When it comes to choosing a tattoo design, dragons, for men are the most poplar of all mythological creatures to be picked. Dragons are usually shown as wise, powerful and free. Dragon tattoos for men symbolize power, courage, wisdom, strength and protection. Men, in the historical period were considered to be the guardians of their loved ones and so were the Eastern dragons. They usually look like the serpents with powerful muscular bodies, four strong legs, a head shaped like a wedge, sharp pointed teeth, elaborate ears, horns, spines running down their backs and a tail like a rudder. They had large wings which helped them to fly up high altitudes.
