35 Different Koi Tattoos for Amazing And Beautiful Bodies!
In Japanese, “koi” means carp or carp. But the fact that the word has a simple meaning does not necessarily mean that the koi fish has no form of symbolism. The word koi comes from the Japanese word nishigikoi. Koifis come in a variety of colors and their scales are decorated with beautiful patterns. People keep koi fish in ponds and raise them as pets, and you can find pet shops selling only koi fish. Koi fish are very easy to fish and their maintenance is very expensive.
Koi fish is also a recurring theme in tattoos. According to most tattoo artists, koi fish represents strength, prosperity, determination, independence, stamina and happiness, among others. All this is based on the great reverence and respect that the Japanese have for the modest Koi fish.
