The dragon is an intricate part of tribal lore and belief in China. The stories and legends woven around the dragon are many, and they tell you about this powerful mythical creature with a snake-like body and great wings. A dragon is considered a symbol of great luck among the Chinese, and tattoo artists create gorgeous designs with tribal motifs to depict this legendary Chinese creature. Magic, power, and mystery are all part and parcel of the aura of a dragon, which is why Tribal Dragon Tattoos are so immensely popular.
Tribal designs are known for bold and simple patterns made with flowing strokes, and many tribal dragon motifs have these patterns in common. Often you find the dragon depicted with scales and shown in an ‘S’ shape that looks really amazing in a tattoo design. You also find dragon tattoos showing this magnificent creature with its head raised and wings opened out for flying. From dragon faces inked with masterful strokes, to winged dragon forms, to designs showing a dragon with a mouth open and fangs bared, there are many creative dragon tattoo designs. The strength of the tribal design comes from the single color ink, usually black that is used by the artist. Often a touch of red in the eye looks more stunning in the maze of black lines that makes up the form of the dragon.
