Dragon Tattoo Designs, Pictures and Ideas

Dragon Tattoo Dragon tattoos are often used as a symbol of strength and power. They can also be an emblem of spiritual and magical qualities. These are very good reasons why the dragon is one of the best known mythological creatures around the world.

One of the things that make dragon tattoos so desirable is their colorful and bold designs. There are so many different ways to depict a dragon; it is easy to get creative. There are two designs that are seen most frequently. The first is the Western dragon — which has a thick, scaled body; bat-like wings, and a long neck. The second is the Eastern dragon — though still scaled, it has more of a serpentine body and generally does not have wings.Dragon Tattoo designs

The Western dragon is most commonly used for its mythological history rather than for a deeper meaning. However, they can occasionally have a deeper meaning, such as the Celtic ‘circle of life’ dragon — which is meant to represent the cyclic nature of life. They can also show pride in nationality. An example of this would be the red dragon, which is the national symbol of Wales.As for the Eastern dragon, it is more than a large, snake-like creature. These dragons illustrate the elements of fire, wind, earth and water. They can have far reaching implications, being neither good nor evil, they often represent the forces of nature, which can be both beautiful and brutal.

Although most dragon tattoos are colorful, they can also be done in black and shades of grey. Black and red is another great option, and is frequently seen in tribal tattoo Dragon Tattoos

Given the protean nature of dragons, it is possible to create a variety of scenes and a variety of creatures. One fascinating design is the koi fish dragon. The koi being a sign of masculinity, wisdom and longevity, is said to climb waterfalls and at the end of its trek, is transformed into a dragon. This design can be simple and show a creature featuring attributes of both a dragon and a koi fish, or they can be intricate and depict the journey between fish and beast.

The backdrop of dragon tattoos can be just as diverse as the dragon itself. Flames, flowers and symbols of peace are frequently used. However, you can tell a story with a landscape. A medieval castle; emerging from a cave, or a Japanese woodblock-type background with rippling waves, mountains and colorful skies.

Feminine Tattoo Designs, Pictures and Ideas

Feminine Tattoo

Femininity can mean different things to different people; definitively speaking, femininity is a certain whimsical softness; to others it may mean a quality of female elegance and style, to others still it can have a more modern meaning of strength and power. Feminine tattoos are an artistic depiction of both a certain amount of delicacy and the firmness that goes hand-in-hand with getting any piece of body art.vine Feminine Tattoo

The beauty of feminine tattoos is that there are endless possibilities when it comes to their symbolism and significance. Flowers, hearts and small creatures such as butterflies and ladybugs are all very popular in feminine tattoos, as they can be both dainty and profound in meaning. Placement also seems to follow a pattern for these designs; some of the favored areas include the small of the back, below or around the bellybutton, and placed squarely upon a shoulder.

It is not unusual to see feminine tattoos that depict birds or wings. These are often meant as an expression of female empowerment, — or a woman ‘taking flight’ — while maintaining its girlish charm. The wing design is generally large, and can encompass both of the shoulders and most of the upper back; though, they are occasionally seen in a much smaller version, and placed on the ankles or wrists. Although broad, heavily feathered white wings (such as on a dove, or even angel) are favored in this style, it is not unusual to see bolder colors, or even butterfly wings. One idea would be to create an intricate butterfly wing with eyes. This can easily be used as a symbol of protection and freedom.

Lower Back Tattoo Designs, Pictures and Ideas

Lower Back Tattoo DesignsIn the latter part of the 1990’s, lower back tattoos became all the rage, and for good reason. The location is one of the most sexy and feminine parts of the female body, and gives you the choice of keeping it secret in a conservative style of dress or letting it show with a casual style, such as a crop shirt and hip-hugger jeans. The popular V shape that most tattoos on the lower back display gives balance to the art and further flatters the already curvy shape of a woman’s body. The showing of the lower back is often thought of as a way for a woman to exhibit her confidence and sex appeal. Adding lower back tattoos further accentuates the effect, making the lower back an excellent place to display the art that expresses both the secret and sensual qualities of a woman’s personality. In some religions, the lower back is believed to be the residence of the Kundalini, or coiled energy, and in others, the Shakti, which is the female aspect of the universe. Both of these beliefs are just more reasons that the lower back is a wonderful place to showcase a special tattoo.

When it comes to lower back tattoos, or any tattoo for that matter it is wise to consider whether you would like there to be meaning behind the art, or if you are just looking for something to express your personal style. If meaning is important to you, here are some suggestions to help make the process of choosing a design a little simpler:flower Back Tattoo picturess

The flowering lotus is one of the most popular designs for lower back tattoos. With its, buds, flowers, and pods, the design has come to symbolize the past, present, and future. Incorporating the lotus with a sanskrit or tribal design, the symbolism of the flower is showcased by your personal style while creating a balanced, symmetrical tattoo.

The Kundalini, which was mentioned earlier, is referred to in yoga as our inner snake-like energy. For such reason, the snake makes an excellent choice for lower back tattoos. Another way to express your energy within may be a design incorporating the Minoin snake goddess. When centered, then paired with furling vines, the design makes a statement of both strength and femininity.

If you are looking for a design that is merely an unframed image, a presentation of an eagle spreading its wings is one example that would suit such a request. The extended wingspan would keep the desirable V shape that is so popular for lower back tattoos, and the eagle is known as the symbol of courage and desire to explore the unknown, making this image a solid choice for the independent and daring woman.cherry blossom tattoos

Another thing to consider when planning lower back tattoos is the size. Take into account the type of image you have chosen, and how bold of a statement you wish to make. Designs with lots of color will be much bolder than those of a grey scale, so you may want to choose a slightly smaller size to avoid the possibility of the tattoo appearing overbearing. Yet be cautious of choosing a design that is too small, as this may broaden the appearance of your back. It is your personal decision on what is right for you when choosing between the many options for lower back tattoos

Body Piercing

Body  PiercingDeana's Triangle Piercing Experience: October 1978, a shopping mall in rural Michigan: It's 2 days before my 16th birthday, and so excited as I'm finally allowed to have my ears pierced! We mark the holes...and BAM...the gun pierces my left ear. I scream an unearthly scream that the whole southwestern portion of the state can hear and shake my head, holding my ear and running around in a circle like a rabid dog. It takes my support crew almost an hour to convince me to let them do the other ear. This one didn't hurt so bad, but I jerked and they are crooked. After 2 months of infections I remove them.

Summer 1985, the back room of a night club I'm working at in Fairbanks Alaska: Another gun, another dot of ink...this time in my left nostril. After wedging the gun painfully into position by boss comes in and sees what we are up to and asks me what I'm doing. I excitedly explain (with the gun in my nose) I want a diamond chip just like the one I glued there for Halloween last year only real...she says, "Oh that's good, and if you pierce your lip with a bone too, you can attach them with a chain and look like a Ugandan!" ...I didn't get the piercing.

December 2002 in San Jose California: I'm 40 years old and I just got off the phone with my boyfriend who has big multiple piercing in his ears, his nipples, and several tattoos. The first man in my life to have these unique play toys attached to or decorating his person. He's 6'4", 240lbs., big, scary, and takes care of dying people in their homes. He requires a body that big to hold his heart. We have discussed my aversion to piercings and pain in general a few times in the 2 years we have been together. The most pressure he ever exerted on me was to tell me he thinks I'd be so sexy if I got some small bars in my ears and explained that my terrible experience was because they used a gun and it causes unnecessary bruising, pain and swelling. I told him don't hold your breath because I would never deliberately subject my self to feel pain and I'm afraid of needles. But the seed was planted.Body  Piercing

Anyway, back to the story. I was talking on the phone with Roger, he had a new piercing done on his eyebrow in my absence. I told him about a girl at work who had her nipples done, and he wistfully sighed over my unadorned state, and admitted he never had a girlfriend who had any piercings, but he kissed a girl with a tongue ring once. Well that somehow set me into action and I thought to myself, I'm in California, just up the road from San Francisco, where there all kinds of piercing experts. I'm thinking Roger made a few noises about my ears, but we know what he really wants done now don't we? Part of my reluctance was not wanting one of Roger's friends at home in Alaska to do it. I do internet searches and discover [this site's] very informational explanations of different kinds of piercings and it is [this site's] picture of the Triangle that inspires me. (Note from Karen: the picture she is referring to was actually a link to a page on ) I go to San Francisco and hang out at a coffee shop where I see lots of pierced and tattooed people and ask them about their piercings and where they had them done. I go back to my computer and do a search on some of the places they talked about. I called 3 of them and made a connection with Tom's voice at Gotham. He explained he has been specializing in female genital piercings for 8 years and the type of piercing I want is tricky. He didn't promise me I could get it, just that we would examine me to see if I was suited for it.

I made an appointment for that Friday. We talked for over an hour and he told me other stories. He has lots of couples come in together and due to the sexual element of genital piercings, many people choose to have them done at the moment of orgasm! I was too nervous for that and Roger wasn't with me, and I want to make it clear he didn't make me feel like it was required or anything like that, it's just how a lot of people get off. I explained the piercing itself was what I dreaded, I wasn't interested in the "pinch" or needle insertion, which is what many people get a sexual charge out of, but that the pretty jewelry adornment was my goal. He was very understanding of my fear and just asked if I really wanted to do this. I said yes and we began the examination process to see what I was suited for. tattoo artistHe was very pleased with my anatomy and recommended I go with a 10 gauge straight bar. Only one other woman he'd pierced had this and he was happy to be able to do another one. All the other Triangles he had done were with curved bars or rings because they didn't have enough room for a bar. I said ok and we began the preparation.

He used a forceps to hold me in place in case I moved and very lightly rubbed my clitoris to help me relax. He asked me if I was ready and as I began to say "yes", it turned into a "YeOOOOOwwwwww" and it was done! The pain was gone, we took a few pictures with the needle inserted (if you want one) and then placed the jewelry. I went back a week later to have a smaller bar put in as we used a slightly longer one in case of swelling, which there was none of.

Two weeks later I had the balls on the ends replaced with Cubic Zircon I ordered and I'm so pleased with it! I have decided to extent my stay in California and Roger is joining me at the end on the month. We plan to go back to Tom where Roger and I will get his first piercing below the belt together. I'll let you know how both piercings work with 2 people if you want! I want you to know that it was [this site's] information that inspired me and that is why I sent [my] pictures as I'm not in the habit of sending my private parts off into cyber space. But the few other pictures I found were of poor quality, and if my story or pictures inspire other women I'm glad to be of help!
