Dragons in Chinese culture symbolize great power, good luck and strength. Emperors were assumed to have descended from the dragons. That is why, out of the twelve zodiac signs, the Dragon is the most popular one. Under the influence of Confucian culture, which has always been critical of tattoos, tattoos are 'alternative' and 'non-mainstream' . In ancient China, criminals were usually inked as a form of punishment. If you are a collector of banned books and art, this is a wonderful addition for your library.
