    :dunno: What about women w/swords in their heads? When I asked my artist he just said girls get them as a scary/death kind of thing and guys just think it looks cool.

    i personally love those types of tattoos. i'm thinking i might get something either on my side, ribcage, or back with something like one of those.

    What does it mean though :o

    that is my artists work, I have a consultation with him this week to talk about upcoming plans- I can interpret the fish design to my own meaning, but I wanted to know if there was any traditional/spiritual meaning?

    The koi represents perseverance. The barbels, or whiskers, around the mouth can also signify knowledge or wisdom.[size=-1][/size]
