Hello people! :)
If you follow my posts you are probably familiar with me talking about tattoos and how I like them, well I'm looking for a lot of meanings of some tattoos and I want to share the one I find really interestinh with you guys. Today I found the meaning of the Bluebird Tattoos.
I fell in love with Bluebird Tattoos when my friend from USA got one with the lines "wings were made to fly, not to hide a fragile spine" I just love the tattoo so much, and those words are from Alexander Deleon, a great guy with a big heart, so I decided to fo and research about the meaning of the Bluebird.
Here it is what I found: " A bluebird relates, firstly, to sailors. 5,000miles at sea would be represented with one bluebird, then 10,000 with another and so on.. When a bluebird was seen at sea, it would mean that you were close to land. Finally, sailors would believe that if your ship went down, a bluebird would fly over and carry your soul to heaven. Through the years a bluebird has come to relate to luck, and ultimately happiness. Hense, The Bluebird of Happiness. Sailors would tattoo them between the thumb and forefinger, they'd flap the birds wings by moving their thumbs, so all their worries would "fly away"
I just love the meanig of it, it has to do with travel, something that I love to do and ii also has to do with hope, something that, in my opinion, every human being needs to have in order to go through life.
I love the idea of getting a Bluebird tattoo, maybe this is the one i will finally get?! We will see, until then I will continue looking for some more meanings :)
What do you guys think? Do you like the meaning of the Bluebird Tattoo? Would you get one?
let me know!
