Oriental Dragon Back Piece: Baldwin Horikawa

Oriental Dragon: Full Back Piece, in Colour.

Artist: Baldwin Horikawa from GimmeLove Tattoo Shop 1, Singapore.

Dragons in Asian culture, unlike their western brethren are not symbols of evil and devil alliances, knights don't go round slaying them and they don't guard any places or castles.  They are symbols of power and majesty, longevity and wisdom. They are respected in revered mythological creatures. One man's meat is another man's poison?
This took 9 sittings in 5 months.
