The dragon is a «classic» tattoo motif, popular with both men and women. As a tattoo design the dragon shows the profound influence that Japanese and Chinese culture have had in Western tattooing for nearly two centuries. In the Far East, the dragon represents the Four Elements — Earth, Wind, Fire and Water — and the four points of the compass — East, West, North and South — and dragons are simultaneously a symbol of Water, Earth, Underworld and Sky. The dragon is a culturally far-ranging character whose apparent bad temper should be interpreted as simply amoral, neither good nor evil. The forces of nature are not human-hearted, representing as they do the cycle of life and death, followed again by birth and renewal. Nature nurtures and nature destroys. So too, does the dragon.

The word «dragon» is derived from the French and Latin form of the Greek «draku», linked with «derkomai», meaning «to see» and interpreted as «sharp-sighted». The equivalent English word «drake» or fire-drake- is derived from Anglo-Saxon «draca». (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1959.)

The dragon tattoo design symbolizes nobility, magic, the power of transformation and imagination, perseverance, loyalty, power and the ability to transcend the ordinary. For those who conquer dragons, the dragon represents courage, bravery, duty, honour and the great quest. And who amongst us has not sought out a great quest that will reveal the very best of ourselves? Such is the extraordinary power of the dragon.
