The only problem with palm tattoos is that they fade very quickly. But I like this tat a lot. Cool!

That is very cool, I've a trail of ants up one of my arms and that always gets comments, I'm sure this gets lots too.

I'm curious what the inspiration for this is? Mind telling me :)

no singular inspiration as such...the customer wants a religious-themed sleeve including clouds, sun-rays and birds (amongst other things). Due to certain restrictions we chose to get the birds down first, and because they are so small I thought that silhouettes would be most effective, as opposed to any detail.

There was no reference / inspiration or stencil for the placement - we just sat down and talked about where they might look best. I've done a few similar designs recently so am getting the hang of the motions! it's very similar to depicting leaves blowing in the wind....nature has both form AND random elements ;)

hope that answers your question

I was curious because it had reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven. That's why :)

The Raven? You don't need permission. Poe has been dead for quite some time. In fact, since 1849. Guy was a Gothic Romance writer.
