“#1 Japanese Dragon Tattoos Gallery Pick”
Dragon is one of the few mythological creatures known in all four corners of the world and they inhabit the myths and legends of many cultures, ancient and modern. This makes dragon tattoos some of the most popular designs around the globe, with no other design known to make a more distinctive statement.
The Japanese follow the Chinese zodiac very closely, and it is not uncommon for people born in one of the Dragon years to get Japanese dragon tattoos.
Devotees of video games and anime might also be inspired to get a dragon tattoo – shows such as Dragon Ball showcase dragons and their mythical powers. The video game series Dragon Quest features many interactions with dragons throughout the games.
Whether mythical or modern, the dragons represented in tattoos from Japan will always have three toes, as well as being intricately swirled and snake shaped. Additionally, Japanese dragons usually have wings and a horned mammal’s head (such as a goat).
The style and look of the dragon can often determine what the person might wish to represent. For example an evil looking dragon that is bearing his large teeth and surrounded by flames and wrapping around a large sword would obviously represent power, strength and the warrior spirit. Where as a dragon that is depicted in a scene above a large body of water or in the clouds in flight might represent peace and beauty. The Japanese dragon also represents the meaning of freedom and being fearless, both very attractive qualities.
There are a wide variety of different tattoo possibilities with a dragon. But you should consider that a huge amount of people see the same free designs as you. So if you want original Japanese Dragon tattoo designs, it is recommended that you check out sites or other sources of tattoo designs that are not freely available. I have checked out a Japanese dragon tattoo gallery on the internet that has more than 4000 different designs, so you will have no trouble finding what you want.
