What is tattoo Tuesday about?

January 29, 2013

With a nod to the Super Bowl, this week’s Tattoo Tuesday features Ravens.  I am from Cleveland and here we have long memories, so the Ravens are definitely not my team. (See Cleveland Browns relocation controversy.)

I did, however, find some interesting tattoos that feature ravens, a bird that figures prominently in both Native American and European myth and folklore.

Here is more about corvus corax at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

  1. I am fond of Raven. She can’t help it if the rival team chose here. She is pretty tricky.. as I’m sure we will see on Sunday. Go 9ers!


    • I, too, am fond of Raven – in every other context!
