In the West the dragon tattoo has always been a much darker creature, wrecker of havoc and destroyer of cities, for example the creatures found in the J R R Tolkien books and film series such as The Hobbit. The dragon Smaug for example displays greed, cunning and violence. Western dragon tattoos and eastern dragons therefore vary significantly in their meaning. In the East the dragon is seen as a harmonious intelligent creature, whereas in the West the dragon is a fearsome warrior.
