Eagle is the longest living bird with a lifespan of 70 years. However, to live that long, the eagle has to go through a painful process of rebirth when it turns 40. This process involves breaking its beak against a very high mountain peak and then plucking its talons and feathers with its new beak. The process, though excruciating, enables to extend its life by 30 years. Hence getting an Eagle inked would be a great tattoo concept.

Dr DAD (Daniel A D'Auria MD) posted a photo: The evolution of birds has led to animals that can accomplish some astounding feats. There are birds that fly unimmaginable distances for migration, birds that live almost their entire lives at sea, and others that can break speed records that most cars canʻt attain. The Northern Janana, however, has a record breaking feat of itʻs own, and its feat is in its feet! These birds have the longest toe to body size ratio of any bird in the world. Large…

The bald eagle is the longest living bird on earth. The story of its life might just fascinate you. Especially the decision it has to make in its forties in order to continue living.

Handcrafted Feather Epaulets. Cut out 2 oval-shaped pieces of black felt. Hot-glue feathers in layers atop each oval felt, starting with the longest and finishing with the smallest. Angle the feathers out as you work. Hot glue a hair clip on the bottom and attach onto shirt. A nice alternative to a full-on costume.
