Dragon Tattoo Design 2011

Dragon are a classic choice for a tattoo design. Dragons are depicted as powerful and free.Because of their ferocious appeal, dragons have been depicted by artists throughout history in a wide variety of forms. Todays tattoo designers and illustrators have taken the art of the dragon to amazing new levels. Whether you want a traditional dragon tattoo or one with a cutting edge modern look you will find an incredible gallery of amazing images.
Size is a great way to display the mood of your dragon tattoo design. With the long tail and sharp claws it is easy to wrap these parts of the dragon around an arm or across the back. Keep all this in mind when choosing a design.Color is very important. Choose reds and blacks to depict anger, blues for peace, gold or yellow to infer wealth and greens to invoke nature. There are variations on these colors such as metallic (silver, bronze, gold etc.) but these are difficult to ink.

The other style of dragon is the eastern dragon design. These dragons are usually quite different from the western design. They are more serpentine like, with large heads, generally absent of wings, their feet are more lion or mammal like and mostly incapable of breathing fire. The eastern style dragon's demeanor is depicted to be basically the opposite of the western dragon. They are supposed to be kind, light hearted, smart animals with good intentions. When selecting this style of dragon you should consider color, length, and the number of claws.
