Bird tattoos are becoming more and more popular, and the hummingbird is one of the most popular of all. Hummingbirds live in the Americas—as far north as Alaska and as far south as Chile—and have been portrayed in Native American legends, literature, folklore, and mythology, where they are often used as a symbol of love. They are also strongly associated with the Aztecs, whose royalty and religious leaders wore feathers and dead hummingbirds around their neck in small bags. The Aztecs believed dead warriors were reincarnated as hummingbirds. Trinidad and Tobago are known as the “the land of hummingbirds.”
