Ideas for tattoos like this one (pic)?

I absolutly love this tattoo:

I just love the simplicity, the fact the wings follow the hip bones, and the overall almost L-shape of the animal :)

It would be inappropriate for me to get this exact tattoo - cause it has no meaning to me - so does anyone have an idea of what I could get. That roughly fits that shape and its simplicity :) ?

(I do like the idea of some type of bird .. I was considering 2 paper peace cranes - in the same place - as these have more of a meaning to me. But they are not really the right shape? What do you think of the peace cranes also?)

    I love it as well! Just not the pterodactyl part but I know what you mean. I wouldn't do paper cranes though, it wouldn't work. However a crane probably would, they have quite a long wingspan..and you could do it a bit more abstract like this one http://th09.deviantart.net/fs7/150/i/2005/230/4/e/... but then of course with the right shape in order to frame the hips. Lovely idea but it is difficult. Anyways, hope that was somewhat helpful!

    edit: actually you could do a bat..but i don't know, kind of strange. Or a butterfly.

    edit edit: hehe i keep getting more ideas because i decided to draw it on myself for fun. Tree branches or a rose branch or something would also be pretty.
