Phoenix Tattoos : Sign of Rebirth

Sunday, February 6, 2011


The mythology of the phoenix probably originated in India, someplace the immortal bird is called Garuda. The Garuda has the body of a crowned man with wings and an eagle's bill.

The ancient Egyptians had an extra entitle used for the phoenix: Bennu, aka "He who came into being by himself". The myth goes with the aim of the bird formed itself from a burning holy tree. The Bennu is invented to be the soul of the Egyptian Sun God called Ra. The Egyptian phoenix looked like a heron.

Sign of Rebirth

Phoenix tattoos are symbols of new beginning and resurrection. The phoenix is a mythological firebird originating in Phoenician, Egyptian and Greek mythology.
Most fill with are aware with the aim of the phoenix is a mythological human being, the exact story is often quite fuzzy though.
Indoors broad-spectrum, the story is with the aim of the bird lives used for 1000 years (or 500) by the side of a point.  Upon the conclusion of the 1000 years, it creates a nest made from myrrh undergrowth and burns the nest, as well as itself.  Once the burning is complete, a further phoenix rises from the ashes once 3 days, to live used for an extra 1000 years.

The story itself is often modified and altered depending on the area someplace it originates from but the moral is each time the same, the plan of the story is to provide evidence with the aim of the bird does in actuality get to your feet again.
