Flamingos are seemingly everywhere we look. Their unique shape and bright pink feathers make them a popular choice for artists and designers alike. When it comes to tattoos, flamingos might not enjoy the same level of popularity as say owls or butterflies, but they far from obscurity. From watercolor works to dotwork designs, flamingos can make for some pretty spectacular works of art. Here are a few of the best flamingo tattoos we could find.
