When selecting a lion tattoo, most people go for realism. Maybe you want regal looking lion or one in a thunderous roar with teeth on full display. The skill of the tattoo artist will determine the final beauty and realism of your skin inked lion.
Tattoos reasonably scalable, and lion tattoos are no exception. The lion tattoo can be a few inches across, or take up your entire back. Even then, the tattoo can be the whole lion or just its head. It is up to you to decide on a particular design and size.
For lion tattoos, simple designs are possible. A monochrome lion is effective, but the best lion tattoos use a wider palette. Within the detailed design, the extra colors fill in the eyes, mouth, teeth, mane, nose, and coat of the lion.
There is also the option of placing the lion within its natural environment—the Serengeti of Africa or a jungle scene. Limited only by imagination and artistic skills, the intricate tattoo lends definition and life to your lion. Colorful backgrounds like this help the lion tattoo appear more prominent.
As with all tattoos, the cost is directly proportional to the size, number of colors, and intricacy of the design. Therefore, you should be able to estimate the cost as you check out different tattoos. You may want a large tattoo of a fierce lion in a jungle background, but be prepared to shell out the cash for it.
Lion tattoos are an excellent way to convey a sense of power because they are the kings of the jungle. Assuming you have the right design and right tattoo artist, you can proudly display your fierce and strong nature. You’ll have good company, as kings and royalty have long used the lion as a symbol of their noble status.
