35+ Cool Dragon Tattoos

Dragons have been a part of several cultures throughout history. From European mythology to ancient Chinese folklore, the dragon has always been there to enthrall lovers of fantastic creatures. People in Chinese culture worship the dragon in hopes of rain and good harvest weather. The dragon is considered a representation of supernatural powers in Japanese culture.  In most Asian cultures, dragons represent a mixture of strength, power, courage and wisdom. In contrast, most European folklore portrays dragons as evil, destructive creatures that must be destroyed.

A dragon tattoo can be just as rooted in looks as in symbolism, however. Many people get tattoos of dragons just because they look cool. There really is no arguing with this logic because dragons do look amazing. As mythical creatures, their appearance is open to interpretation, which means there are endless possibilities. This free range also allows for a variety of colors and shading.
