Uncle Iroh, also known as General Iroh, despite being a supporting character, has been one of the most favorite characters for everyone who has watched the series.

The Last Airbender tattoos are very popular among anime lovers. And among the other Last Airbender tattoos, those inspired by Iroh are more sought after than expected.

Iroh was a firebender who was the former crown prince and retired general of the Fire Nation. He was the uncle and mentor of Zuko, the banished son of his younger brother Ozai. Iroh was a kind, open-minded, generous, wise, and humorous firebender. He believed in living life fully and choosing your own destiny. He was a master of spiritual fire who wanted to maintain the balance between the four elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Absolute fan favorite Iroh even made his way to the spirit world after losing his son. He even entered the spirit world after his own death, unlike other humans. Even in his old age, Iroh was a womanizer who was called “handsome” on numerous occasions. He believes in the philosophy that encourages peace, harmony and mutual understanding. However, when he feels threatened or sees injustice or violence against innocent people, he can become a formidable enemy. And these are the qualities that make him so special and adorable that tattoos inspired by him are becoming more and more popular with every passing day. And here are some Avatar: The Last Airbender tattoos inspired by Iroh:

Iroh’s penchant for tea was made pretty clear in the series. As we all know, ginseng and jasmine tea were his all-time favorites. During his retired life, he was extremely passionate about his teahouse in Ba Sing Se. And that essence has been captured very well in this piece of art. And so this simple tattoo outline would be a good choice if you like Iroh. If you know an artist with a steady set of hands, go with this one.

It was the sun that allowed the firebenders to control the fire. This tattoo perfectly depicts Iroh sitting in the sun enjoying a cup of his favorite tea. The use of red color is quite dominant in this one. The colors of this artwork give it a vibrant and radiant look. With a skilled artist and some care from you during the healing process, you are sure to rock this calf tattoo.

This one depicts two things Iroh was passionate about: tea and Pai Sho, a two-player game. According to legends, the game was prompted by spirits and has been popular since its inception. And the lotus tile in his hand is used in Pai Sho. The use of blue and green in this watercolor tattoo is really beautiful and intricate in nature. Getting this one tattooed can be expensive and painful, but we assure you it will be worth it.

Iroh’s claim to have slain the last living dragon and his ability to breathe fire earned him the title “The Dragon of the West”. But the truth was that he lied about killing the last dragon to keep the dragon masters alive. Therefore, the nickname given to him was indeed just as significant as this work of art. If you know someone who has experience in tattooing, you won’t regret getting this one tattooed.

This stunning piece of art features symbolic elements from the series. The tea in Iroh’s hand, the moon and ocean spirits in the form of koi fish, and the symbols of the four nations (fire, water, air, and earth) inscribed on the lotus tile are what make this unique tattoo without the use of colors. It’s just that the black ink shading needs to be done well for this one to look perfect on your forearm or calf.

An artist with expertise and reasonable rates will be perfect for getting this one tattooed on your skin.
