There is probably no design more masculine then an eagle tattoo. These designs are sported on everybody from firemen and soldiers to bikers and lawyers. I don’t know what it is about these designs but they do seem to scream out, "I’m a man!!" And there are a variety of eagle tattoos that are available for the average guy, whether or not your the rough and tumble type. One of the most popular eagle tattoos is the eagle bust. It’s simply the head of the eagle drawn with one eye staring back out at you.

But, there are other designs too. There is the U.S representation of the eagle, which is usually inked with stars around it and an American flag. Sometimes this type of eagle is shown with a olive or holly branch in one claw and arrows in it’s other claw. This shows the duality of this bird as both a symbol of peace and also one of war. My favorite depiction of an eagle tattoo is right here in the picture. It shows a naturalistic version of this bird. It’s soaring high above the world, it’s razor sharp eyes looking for it’s prey. It’s a great eagle tattoo.

Depending on what you want the eagle tattoo to signify, it can mean a variety of different things. Many people view it as a symbol for the United States Surprisingly, though it wasn’t the first choice for thw United States. Several people, including Benjamin Franklin thought that the wild turkey was a better symbol for the new government. Can you imagine a turkey as the national symbol. Thank goodness, that common sense prevailed and the eagle was chosen. You see, an eagle tattoo is a symbol of courage, strength and might. And that’s because of the unique characteristics of this amazing bird.

The eagle can soar higher and see further then any other bird on the planet. No wonder it’s so popular nowadays. The eagle tattoo in the picture is a perfect representation of this glorious winged creature. This is an eagle tattoo "bust" but the person could have also done other design elements. They could have designed the eagle tattoo flying trying to catch it’s prey or in a stationary position, such as perched upon a branch. Or the artist could have done the United States eagle, complete with arrows in one hand and olive branches in the other. Then a motif of stars could be placed around the border of it.

There are many different eagle tattoos available to someone looking to have this proud and graceful bird inked upon their skin. There are Celtic style eagle tattoos and even ones that have a cartoon appeal to them. But, the most popular type is the bald eagle tattoo. The eagle is a popular icon for many different people. Some people even get an eagle tattoo to show off their service that they have performed for their country. Especially if they were in something like the military. The eagle tattoo can also be a spiffy way to show off a person’s personal patriotism, if they are American of course.

If you get an eagle tattoo try to get something that is not too racy. I think that more inspirational, and some would say corny, designs actually look better then something someone gets for street credits. And that is usually the case but the artist decided to take it up a level with a tribal edge to it in this picture. The eagle tattoo in the picture is tribal but it’s done in they style of the American bald eagle. See how it appears to be soaring majestically above it’s prey. I believe that the artist did a wonderful job in combining the American style eagle with a tribal design. It makes this tattoo all the more unique to the bearer.

This looks like the logo from the movie The Eagle Has Landed. Notice the claws on this eagle tattoo, they are bad to the bone my friends. Razor sharp talons ready to attach themselves to someone’s bare skin, now that makes for a killer tattoo. I have a buddy of mine that rides cycles and everything he has in his house, and everything in his garage has something to do with eagles. He is a crazy man about those birds, he has this huge eagle tattoo on his back that is probably the biggest eagle tattoo I have ever seen.

It covers his whole back from top to bottom, and from side to side. When this dude takes off his shirt at one of these bike rallies he goes to, the crowds scream and raise their fists in honor to the eagle. It is a sight you have to see to believe it. My buddy also got his wife to get an eagle tattoo on her ankle, it is pretty nice also, pretty much like this one, but with some great colors added in. She wouldn’t go for the back tattoo like her husbands. I do like this eagle tattoo, very plain but leaves you with that radical edge feeling to it.
