To the Chinese, the dragon is the lord of the four elements (earth, air, fire and water) and of the four directions (north, east, south, west). In Chinese mythology, the dragon could shape-shift into other creatures, for instance in a human, a silkworm or the entire universe. Dragons have a yang (male) nature and are associated with the number 9, a lucky number in China because it is the biggest possible single number.
Most often a dragon tattoo 'winds' itself up a person’s arm (or leg) and ends on the chest (see pic below).


The upper back is also a popular spot, the dragon's head extending over the shoulder to the chest. Dragons in Chinese designs are often combined with a tiger or phoenix, usually in a fighting pose. According to the Chinese zodiac system, you are a dragon if you are born in the year 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 or 2012.
Many people with strong spiritual beliefs choose the celestial dragon to share those beliefs and confirm their own spiritual path. In these stories, dragons were protectors of the Buddha and helped him to defeat evil spirits.


In such designs, the dragon symbolizes the positive force and the tiger or phoenix the negative or destructive force. That's why until today dragons are used in temple art, such as statues, carvings or paintings. An added benefit of such a placement is that it enhances your muscles and makes you look stronger.
