Introduction

Garen may be included as a tank and as a great melee champion. The problem is that not many user's know how to build him. Garen is not one of those typical life steal melee champions. Due to his abilities he is quite useful in the tank and attack damage region. For example, his ult Demacian Justice is a pure ad attack but the problem is that he needs to be able to ware down his enemy so that he can surely kill the enemy. And his other ability Justiceis his specialty on tanking; furthermore with this use, he has the chance to ware down the enemy and be able to use his ult. With this being said, garen is a tank/attack damage champion.

runes/masteries

Like it was said in the introduction, garen is a tank/attack damage champion. with the use of these masteries and runes, it would make the use of garen much easier. Attack penetration helps with the attack damage, the magic resist/armor helps with his tanking. Garen will and should be able (if used properly) to help the team and be able to take out any other tank.

Final

I was not able to find any good videos for tanking garens and was unable to film myself playing as him, and for that i apologize. I would recommend each player who would like to build garen as a tank to be aware that if dying occurs, it may mess you up, that is if its constantly happening.
