Dragons have been in our myths and legends for centuries if not longer. The nearest living creature that could provoke such stories are large lizards like the Komodo but the origins of the Welsh dragon and the story of St. George (patron saint of England) go back 1000's of years to before these animals were discovered outside their native Indonesia. The dinosaurs were an obvious contender for the source of the myths although they died out millions of years before there were any humans to create legends but the similarities seem too great to ignore.

Design to tattoo

Feel free to print the design you like and take it to your chosen artist for them to copy. Typically a trace or outline will be made of the picture which will be transferred to the place on your body to be used then the outline will be made permanent and then the color applied if required. For more information see our advice and after care section from the main navigation bar above.
