Eagle With Flag

by Glenna Garcia on February 21, 2011

As it is President’s Day in the US – thought this was a fitting tattoo to feature for today.  As you know, the eagle is an enduring symbol of strength and beauty.  The image here does justice to the true natural beauty of this amazing bird of prey as well!  The detail in the feathers is precise, even and meticulous.  Really nice shading on the body and the feathers on the wing that is more in the background.  The white accents make the eyes and claws very fierce looking!  Which is nice contrast to the soft and flowing feel of the flag that it has clutched in it’s talons.  Great placement of the flag more behind the eagle, as the colors really set off the grays and black of the bird.
