The dragon with its great wings and long tongue is a popular mythical symbol across cultures. The Chinese regard the dragon as a symbol of good fortune. You often see the dragon inked with graceful curves, much like a snake. The sensuous curves of the dragon inspire many beautiful tattoos. The bold lines and geometrical patterns of tribal art enhance the rich look of dragon tattoos. Many people get a tribal dragon inked on their upper arm, back, foot, or the side of their body.

The shape of the dragon often depends on the location of the tattoo. On the upper arm, a vertical design dragon or the one that is coiled looks graceful. Broad ink strokes in a tribal pattern, give a powerful look to the spine of the dragon. Artistic curves often add an intricate touch to the wings of a flying dragon tattoo. You also find the dragon inked in long curvy designs on the upper back. Dragons with symmetrically inked wings are popular in back tattoos. The lower foot looks graceful with tiny dragon tattoos. Dragons inspired by tribal patterns, usually feature rich flowy designs in black. A flash of red on the eyes and tongue looks fiery in a tribal dragon tattoo.
