With the “Feather” trend taking flight in the fashion and accessory world, Getting the ultimate feather accessory – A Feather Tattoo – is a sure way to stand out in a crowd of feather hair extensions and earrings. To the wearer, Feather tattoos can generally carry a deeper meaning usually representing Native American heritage, freedom and a guided spirit.  They symbolize thought, intellect and the higher mind because feathers (birds) are associated with air, the skies, and the heavens, thus  making a connection with dreams, inspiration, spiritual ascension and higher intelligence.
