Wings Tattoos

Flight has always fascinated mankind and has sparked myths, stories, and legends of people reaching spiritual levels that allow levitation and the invention of devices that allow one to glide freely among the clouds. Wings in a way symbolize the desire to transcend and liberate ourselves from the constraints of our environment. Often time wings also have a theme of spirituality and divinity to them and incorporate motifs of heaven and angels. They can also depict a more demonic set of wings or even show one angelic and one demonic to show the darkness and the light that resides within us. In the Air force getting a pair of wings is a great honor and is like a rite of passage. When humans look at the creatures that can soar high above we think of their freedom and independence which is something all people yearn for.
