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.
SCO: I'm becoming interested in spinal tats. I like the scroll effect here; actually, would prefer all scroll, no phoenix.
