Showcase Of Koi Fish Tattoo Designs

Tattoos are a form of body art, where designs and patterns are made by inserting ink into the deeper layers of skin. Like dragon tattoos, koi fish tattoo designs have an universal appeal among tattoo lovers for both, their exquisite beauty and charm, along with their association with many Chinese and Japanese legends and mythologies.

Koi fish are a species of carp (Koi is the Japanese word for carp) that are specially bred to have wild, brilliant color schemes. Originally a ravenous pet species that stirred up silt in waterways, the Japanese have inbred them and turned them into gemlike marvels.
