I saw a website with a pic of George V and Nicky. It said they were the most tattood rulers. I have sent them an email asking how they know this. I would love to know!!!  :)

I'm still thinking that it is indeed the dragon. I showed it to a few people who initially thought I was looking at the flaw in the center of the photo, but when they looked at the big shadow on his arm they saw dragon wings, too.  Though, some of my friends have been known to see things I want them to see so I'll stop pestering them!  :P ;D

But it looks kind of horizontally oriented and rather small, the one you showed is vertical and huge.

More like the first one Helen. I'm sure you can see the darkness and shape of it on Nickys arm  :)

That is not a tattoo, it is scratch in the photo.

It seems he has a dragon tatoo but I think it is just a skin spot.

Actually I think it's wonderfully human for N II to have had a tattoo. After all, even a Czar is HUMAN! LOL
Certain people would say there is the old religious taboo about tattoos and desecration of the body etc etc but is anyone aware that the Coptic Orthodox Christians get a cross tattooed on the inner right wrist? No joke.

If he did indeed get tattooed by artists from the temple we must remember they probably did it the old fashioned way, using individual needles, rubbing the ink on, etc. I doubt they had the electric needles used today. This is probably why it took so long to complete, particularly if different colored inks were used.

Japanese were schocked when Nicholas demanded to make a Tattoo.
Actually, the tatoo was the priviledge of the prisoners and rubbers.
In 1881 year England's Princes Albert and Georgies made tatooos too.
