Samurai Tattoo Sleeve
This Tattoo design showcasing Samurai helmet and dragon. Some cherry blossoms(sakura) used as additional elements of the background. Very beautiful and powerful tattoo by any means.
The fragility of the cherry blossom is the fragility of human existence, its brief period of life, like our own; its movement toward death, indifferent to the good things of this world, is the ideal death for a warrior; and finally, its individual and perfect beauty is also ours.
The Asian dragon is usually the bearer of profound blessings. Like other Oriental tattoo designs, the choice of a dragon is generally an aspiration to the qualities of great goodness, wisdom, and power. (Source)
