Hello everyone!

Im new here, i was looking for a Polish symbol and ended up on this forum. I want a tattoo that represent my Polish heritage.. I know the most wellknown symbol is the white eagle, but its not very femine..

Anyone who knows an other Polish symbol? Thanks a lot!!!

White eagle is the most obvious one.... what part of Poland are you from? Warsaw... mermaid with a shield perhaps?

A Polish Symbol but the shell if anyone looked at it would probably never be recognized or thought of as Polish.

How about the Mermaid Syrenka and check this foto.....using only what is inside the center circle and also rather than having it round change the lines of the circle to look like a banner keeping and not changing the inside of the circle. Or since you are from Olystn then use the shell in background with the mermaid forward.

This nutshell isn't Polish symbol. ;) Syrenka is much better.

The eagle has my vote :/

Polish girls are too tough to be feminine ;)

I want to see all you tatoo affisionados in your latter lives when the skin hangs over your tatoos.

The good thing is we'll all soon be dead after that happens so it won't matter.
