There are a lot of Japanese tattoo designs available, and one of the most common models is the Japanese dragon. It is considered a classic when it comes to tattoo designs. This dragon is usually drawn as a wingless, snake-like creature with a lot of scales and small-clawed legs. Its head has horns, and it is most often associated with the heavens or the clouds.
The Japanese dragon is more slender and rarely flies than the Chinese dragon.
The Japanese dragon can change its breath into clouds which may produce rain or fire. Its ability to expand and contract its body is potent, and so is, its power of transformation and invisibility. These descriptions are the more common ones, but Japanese dragons have a lot of characteristics that are very distinct from the animals of the animal kingdom.
Japanese dragons also differ from their Chinese counterparts is that the former has three claws and that the latter has five.
There are so many tattoo designs of Japanese dragons in any tattoo shop nowadays.
Galleries of Japanese dragon tattoo designs showcase a lot of drawings where you can find what you want a full back design or a half sleeve design. They also vary in color, and you may choose whatever color you like. Japanese dragons may also appear with white clouds, pearls, sea waves. A gem represents a very expensive treasure-wisdom.
