    Dragon tattoo ideas look the best on big areas of the body, as it’s almost impossible to show all the glory and power of the mythical animal in a small tattoo. This is the reason why the best solution is to make a dragon tattoo on back. It gives an artist the whole big canvas for a real masterpiece creation.

    It is also not recommended to place a dragon tattoo on leg, especially on a shin or calf because it will be hard for a tattooist to express the whole idea. Try to take your shoulder blade or lower back into consideration instead.
