A woman’s fragility looks so sweet and delicate next to an eagle! A black and white tattoo, this one is mighty, fierce and proves a point. Not only what looks powerful, is. Strength may also come from within and endurance as well. I’m saying that because side-boob tattoos hurt a great deal.

The double-headed eagle has an even stronger significance than the one with just one head. It refers to honor, strength and dominance. It is said that it has actually existed in Iraq and was brought to Europe too. Regardless of the truth, it makes an awesome idea for a chest tattoo for men, with or without color. I believe the reference to the third eye is personal, although eagles are supposed to be messengers of the gods.

In order to understand this beautiful chest piece, you should think of the symbols of the snake. It is a creature that tempts people by awakening their sexual passion, vindictiveness, and vengefulness. So, the eagle is trying to fight it for wisdom and morality to win, not passion and vengeance.

Sometimes only seeing such powerful symbol may give you strength.
