This dragon tattoo is done in the ancient tribal art, one of the oldest forms of tattooing known to man. Also referred to as ethnographic art, tribal images and representations date back thousands of years ago, and are often ceremonial or religious in nature.
Our dragon tribal tattoo design represents a mythical creature with a complex and elaborate history, which has been portrayed in legends, mythology, and folklore for centuries. The dragon is an emblem of complete mastery and control, that traditionally symbolizes potent and auspicious powers. Even the elements of fire, air, earth and water succumb to the wishes of the dragon.
Although possessing similar physical characteristics, the way dragons were perceived differed drastically between Eastern and Western cultures. In chivalric and Christian traditions, dragons were believed to have an untamed nature, and were seen as a symbol of evil, chaos and destruction. When it comes to Oriental cultures though, dragons were seen as a good omen, harbingers of incredible wisdom, strength, and hidden knowledge. For the Chinese people, dragons are not just part of their folklore, but are still considered to be one of the most potent symbols of good fortune, prosperity and high achievement.
In our modern society, tribal dragon tattoos are a popular choice amongst men and women that are looking for an image which is universally recognizable and has a deep meaning.
