In the Far East, the dragon represents the elements and the four cardinal points, so that dragons are simultaneously a symbol of water, earth, the underworld and the sky. The dragon is a creature with a broad spectrum of traditional culture representations whose bad character (or temper) really be interpreted as “amoral” is neither good nor bad. The forces of nature have no human feelings, representing as they do the cycle of life and death, followed by birth and renewal. Nature feeds us, but also destroys us. So it is with the water dragon tattoo.
According to tradition, the water dragon tattoos designs are the birth of the original springs, but they are also guilty of that sometimes people drown. The myths of the natives of eastern U.S. tell of great horned dragons that live underwater and attract with trickery and deceit to humans, which usually end up resting on an underwater tomb. Loch Ness has its monster, and Lake Okanogan in British Columbia in the U.S. has the “Ogopogo” (water dragon), but never have been documented cases of drowning, nor any official sighting.
The medieval dragon could sometimes appear snakelike, as in some paintings of “St. George”. These representations could be influenced by the Greek myth of “Perseus”, which had to kill a sea monster to save Andromeda. In Cambodia, the legend tells us that the water dragon possesses a jewel that shines like lightning, and whose brightness produces rain.
The Jungian psychoanalyst might suggest that the water dragon symbolizes the deeper features of our subconscious. Or that the overall dragon represents our fears or our feelings or repressed emotions. Less discussed is the popular association with the magic dragon and natural phenomena (sometimes mysterious), on which we do not question their origin. Rain, lightning, floods, comets and shooting stars in the night sky, all the chaos and uncertainty of the universe in which we live can be represented by the water dragon tattoo symbol.
