Birding tattoos

This is where I present a collection of cool birding tattoos. Send me a mail if there's one you'd like to add. The variety of bird tattoos is large - from accurate representations of favourite species to more stylised renditions.

Tattoos are generally accepted in mainstream society these days, but some employers still consider visible tattoos unprofessional. Law firms and law enforcement often enforce a no tattoo policy, so it is unlikely you would ever meet a Dayton lawyer with a visible tattoo.
