The attraction of the Japanese dragon tattoo design, apart from its awesome beauty, is that is represents good luck and the source of wealth. The Japanese dragon tattoo has the meaning of freedom and of being fearless, both qualities that are admirable. Some characteristics of a Japanese dragon tattoo are that it doesn’t have any wings, is serpentine, has a head of a camel, paws of a tiger, claws of an eagle, scales of a carp (koi), and can have a jewel under its chin. Tending to be more slender, the Japanese dragon is associated with the sea, the clouds or the heavens. Japanese dragon tattoos have three claws as opposed to the Chinese dragon tattoo design which display five claws.
