Lion Tattoo

The lion, the king of the jungle, the one animal you don’t want to upset. Lions though the ages are known for their strength, courage, protection and leadership.

The main job of a lion is to protect and defend his pride.  A lion tattoo convey ideas of masculinity, bravery and raw animal instinct.



A Roaring Lion Tattoo


When it comes to a tattoo that conveys raw aggression, I can’t imagine anything that would top a roaring lion tattoo. Lions are generally social creatures and do not engage in fights for no reason, they will only fight when there is something worth fighting for.

So when you see a lion roaring, you are warned of the impending danger, the lion is saying back off of ill take your face off, literally! I once on a safari,  saw a lion and was about no less then 3 meters away from it, and he let out a gentle roar, and I’m not joking when I say, (pardon the language), I shitted myself. The depth and the vibrations that that gentle roar was capable of producing was incredible. I can only imagine what a full on roar would sound like. So a roaring lion tattoo with its face pulled back and teeth on full display conveys sheer aggression, annihilation and even death. Such a tattoo would be fitting for anyone who wants the world to know ‘don’t cross me, it will get messy’.

A Lion Tattoo Gazing Into The Savanna


There are many lion tattoos that depict a more calmer and serine side of the lion. It’s the face of a conqueror that has been through many battles and survived and it’s this state of the lion which truly shows him to be a king. He is at peace, he has preserved and vanquished. His gaze reassures his followers know that all is taken care of, all is under control. A gazing lion tattoo simply tells the onlooker, ‘I am king’.

A Lioness With A Lion Tattoo

Like the saying goes, a king only bows to his queen, and rightly so because the lion is incomplete with out the lioness. The lioness in many regards is indeed the lions better half.

She is the huntress responsible for feeding the pride and also rearing the future kings. A lioness and lion tattoo will make great choices for both men and women. It is a tattoo that recognizes the important of companionship and partnership.

I have come across many playful tattoos of both the lion and lioness and also tattoos with their cubs to represent family.

One of my friends has a tattoo of a lion family, with two cubs, representing their two children and underneath reads ‘David’s Pride’. Cute, right?

A Simba Lion Tattoo


A lighter and a more fun lion tattoo option is that of Disneys, Simba. A samba lion evokes he same principles as that of a lion, but does it in a more subtle and sweet way. Many samba tattoos are of the drawing that Rafaki (the baboon in the lion king) make to remind Simba that he was of royal blood and in line to be king. Never forget who you are were his words to Simba who had strayed off line. So many people choose this drawing of Simba and the words ‘never forget who you are’ inked near it.  It is easy to see why this is a popular choice as it serves to remind people what they have been through and what stand for.
