    I like the color of the koi fish in these 3 pics.

    I like the backround in these 3 pics

    I was thinking of adding something like this into it somewhere

    I was think of getting this on my ribcage (side) or on my shoulder, like a halfsleeve.

    I was reading a thread on here about the meaning of the koi fish, and someone said it stands for perseverance and the whiskers stand for something else. Does anyone know?

    What do you guys think

    The artist near me does some great oriental work, its his speciality.

    It's a shame I have no interest in anything like that.

    Koi are a mythical fish in japanese culture. They stand for perseverance, and go with different symbols depending on which way they are swimming. swimming upwards symbolizes swimming upstream, against the flow, and signifies spring and all that jazz, and usually is decorated with lotus flowers. Swimming downwards, it symbolizes fall and is paired with maple leaves. The legend goes that the first koi to swim all the way upstream is turned into a mythical water dragon.

    Yea he's got it right about the koi. And in addition to that, the koi's whiskers represent wisdom. I'm doing the story of the koi on my legs representing my journey as a filmmaker.

    On the rightleg I have the koi which I got before I went to film school. Now I'm done with that and have worked on a few projects and have started making a name for myself, I'm getting it colored. Once I get my first film done and start to move up further, I'm getting the dragon started on the left leg, and once I finish my first feature, I'm getting it colored. After that I'm just going to add to each leg when something important happens.

    Koi was actually the first tattoo I wanted to get. I opted on going simpler for my first tattoo. Koi may be my next one though.
