Tattoo of the lioness is more common for females. It is explained by a desire to show own femininity. The woman thinks: “I’m a mother (or future mother). So what kind of tattoo will be the best for me to show that?”
Nature gave us strong animal instincts: surviving, caring of our inheritors. As lioness takes care of its babies a woman cares of hers.
But it does not mean that a man can’t choose a lioness tattoo for himself. You can take a look at some great examples of lioness tattoos on men and women below.

So it’s not just a beautiful picture of a lioness on the inner arm, it has a deep symbolism in every line.
