11 Hummingbird Tattoos Ideas & Templates


Hummingbird tattoos are a great choice of tattoo but what kind should you get and where should you get it? This article will give you 5 great ideas as well as telling you the meaning of this tattoo.

Hummingbird Tattoos Meaning

Before we talk about the many hummingbird tattoo designs available, let’s first find out what the hummingbird means in the first place.

Compared to other animals, the hummingbird does not have anywhere near as much mythological status. Nevertheless, it is considered a symbol of love and even of the supernatural, by some cultures.

The meaning is less important with this tattoo. Aesthetically, the hummingbird is very beautiful and among the most beautiful of all birds. There are several hundred different types, all in vibrant colours so it is not difficult to see why so many people like this type of tattoo.

Hummingbird Tattoo On Hip

Compared to other feminine tattoos, the hummingbird is rarely featured on the hip. If you want to try something different and unique then this could be a good tattoo idea for you.

Hummingbird Tattoos On Foot

Again, this is not as common as say, stars, as a tattoo idea for the foot. I have seen at least one tattoo of this type that features an orchid or other flower and the hummingbird hovering next to it in an inquisitive way.

Hummingbird Style Tattoos On Shoulder

This is one of the most common locations for a hummingbird. Although a hummingbird is dynamic, it has a static appearance to it because it hovers in the air.

For some reason, this seems to make sense on a back of the shoulder tattoo. The shoulder is pretty much the perfect height and shape for a tattoo of a hummingbird.

Tribal Hummingbird Tattoos

Tribal hummingbird tattoos are not as popular as detailed, coloured ones. Part of their elegance is in their simplicity. With hummingbirds generally being drawn small (close to scale), a tribal tattoo of a hummingbird can be constructed from as few as ten lines.

Be aware that one of these tattoos may not obviously appear to be a hummingbird. If you are worried about the opinions or comments of others then you may want to avoid a tribal style hummingbird tattoo.

Hummingbird Wrist Tattoos

Being as small as they are, a hummingbird makes for a great choice of tattoo subject for this location. If you want to be creative then you could consider getting a flower done on your other wrist so that, when you place your two wrists together, the hummingbird will appear to be drinking the nectar from the flower.
