Traditional koi fish tattoos

The real meaning of koi tattoos derives from the koi fish tattoos. Koi fishes symbolize the courage, determination and power to achieve the desired goals. In addition to this, it is a symbol that the person has overcome the bad patch of his life or is getting into it. This is a very interesting myth reflecting that when the fish on the tattoo is shown swimming upstream, is means that the person having the tattoo is under the scanner these days. On the contrary, if the fish is slanting downwards, it follows that the person is now out of the bad patches in his life.

In addition to the meaning of the koi tattoos, opposite sex love and a heavy feeling for someone is very renowned. This love may either be romantic or passionate; but in Buddhism the word koi depicts bravery and the fear of none. Not even of death!

The charm and the vigor of the koi fishes have made it a very famous symbol for any family in Japan. On the annual children’ day, huge tubular flags of various colors of fishes are fabricated. The black color koi goes for the father; a flame red for the mother; a white and blue koi for the boy and red color for the girl.
