For centuries, lion tattoos have been venerated because of their exemplary designs and positive meanings. Known as the king of the jungle, those who have tattoos of lion perceive themselves as ‘royalty.’ While they are not exactly blue-blooded, these tattoos broadcast to the world that they are at the top of their game. Another trait that is associated with lion tattoos is self-confidence. After all, lions are poised creatures, and are very assured of their skills and instincts. Other words that can describe lions are vitality, glory, courage, spirit and strength. Of course, with lion tattoos, the most common styles involve pictures of lions. Designs range from the face of a lion alone, to the entire body. Truly masculine, this tattoo is perfect for your chest, back and arms.
Because of the virility of lion images, adjustments can be made for them to fit the female body. They can be drawn smaller, or represented by the Greek symbol for lion, in order to complement the softer features of women. If you find ‘lion tattoos in solitude’ rather boring, they can be drawn against a beautiful landscape to show their natural habitat. You can also place them next to other strong animals to show your courage and physical potency. With the different modifications you can add to tattoos of lions, you can end up with one that is unique.
