The All Powerful & Auspicious Guardian Lions: Foo Dog Tattoos

We love Irezumi, and Foo Dog tattoos are a huge part of that. We collected some to honor their place in tattoo history.

These Foo Dog tattoos are iconic. They are a piece of tattoo history in and of themselves, not just in traditional Irezumi but they also transcend cultural boundaries as our article on the history of them explains. Traveling from Chinese folklore to Japanese Irezumi, and making its way across the globe on the skin of so many collectors of tattoos, these marvelous creatures are one of our favorite tattooing design motifs. We gathered these Foo Dog tattoos to give you an insight into their particular characteristics, but also to show off the work of some of our favorite artists.

Tattoodo is fortunate enough to have some of the best artists on our team. Chris Garver, Mike Rubendall, and Stewart Robson are all highly respected in the tattoo community and we're fortunate enough to be able to work with them to support their work. That's what Tattoodo is all about: a platform for the cultivation and admiration for the best of the best tattoos out there. These Foo Dog tattoos are no different. You can see how a beautiful tattoo is made by the skill and technique of a tattoo artist who has been honing their talents over many years.
