Lion Tattoo on Shoulder

The red lion is symbolic of sulfur which is the masculine principle and all its assertive qualities. A green lion in alchemy represents the beginning of alchemical work, as well as feminine qualities (lunar too). Two lions tattooed together in an alchemical light can represent the harmonic relationship between males and females. Two lion tattoos may also represent the dualistic nature of Mercury (symbolic of quicksilver and the unification of opposites).
