The Meanings of Feather Tattoos

What is the idea behind Feather Tattoos?
In general, tattoo designs that include feathers can have a deep meaning or can simply be chosen for their aesthetic effect. Women, who choose this design, do it because they probably want to express their Native American heritage or they mean it to represent freedom and spirituality.

The symbolism behind feathers is connected to achieving a higher spirituality and ascendance to a different state. Native American tribe leaders wore feathers in order to display their role of communicating with the Great Spirit and to express their wisdom. The culture of the native tribes also used the symbolism to represent nature’s great powers such as air, wind or the might of the thunder gods.

In a different part of the world the Druids used feathers to create their elaborate robes. The symbolic meaning of these robes was useful during the Celtic ceremonies carried out to communicate with higher beings and to learn to understand the spiritual world. The feathered robes were supposed to help the Druids transcend the ordinary world. Along with the presence of the sky gods, the robe allowed its owner to become a part of the ethereal realm.

Ancient Egyptians also believed in heavenly beings and often expressed their presence with feather symbols. In the underworld, the Egyptian goddess of justice, Ma’at, used feathers to determine the cleanliness of the newcomers’ souls. Weighing their heart against a feather would show her whether it was worthy.

Christians understood feathers as symbols of virtues. One of the most recognized is the image of three feathers, representing charity, hope and faith, mostly used on rings. Christians wore signet rings like this to symbolize a virtuous soul. In addition to this spiritual use they also served a more practical use – as a wax seal. To enclose a letter, the ring was dipped in warm wax and then pressed onto the paper documents to connect the folds. When a recipient received a letter, he would know that the letter came unread by anyone else and could be sure of the authenticity and virtuousness thanks to the original three-feathered symbol.
