In ancient Greek mythology the phoenix serves as the symbol of rebirth. At the end of its immensely long life cycle the bird builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs, and immolates itself in the fire. From the ashes rises up a new young bird, to live again, thus achieving immortality. A very popular tattoo design with people who have had lives filed with change and loss, the Phoenix can serve as a constant reminder that through spirit we are invincible.
