Myths and legends have always been a popular inspiration for dragon tattoos designs. They are powerful, magnificent, and awe-inspiring—not to mention they can breathe fire!

As dragons are a mythical creature they can take any shape, style or color you wish and be adapted to any part of the body.

On the opposite end of the spectrum was the Western Dragon tattoo, found in European countries such as Russia.

This mythological brute had a nasty reputation for stomping out tiny villages (and tiny villagers). To add insult to injury he (or she) would then gather all the treasure they could find and stash it away in a dark cave somewhere—think Gollum, only really— really big and with the ability to extinguish your home with an errant sneeze.

Large dragon tattoos work well for men, so capitalize on prominent features such as broad shoulders, big biceps, and strong calves. Let the imagery add to your power and mystique… in other words, if you’ve got skinny legs, draw attention away from that area by strategically placing your tat on a more favored body part such as a shoulder or forearm. Dragon tattoos on men add to their mystique and can be extremely edgy and sexy—especially if you incorporate their fire breathing powers in to your design.

Just because men like to get it on with dragons doesn’t mean that women can’t own these powerful beasts too! Dragon images are extremely sexy on a woman’s body because these powerful creatures tend towards a masculine depiction. It is as if a woman has conquered the beast, trapping them on her body.

In legend there are two main kinds of dragon.

The Eastern Dragon, found in Chinese culture, was generally viewed as a benevolent beast that protected people from harm. These dragons provided water—without which everyone would die.

In short, the Western Dragon was probably not the best of friends with the western people… or the Eastern Dragon.
In terms of which type of dragon to get tattooed on your body, people usually opt for the Eastern Dragon, commonly known as the Chinese Dragon.

f you are a man considering getting a dragon tattoo, location is everything.

You have to be sure you are wearing the dragon - that the dragon is not wearing you.

These magnificent mythological beasts are commonly incorporated into tattoo flash designs and are used on men and women alike, as they are one of the few mythical creatures that work as both a masculine and a feminine symbol.

Larger dragon tattoos work well on a woman’s back, with their wings stretching out to cover the shoulder blades. There is nothing more exciting than breaking out your tank tops and camisoles in the summer; finally being able to reveal elegant wings spread across your back.
