Koi Fish Tattoos Designs

While Koi fish tattoos designs are undeniably beautiful with their glistening colorful scales, many people do not really understand what they signify in drawings, images and body art designs. Koi translates simply to ‘carp’ in Japanese and can be found in many colors ranging from gold, orange, yellow, white, and a mixture of the above.

Koi Drawings

In drawing of these fish designs, the colors can be even more vibrant and strange. The Koi tattoo is recognized as one of the most recognizable symbols in Japanese culture. It is widely celebrated throughout Japan for its beauty and what it signifies to the people as well.

While these fish are widely honored in Japan, the folklore story has come from China. Legends claim that any Koi which can successfully swim through the Yellow River and make it past the Dragon Gate will be magically transformed into a majestic dragon. From this story, the Koi tattoo design has become a symbol or progress and determination for the people.

Koi Fish Body Art

The story of the Koi fish body art is one to be remembered, making it an excellent option for somebody to paint, get tattooed, or buy a print of. A Koi fish design, in Japanese, Chinese, and cultures around the world, signify bravery, determination to reach high goals, courage, and of course tackling any of the difficulties that life presents an individual with.

In stories passed down for generations, the Koi is said to have climbed the waterfall despite the current pushing it back. As a result of this it has become a symbol of bravery and the Japanese have claimed that if it is caught, it does not move an inch before getting cut open.
