Dragon has been a symbol of masculinity and majesty for centuries with a history dating back to the ancient Europe and China. Many who are looking for more masculine-leaning tattoo designs often pick dragon tattoo designs for a regal look.
Here at Prinker, we have dragon tattoos for women and men in a huge range of art styles so you can pick one according to your preference!
Have you ever noticed the difference between the two types of mythical dragons, the Eastern ‘龙 long’ dragons and Western dragons?
Eastern dragons have a characteristic snake-like appearance with tiger paws and deer antlers. They are typically ‘water spirits’ known for summoning rain, bringing prosperity to the lands. In ancient China, the dragon design was only reserved for the Emperor’s robes and could not be worn by commonfolk- without societal restriction these days, enthusiasts love dragon tattoos for their aesthetics and symbolism.

On the other hand, you might be more familiar with Western depictions of the dragon, usually evil and breathe fire like the iconic Smaug from The Hobbit, terrifying creatures with spines, rough scales and bat-like wings.
Western dragons are found in Slavic and Russian myths, depicted as malevolent creatures in illustrations from the Middle Ages. Fantasy novels and TV shows often include them as villains guarding a secret treasure that the main character is looking to retrieve! You may recognise these dragons from the popular TV show Game of Thrones (design by Prinker Korea, available in Prinker Content Platform).
