According to Chinese mythology, the phoenix is the symbol of grace & virtue. Second only in importance to the Dragon. It represents the union of yin & yang, & was a gentle creature associated with the Empress, who alone could wear its symbol. In Japanese tattooing the phoenix is often twinned with the dragon, symbolizing yin & yang, the harmonious combining the best of feminine & masculine virtues. A phoenix is supposed to represent rebirth, resurrection, immortality & victory over trials.

Tattoo - although this is listed as one of the 10 best dragon tattoo's, I actually believe this is a phoenix. In some cultures the mythology states that the phoenix is the female version of a dragon.
