Healed Enough For Pics

Dragons used to be part of life in many cultures. In Chinese culture, people worship dragon for rain and better weather for good harvest. An Emperor has great power as he’s considered as the incarnation of dragon. In Japanese culture the dragon is also a symbol of supernatural powers. That’s why dragon tattoo is loved by most of oriental people. For them, dragon represents strength, courage, wisdom, protector of their loved ones.

In Western cultures, dragons tend to be portrayed as embodiments of evil that destroy villages and guard hoards of treasure. In modern fantasy literature, dragons are often depicted as friends of man and as highly intelligent and noble creatures.

  • Im joing

  • Hello,

    I was just looking for dragons for my boy and I have found your site. Congratulation, all tatoos are works of art even though I desagree with this practice on a so big skin area (postural tests have showed that tatoos create disorders of stability)

    Best regards.

  • There is absolutely NO correlation between tattoos and stability. None, zero, nada, zip, squat, etc… No double blind studies have been enacted, no individual studies have shown more that a minimal connection and then in only 3 patients. 3 patients is not a measurable group and in NO way does it lead any scientist to believe in a connection.

    What a load.
