Lion Tattoo Designs

Lion tattoos are extremely powerful designs, with two primary meanings. The first comes in the fact that the lion is a beautiful and magnificent animal. The second meaning reflects the personality of those wearing the tattoo design, showing their pride or strength. The lion has always been known as the king of the jungle. However, certain designs can have even more specific meanings.

Types of Lion Tattoo: Lion tattoos come in many forms, and may include different poses as well as either the head or the full body of the lion. Choosing a tattoo of a roaring lion is a way of showing your strength to the entire world, where some will choose to get a lion resting to show a less obvious, inner strength.

These designs are also perfect as a way of representing the courage to stand up for what you believe in. Tattoo designs can be refined further by choosing an adult lion, a lioness or a cub. Sometimes designs are combined with other animals as a sign of peace between different species. Whatever design you choose, it’s important to find a tattoo artists who understands the subtle differences between each type of lion.

When it comes to more elaborate designs, lions are more suited to savannahs rather than jungles. However, they can also be combined with less realistic images and vibrant colours for larger pieces. For those who want a smaller, simpler tattoo then a lion’s head is often the perfect choice.
