamadev, the God of love and desire, who is accompanied by a Parrot, where the parrot is like a vehicle to Kamadev. Parrots also have a long life span, hence parrot tattoo would be a great symbol of a long healthy life, full of bright and bold colours and your innermost self would come put in the open with these parrot tattoo designs which you can have on your back, or hands or anywhere you want it to be!
