The phoenix is a mythical bird from Greek and Roman mythology that lives for over a thousand years before it dies is a show of flames and is reborn from its own ashes. Symbolizing resurrection, the sun and various other popular ideals – many of which are focused in Christianity – the phoenix is one of the most popular mythological creatures ever depicted.
Nowadays a lot of people like phoenixes more for their eye-catching artistic value than anything else. A fiery immortal bird can be quite a powerful image, which you’ll see in many of the tattoos featured in the gallery below.
