People get tattoo dragons for various reasons. They get them because they represent power and might and sometimes they get them just because they look very cool. But, what many people don’t realize is that the dragon tattoo means different things in different cultures. A dragon tattoo from Japan represents balance. The dragon is seen as a creature that is able to balance the Yin and the Yang of life. If you get this type of tattoo, you could be trying to find balance in your life. This is great for people with a hectic life because all they have to do is look at their tattoo and they can find balance. The Chinese believe dragon tattoos symbolize wisdom and good will, which is how the ancient Chinese saw their dragons as. Getting this tattoo symbolizes good will in your future. There also are Celtic dragons that are thought to bring order to their kingdom. This is similar to the balance of Japanese dragons. In ancient Celtic times, they would depict dragons sitting on thrones, which represented how much power they had obtained. However, the tattoo dragon in the picture is representative of the Western view of dragons. In the West, the dragon is viewed as a fearsome beast. Thus, this tattoo would be associated with raw aggression and might.
I have seen plenty of tattoo dragons. I have seen them from every culture in the world. But, this one is a little different from what I normally see. Usually I see only a single dragon in a design but this design incorporates two tattoo dragons. I don’t know why someone would get two dragons but I am well familiar with the single dragon designs and their meaning. Tattoo dragons are one of the most popular mythological creatures. The descend from various legends, telling tales of fire-breathing, winged creatures. There are three different tattoo dragons that you’ll commonly see- the Eastern, Western and tribal tattoo dragons. The Eastern dragons of the orient are seen as benevolent creatures who are the protectors of life, fertility, and good fortune. The Western dragons tend to be the evil creatures that destroy villages and guard hoards of treasure. The tribal tattoo dragon can be affiliated with either of the two previous styles. As a tattoo, dragons are usually represented in the form of the Eastern dragon and of oriental styles. Dragon tattoos are normally seen in black and commonly drawn with flames and fire. But, Japanese and Chinese dragon styles are usually pretty ornate and can be in color or black and white shades.
