Eagle tattoos

Tattoo artist: Dr.Ink, Atka Tattoo, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

This majestic bird has long been a symbol of Spirituality, Wisdom, and Power. While it is most commonly associated with the United States, the Eagle as a cultural representation has been around for thousands of years. 

From as far back as the days of ancient Greece, eagles have been seen as the embodiment of masculine Strength and Virility. The Greek god Zeus, known for his numerous trysts with mortal women, was often associated with the Eagle and the animal itself was usually depicted carrying the ultimate symbol of Zeus, a lightning bolt.
