It is quite amazing when you hear a lion roar. The sound that they make is undeniably very frightening and deafening. For thousands of years, the lion has been worshiped for its courage, strength, and power. Lions have been found throughout many different cultures representing these very attributes.
Often, when people decide to get a lion tattoo design, they usually go for a realistic looking one. You can get a lion that looks calm and peaceful, or you can get one that looks mean as it bears its teeth in a thunderous roar. A good artist will be able to provide you with a realistic looking lion design in any pose that you desire.
When it comes to getting your lion tattoo inked, size is really up to you. You may decide to get just the Lions head done in a small size on the part of your arm. Or you may choose to get a whole lion body done up that spans across your entire back. With lion tattoos the size is just dependent on you and what you are looking.
If you want to get a African lion tattoo that is more intricate you can have the lion pictured in a natural habitat.

You will be in good company since the lion has stood for those two things for thousands of years already.
