The big bad cat of the Asian jungles, ravenous yet dangerously beautiful in its ferocious glory, finds a place of pride among all tattoo lovers. People who believe to have character traits of a tiger portray it through their tiger tattoos. This tattoo is masculine in nature but, of late, has found a female fan following. The most famous and beautiful of all tiger tattoos is the Royal Bengal Tiger of India drawn on the body. The Siberian White Tiger also finds a place of glory in the tattoo world.
Tiger tattoo scores pretty high in the list of animal tattoos and has been a part of the fashion world for a long time now. The orange and white Royal Bengal Tiger is a bit of a contrast to the black and white Siberian Tiger, but both are equally and absolutely beautiful. The tiger tattoo has its origin in Asia and finds a place of honor in the Chinese and Japanese cultures. Supporters of the endangered tiger also feel proud to brand themselves with a tiger tattoo.
Tiger tattoos are portrayed in various forms – within a jungle, sometimes the whole body, sometimes just the head, and sometimes a baby tiger also. The two most common meanings related to a tiger tattoo are of strength and power. It also signifies beauty, courage, independence, passion and pride. On the flip side, it has negative connotations of revenge, danger and punishment also.
