Dragon Tattoos

Dragon Tattoos
Dragons in the west are often portrayed as being malicious villains that need a specially skilled person termed the ‘dragon slayer’ to rid the local people of the havoc and destruction that the dragon is creating.

Many people choose to ink western style dragon tattoos and its wearer usually wants the tattoo to suggest that they too like their dragon tattoo is a force to reckon with, who when threatened or provoked can demonstrate the same destructiveness, resulting in their enemies essentially burning to ashes.

In the east however, especially in china and Japan, there is no other creature that is ranked higher than the dragon, even human beings are secondary to a dragon.


The dragon in the east is known as the most potent symbol of good fortune in the enormous pool of lucky animals in Chinese and Japanese symbology. It is the guard of one of the world’s four directions and represents new beginnings.  Prosperity, everlasting success and unimagined recognition and wisdom are listed among the dragons arsenal of qualities.

Dragons have an imperial status and is an exclusive emblem for royalty. Eastern dragon tattoos would fundamentally call to mind all these attributes. When a child of royal blood is born, well wishes would say ‘May your son be a dragon’, meaning that he shows al the qualities of this mystical serpent. Your Dragon tattoos in the same respect, can strengthen your association with the creature and you will eventually become all the things that the dragon stands for.

Eastern dragon tattoos are a lot more colorful than their eastern counterparts, and wear a neutral facial expression compared to the more fearsome looking eastern dragon. However I have seen a number of tattoos that are a blend of both eastern and western dragons and therefore symbolizes both cultures and their respective meanings.

Dragon Tattoos On Clouds

Clouds were the vehicle for the gods and a motif for celestial mobility. Clouds were revered in the Chinese and Japanese culture as they were the bringer of rains which was the life force for all living things. When you combine a dragon with clouds you add more weight and value to your tattoo, as clouds and dragons make for a fantastic emblem to manifest positivity in your life.

Dragon Tattoos With A Pearl


A pearl is often depicted with the dragon. The pearl is meant represent the dragons wisdom, following on from the term ‘pearls of wisdom’. It is also believed that the pearl is a representation of the moon and the moon feminine energies associated with it, while the dragon has masculine energies associated with it. Dragon tattoos with a pearl are a display of balanced male and female energies.

Dragon Tattoos With A Phoenix


This is a hugely popular tattoo design. As already mentioned the dragon represents the highest level of masculinity and the phoenix represents the highest level of felinity. In the hierarchy of important creatures in Chinese and Japanese culture, the phoenix is only secondary to the dragon. A phoenix is the epitome of high virtue, grace and fidelity.

A dragon is known as the yang, and the phoenix, the yin. Together they represent the perfect union and paint a very wholesome picture. A dragon and phoenix tattoo display the best of both worlds. They also make for great couple tattoos. A dragon inked on the mans body and a phoenix inked on the lady’s, may tempt fate into making the couple’s relationship as everlasting as that of the dragon and phoenix.
