    I have been looking around for some Dragon Tiger images. These images can be associated with different things, however, they are used heavily in martial arts (Chinese Kenpo,Shaoling Kung Fu, etc.).

    Here is one example:

    If anyone can find different images that display a Japanese tattoo style, it would be appreciated. The Japanese use a lot of bright red, bright green, etc. I am looking for tiger and dragons facing each other, or sometimes they are circling each other. I am usually VERY good at digging stuff up on the internet, but I am just not finding what I am looking for.

    Once I do find something to my liking, I will have a Japanese artist design it, then tattoo it onto my back.

    Thanks,

    Abner :)

    Excellent list... may I suggest that you also look for separate images and then have the designer intertwine the two you like. I 'designed' two of my tats that way, and I'm going for another tat next week...

    I was looking for the Eye of Horus and the Ankh Cross, when I found the two I liked I added my own personal touch to it (in this case, I took the known Egyptian Hieroglyph alphabet and translated my family's names and a favorite verse of mine as the background, it's now a nice, rectangular shape that I'll have the artist flow around my arm) to ensure uniqueness.

    Here is a google search for tiger and dragon:

    Abner,

    type dragon tiger in Google and use the "Images" (top left) search looks like over 2 million hits so maybe you can find something.

    Wow!!!

    Nice, I have thousands of images to look through now. I am taking color prints of a few so I can show the artist.

    I agree Blue Mason. I will need to find a dragon I like, then a tiger. They most probably will come from different pieces. That's ok, I want this to be custom piece, with super bright colors, bamboo background, etc. I like black contrasting with bright red, bright green, yellow, orange, etc. Your tat sounds really unique and interesting.

    Thanks for the help Kizmet, Kevin and Blue Mason!

    Abner :)
