The rising Phoenix bird symbolizes the ability to rise above a troubled life and represents victory over death. For example, we all go through rough patches in our life. We all go through troubled times andwhen we do, we usually seek a new beginning. The Phoenix tattoo can represent this in tattoo form. It can be there to remind you of your strength to overcome trouble in your life. #[KW]
Since there is now a massive scar where I was planning to put my next tattoo, I need to come up with something new. And, I've come to be made up of scars and flaws over the last few years (physical and emotional), and it's hard to accept, but that is who I am.
