Realistic Lion Tattoos

Realistic Lion Tattoo by Robin Patel

The lion symbolizes strength, courage and leadership. It also represents a symbol of good luck, guardianship, and power. The Chinese believe that the lion is a symbol of the earth and sun. Many people know that the lion "Leo" is part of the Zodiac. Leo is the 5th sign of the Zodiac, and anyone born between July 23-August 22 is considered to be a Leo. People born during this time are very highly energetic and are good hearted people. The Leo is somewhat timid and enjoys control, but they are very generous. The Leo also represents balance.

As you can see in the picture above, Robin tried to bring the photo realism with the style of tattooing known as black and gray texturing to detail the hair, shadow and light source. The tattoo is now 6 weeks healed and you can still see the details getting softer on the skin rather than getting washed away. The older the tattoo gets, softer it will show up without losing the prime details.
