In Japanese and Chinese mythology tigers represent, strength, courage, and a long life, and are considered the supreme land animal. They are also said to ward of bad luck and demons and as such there is often a tiger depicted alongside Shoki the Demon Queller.
I love tattooing this subject. For me, there is always the challenge of trying to marry the traits of the very stylised tigers found in Japanese, Korean, and Chinese art with the expressiveness of real tigers. I always lean toward the Japanese depictions for reference and hope to do justice to this awesome subject of wabori.
