The dragon is a revered symbol in the â€œcounty of the rising sunâ€. According to the Japanese mythology, the dragons are water gods who reside in ponds and water bodies. They are associated with wisdom and knowledge and the Japanese worship them for good luck and fortune. The Japanese dragon tattoo uses this holy symbol as design. The tattoos exhibit the serpentine, wingless mythological creatures with small claws and horned head. It is widely sported by people of all age groups on different body parts. It can be seen in various forms from black and white to colorful.
The Japanese dragon tattoo is inked with other motifs and insignia too, like flowers, clouds and flames. The size of the tattoo is mostly kept large, especially, by the men because the dragon looks more dynamic and formidable in that form only. However, women and even some men go for the elegant, small pieces. They have a dainty and cool look. Dragon tattoos have an amazing and superb dazzling effect on the eyes of the onlookers. To get a look and feel of how these tattoos look after getting carved, we take you to this post which has 25 designs showing the Japanese dragon in various poses and colors. Enjoy.
