Ideas for Tattoo Imagery

I am wanting to get some ideas for how to portray pain in a tattoo. The person in pain is being represented by a lion and I am struggling with finding good imagery for the lions pain. I would love some feedback on this. I'm stuck
Thanks

I just can't picture a lion in pain

I have several tattoos, so I understand the concept, but I have no clue how to help with this one. Good luck!!

Hmmmm Lion in pain...
I first can imagine a lion jailed. It's not true pain, as he may be sad, but is the 1st I get. Let me think a bit more...

...

...

Okey, I have an idea. What do you think about a Lion that is roaring, but at the same time he is crying with closed eyes? It would be like a Roar In the middle of pain.

I think FanKi's idea is good. With the lion's head thrown back as if he is roaring at the sky.

First image to come to mind for me was a lion roaring as well. The muscles can be depicted differently for a valiant roar vs a painful wallowing roar. I also see ravens or birds of some sort pestering/tormenting the lion. Pulling his mane perhaps.

Hmmm that sounds good too Karl.

Lostone, if you don't mind I'll try to do some kind of sketch (Do not trust me, maybe I won't jajajajaja) for the idea ^^

I know it is such a tough image to tackle hence why I'm asking for help haha. I really like that idea though. Like he is letting out his pain through his cry, like a sigh of relief only a cry of pain. Thank you!

Thanks Karliejaye, I really like that idea as well. It also fits with the background. This person being depicted by the lion has lost his brother at a very young age, been used, cheated on, made fun of, etc. I think that would be perfect to show his torment. Thank you all so much for the ideas. I was stuck and this is definitely sending me on the right path.
