Top 10 Galah Tattoos

 

We’re not done with cockatoo tattoos just yet!

A bird of many names, this pink and grey coloured cockatoo species is more commonly referred to as a galah Рa named derived from the Yuwaalaraay word gilaa.  Since their introduction to Tasmania, galahs are now found all across Australia.

To refer to someone as a galah is to say that they’re an idiot or a fool. The phrase “flaming galah” is synonymous with the character, Alf Stewart on the Australian television soap opera Home and Away.

Wanting a galah tattoo doesn’t make you a fool, but choosing the wrong tattooist or copying the tattoos below sure will!
