One thing is certain, the flamingo makes a memorable impression, no more than in the form of a tattoo.
Contrary to popular Western perception, the flamingo carries a surprisingly significant context. An exotic entry into the ancient Roman festivals (although it is better to forget it), the inhabitants of ancient Peru adored the flamingo and represented it in much of their art; it is also the national bird of the Bahamas. And let’s not forget the infamous croquet scene from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”, in which the flamingos served as unusual croquet mallets.
Even the origins of the flamingo’s name are worth noting; in portuguese and spanish, the word flamengo means “flame color”, while the latin greek form translates to “blood red feathers”.
Wherever your inspiration in the flamingo is rooted, a tribute to tattooing is the ideal way to express your own atmosphere and your vision of life. Ultra-mod or in the Victorian vein of “Alice in Wonderland”, the pink flamingo is a timeless testimony of the man who opens his own flame-colored track, and is not afraid to stretch his legs and strut with pink when the party calls for it.
