What’s in an Asian tattoo? Very commonly, Asian tattoos depict the Chinese astrology, the Japanese warriors, swords, women, and other figures to that effect. Dragons, geishas, and lotus flowers are also associated with these types of tattoos. Even Chinese and Japanese alphabet and symbolisms are used for a tattoo.

One reason for the popularity of Asian tattoos may have originated from the Yakuza and other underground organizations in Japan. Note that these are very powerful and fearsome groups in the olden days. Those who belong to these organization are duly marked with a tattoo for identification.

In China, tattoos are mostly drawn on the bodies both for their aesthetic appeal and spiritual meaning. China is a country that is strongly influenced by religion and beliefs. They even have their own methods of healing. All of these are the factors why they choose a particular tattoo on their bodies.

Regardless what Asian tattoo design you pick, drawing them on any part of the body is possible. Dragon tattoos are mostly found on the back, arms, shoulders, legs, and chest. Other animals like fish, snake, and frogs are quite common too. For women, the tattoo of a Japanese woman wearing the traditional kimono is a fairly popular design.

Many westerners develop a certain fascination for Asian tattoos and that’s understandable. The colorful history, heritage, and culture of the Asians are mostly the reasons for that.
