In ancient Roman culture the fascinus (winged phallus) was an avatar of the divine penis. it was no wonder that the early T&P Community, which was primarily (but not exclusively) made up of gay males, adopted the symbol as a popular tattoo design.
Visually it exoticized the pubic area, and when designed correctly made the wearers penis to appear longer. Typically it was brightly colored bird wings, but as the wings got more popular variations such as bat and dragon wings would occasionally show up. Alan Oversby- aka Mr. Sebastian- was a driving force in the upswing in Fascinus tattoos and was listed as the artist responsible for the tattoos in this photograph which originally ran on SPC in 1998.
The photos came to me from the collection of Rudy I, a long time body modification fan.
