Few images are more common throughout Asian tattooing than that of the koi fish. For the most part the tattoos are thought to symbolize good fortune. According to legend if a koi was able to swim upstream at a certain part of China’s Yellow River the fish would magically become a dragon, thus the fish is also used to symbolize a person’s ability to achieve greatness through determination. Check out this gallery of some of our favorite koi tattoos.
