Funny how Owls mean death everywhere except North America.

I've heard that the owl when heard hooting in your backyard means there will be a death in the family. I have heard 2 owls hoot in my backyard and I've had 2 people die shortly after I heard it. I think it's a Native American thing. I am from US and partly Native. So I have heard it mean death as well.

Any halfways competent tattoo artist will be able to do a cute little owl like this. All I did was re-draw a photo that a client brought me. Do some google searching for cute owls you like, take those photos to a tattoo artist whose work you like, and ask them to draw you a cute little owl. Tiny little tattoo like this won't even cost you all that much- unless the artist you go to is price-gouging, haha.

Hmmm...I'd actually heard that the other way around. Something about it being somewhat unnatural that they fly around at night. I'd actually heard what you said applied to Crows/Ravens. (With the Crow being somewhat equivalent to Loki of Norse myth) Shrug, I suppose it really depends from tribe to tribe. Lakota hold the wolf in pretty high regard while Navajo saw them as evil familiars (ala black cats)

Cute tattoo none the less... :thumbsup:

Owl is also a "mascot" of the greek goddess Athena, who is the goddess of wisdom, skill, colleges etc. I doubt that it is only the north americans who are alone in thinking they mean something other than death....

What do you mean "mean death" ? I've never heard this before, please tell. :)
Love the look on the owl too, especially the highlights and it's expression.
