Eagle is the longest living bird with a lifespan of 70 years. However, to live that long, the eagle has to go through a painful process of rebirth when it turns 40. This process involves breaking its beak against a very high mountain peak and then plucking its talons and feathers with its new beak. The process, though excruciating, enables to extend its life by 30 years. Hence getting an Eagle inked would be a great tattoo concept.
