No matter what your choice, nothing hums of such delicateness and strength as a hummingbird tattoo design.

Hummingbirds are some of the most beloved of all bird species. With their wings beating rapidly and diminutive size, they can stay suspended in the same position for a long, long time. As one of the smallest birds in the world of birds, they are extremely popular with bird watchers and bird enthusiasts as are hummingbird tattoo designs with body art enthusiasts.

Organized groups all around the United States hold events where they band hummingbirds to follow their life and hopefully learn more about their habits. In North America, there are seventeen different types of hummingbird tattoos. By far, the most common of the species is the Ruby-Throated Hummingbird.

Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Tattoo Designs

This little creature gets its name from the male's plumage. A male has an emerald green back, gray flanks and a very distinctive iridescent ruby red ring of color around its throat. Females, who have a larger plumage than the male are characterized by an emerald green back, white breast and throat and some white wing tips.

The average length of this species is about 3 1/2 inches and it weighs about 3 1/2 grams (1/8 of an ounce). It fits in somewhere between the tiniest member of the hummingbird family, the Amethyst Woodstar and the largest, the Giant Hummingbird tattoo design (about 8 grams). An intensly inquisitive bird that easily adapts to a human presence, it is easy to attract them to your bird feeder.

They like the color red. These birds fly at a normal speed of about 30 miles per hour but can reach speeds of 50mph when in escape mode. In a full dive, speeds exceed 60mph.

Misconceptions about Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds hitch rides on the backs of larger birds when they migrate. Absolutely false, it might make a good story, but hummingbirds are very capable of flying great distances on their own.

Hummingbird tattoos are a cross between insects and birds, again, completely false. Although they may be almost as small as an insect, genetically speaking, they are all bird.

Hummingbird body art designs have no feet. Not true, all birds have feet. Humming birds just don't use them for walking.

Hummingbirds never land, another misconception that must be debunked. While they seem to fly around or hover in mid air, put some birdseed in your hand and they will land and eat.

Other bits of information about the Ruby-Throated Hummingbird that you might find interesting include a body temperature of between 105 and 108 degrees fahrenheit, and a heart rate of 1200 beats per minute when feeding (250 when at rest).
