The tiger occupies a very important place in the world of tattoo designs. Be it for the sheer grace, the combination of golden and black, or the majestic stance, a tiger is celebrated in cultures the world over. In ancient spiritual belief, the tiger is a symbol of energy and power. All these aspects of the tiger come together in a Tiger Tattoo design that celebrates the wild beauty of this animal.

As a beast that prowls the thick jungles, a tiger has no match in sheer physical appeal. This quality comes out in many tiger tattoos. The sensuous arched back makes a fantastic combination with green eyes. Bold lines combine with rich detailed depictions of fur. Often you find tiger tattoos showing soft padded paws or paws with the claws bared. An attacking tiger is full of menace and aggression. Many tattoos depict the tiger in a leaping posture. As a motif of natural grace, dancing tigers are also inked in many designs. The form of this stunning big cat is combined with different elements like lotuses and green leaves to create beautiful patterns. The effect of a tiger design is often electrifying due to the mixture of golden and black in the design. The stripes create wonderful drama against the golden fur of a tiger. It is fascinating how the same animal can be used to showcase both subtle grace and ruthless violence, by playing with the composition. A ferocious tiger can be depicted with a wide open mouth and sharp teeth. A tiger on the back of a woman can be inked with soft curves, molding to the natural contours of the feminine form. Whether drawn as a full tiger or just the large head, a tattoo based on this magnificent animal is sure to draw eyes.
