When it comes to blackbird tattoos, it’s common to see flocks of them all displayed in the same tattoo. Why? Because blackbirds ALWAYS group together as part of their survival instinct.
Also, blackbird tattoos often use a very thick, deep, completely black color scheme. You may see blackbird tattoos combined with abstract art as an extension of the bird itself. It may look smudgy, or feature a blurring pattern of black that slowly fades out.
While similar to crows, blackbirds are much smaller. But in tattoo design, Crow / Blackbird tattoos look quite similar, so you might mistake them for each other.
