On the Streets: Put a Bird on It, or at least a Feather.

bird tatoo

Have you seen Portlandia? Oh my, I love that show, but mostly in retrospect…. like Napoleon Dynamite, at the time I thought it was a cool movie, but for years after I still say “Sweet” and “Idiot”… Portlandia has much the same effect on me, only now it’s “Cacao” and “Put a Bird on It.” Anyway, now I’m looking out for all things feathered. No not pigeons, bird tattoos, feather print , feather jewelry. You name it. I love the sentiment adding something we’ve adorned ourselves with for centuries, like bird feathers never gets old. Just like comedy snippets from nerds on TV.

The bird tattoo is amazing - I can’t even imagine sporting ink like that. Love the feather ring - I can see Olivia Palermo wearing it. =)

I thought the feather hair trend was stupid until i saw it in real life, and it actually looks really pretty. Feathers are so romantic and earthy, and feather tattoos are so delicate, I love them.

I love the feather hair extension trend! I had three in my hair my hairdresser put in. I also went to a fly fishing shop and purchased several inexpensive ones to make some DIY hair clips. ♥

The tattoo is amazing. I can’t get enough of feathers lately. I have just bought myself a feather headband and some feather earrings

Our Feather hair extensions, are the latest way to create visually stunning effects,colours, and patterns by using natures high lights.
Each feather hair extension, is made from a collection of 5-7 feathers , ranging from “7 14″ in length (always several long feathers per bunch)
Feather-your-heads extensions are a hand selected combination of the best grade feathers attached using an adhesive, and are fitted using the Micro loop method.(micro beads and fitting sheet included)You can style your hair wearing these fabulous natural additions , Wash, blow-dry, curl, and even use straighteners on them .

Love the ink! I am a lover of tattoos and a owner of 6. I adore feathers as well…Such a delicate yet beautiful and strong meaning.

At first I thought that was you with the bird tattoo and I was like “I didn’t peg Jennine for a gal with an all-over back tattoo!” Haha. I adored the ring; absolutely amazing.
