This is my tattoo of a loon. I grew up in Muskoka, Ontario and recently moved to Toronto to pursue university. Muskoka is known for it’s natural beauty and it’s something I always took for granted growing up. These days, I’d give anything to be leaning off the edge of my boat, in the middle of the lake, watching the sunset, and hearing nothing but the calm water, frogs, and beautiful loon calls. Done at Yonge Street Tattoos in Toronto, ON.
The Native Symbol or Totem the Loon: A solitary bird of the wilderness, the Loon symbolises tranquility, serenity and the reawakening of old hopes, wishes and dreams. The Loon relies on water and water is a symbol for dreams and multiple levels of consciousness, therefore Loons teach us to pay attention to our dreams, wishes and hopes. A Legend says that to see a Loon is a symbol of a dream come true or an answered wish.
