The lion acts as a predominant role in the-Middle Eastern and African cultures. The king of the jungle dominated not only the endless plains of the Serengeti, but his domain was pushed to the lands of southern Europe. The lion oozes royalty: in the Christian religion Jesus himself was represented by the mighty animal (which has become a symbol of San Marco and Venice itself) an icon of justice and power.

In Buddhism the lion represents knowledge and wisdom (the Simhasana is the Lion Throne). In Hinduism instead, it represents Lord Krishna, due to its energy and its golden color. The Egyptians used the symbol of two lions in revenues of the temples, to represent protection, balance and protection of the temple itself. Another of the most common meanings is related to the strength and courage, a lion tattoo is perfect for anyone who is looking for these qualities in his or her life.
