Since tattoo making is an art in itself, it is no surprise that mythical creatures and fantasies form a great portfolio of tattoo designs. Dragon tattoo designs have been very popular and have been seen in many movies, and even a novel “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.

Another such tattoo is the griffin tattoo design,inspired by a mythical creature that has the features of a lion and eagle combined into one, as a symbol for strength and amazing powers. Lion is the king of animals, and an eagle is the king of birds, so it is a two-in-one creature, which you can tattoo on your body like the griffin tattoo designs in this list.
