: Psico Design ep. 28 : FEATHER

FEATHER, the hidden meaning in a tattoo 


in this short article of the section “PSICO DESIGN – the psychology of the drawings” we address the meaning and symbolism of the FEATHER from a mythical or primordial point of view, to apply it in the portrayal of the tattoo


Anyway, we speak of fairytales that make us dream, there’s no time for science here


The prefrontal cortex has no ground here, we move within the emotions of the limbic brain or the instinct of the reptilian brain 


THE FEATHER speaks of “letting go” …


we place a feather in a tattoo to give a feeling of soft but also melancholy freedom


when you find a dropped feather, it means that the little bird that owned it let her go


it took off a burden


or maybe it was snatched from a sudden clash, it depends


it could be a choice made on its own, because the feather needed to be changed or it could be a trauma that detached the feather from it


but in any case, now it’s missing a piece of itself who, wanting or renting, let it go on its way, far away from him 


however, this void somehow lightened it to make it fly better and lighter and created the place for something new


if you want a feather on you tattoo, it means that you may have let some people,  opportunities, prejudices, vices or happy moments go….


the feather symbolism speaks of melancholy for something that is no longer with you, but at the same time, it leaves room for the arrival of something new 


with love,
