Many people throughout the world are fascinated by Chinese culture, and some choose to get Chinese tattoos that reflect the Chinese culture or style of art work. One very popular image in Chinese culture is the dragon. In contrast with Western cultures, Chinese dragons are thought to be good omens and have domain over the elements of air and water. These more peaceful dragons are thought to be a sign of prosperity and good luck.
Chinese lettering tattoos are also very popular images for tattoos. Instead of writing out a word using letters as we do in English, each word has a different, unique symbol in Chinese. Because the intricacies of Chinese writing are so detailed and difficult to master, it is a good idea to get any ideas for Chinese writing tattoos double-checked by a professional or native speaker.
