Dragon tattoos have been popular for a very long time, partly because of the fact that people in the orient have been tattooing for a long time, and because dragons have always featured prominently in their mythology. A dragon symbolizes a number of things, from wisdom and strength to courage and mysticism, which is why it’s the perfect type of tattoo for a wide variety of different people. If you’re thinking about getting dragon tattoos, there are a few things to keep in mind.
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that a dragon tattoo is not something that you’re going to want to get a small tattoo of. This is because dragon tattoos are meant to be large. They require a great deal of detail work, especially with the scales, and that’s not something that you can do if you have the tattoo designed extremely small. You’ll run the risk of not only being unhappy with your tattoo, but also of feeling as though you’ve got a worm tattooed on you instead of a dragon.
Another thing to think about when you’re looking into getting a dragon tattoo are colors and location. With other choices like heart tattoos, this isn't as worrisome. However, the colors and the location of your dragon tattoo are extremely important. When it’s put in the right place, a tattoo of dragons can enhance the natural contours of your body. When put in the wrong place they just seem out of place. And color is also important. Some colors go well with dragons, like jewel tones, but it’s a good idea to stay away from yellows and oranges, as they tend to not look very good when they’re tattooed on the body. Dragon tattoos can be a very masculine type of tattoo to get, but women, don’t be afraid to get one if you want one, as they are beautiful no matter what skin they’re on.
