Teenage girls have been known to have an affinity for the winged eagle.
But what is a teen girl’s tattoo of a winged bird tattooed on her thigh?
And can you still get one?
Tattoos of the wing-footed eagle are common on many teenage girls’ bodies, according to research.
However, it is not known if they are real.
This month, researchers from the University of Queensland asked 5,500 teenage girls aged 15 to 17 from around the country to share their tattoos.
The girls, who had no prior tattooing experience, were asked to look at their tattoos on their body in a mirror, while they watched a movie and a conversation in the background.
The study found that the majority of girls who were asked if they had winged birds tattooed onto their thigh had tattoos of an eagle on their thigh.
However only one in three girls had wings tattooed to their stomach.
Tattoo artist and tattoo artist Emma White told news.com.au the number of teen girls getting tattoos of a bird tattoo was very small, but it was growing, as people wanted to be more creative with their tattoos and their body.
“A lot of young girls are going to go for it and get the bird tattoo.
They’re looking for a unique look, a little bit of flair.
They want to have something special on their legs,” she said.”
They’re going for something different to the ones they have, so they’re definitely not going for the same look.”
The researchers found the wing tattoo was seen more frequently on the thighs of girls aged 13-17.
“They look at it as a bit of an accessory, but they also see it as something that they can wear to their wedding,” Dr White said.
The tattoo of the eagle tattoo is usually done with a pen, and is usually painted with white or black.
However, some of the girls who got the eagle tattoos were asked why they had it done.
“It was a pretty personal touch to them, so I guess it’s just something they’ve always wanted,” said Emily.
“I guess they thought it was a cool way to show off their legs.”
Dr White said a lot of girls got the tattoo because they wanted to.
“One of the reasons why they’re doing it is to show their support to other girls,” she explained.
“For some girls, it’s a way of showing their support for other girls or just showing them who they are.”
Dr Whites study, conducted between June and September, found that more than one in four girls were able to get a tattoo of an ostrich on their leg, and a wing tattoo of peacock on their abdomen.
She said it was not clear how many girls got an ostrach tattoo on their knee, but she believed it was more common in girls who have had surgery.
“This is an area that is relatively understudied in the tattoo industry, so it’s something that we really need to get more involved in,” she told news,com.com,au.
“We need to make sure that more girls get this.”
