Nice tattoo - if you look closely at right above the tail, it looks like a man smiling while looking up ....nah, wait - that's the chocholate getting to me.

As to composition of picture, have your wife try taking the picture at an angle (either upwards or downwards) slightly - that will take the flash glare off somewhat.

Nice tat-victor--looks like you got really inked up!

12-31-2007, 10:05 PM
Wow that's a really nice body mutilation you got there... J/k. Nice tattoo.

I find it very interesting that you chose a koi fighting a stream. Its very symbolic and even mythological in my culture. Why in particular did you pick that one?

12-31-2007, 10:52 PM
for the same reason it stands for jin i have fought many obsticals in my life thats also why it has courage in kanji leaste thats what it said in the shop, that it said lol for all i know it could be calling me meat head lol jk....

Majic dragon tattoos by jeremiah morris....very nice work gotta go still too hung over:fish:

Yes that is courage in kanji so rest easy! The carp fighting falling water has a lot of different meanings like courage, love, destiny, and perseverance. All good stuff. The variance is typically dependent on color. I'm not certain but I think your color choice would indicate destiny? Could be courage though. I'll have to look it up :).

That is one mean looking carp you have on there.

01-01-2008, 11:58 AM
Its cause its a carp that is changing into a dragon. Its part of the mythology.

LOL! Im going to wait until the summer to get my tat cuz i have a friend in L.A. (my home) that will do them for cheap and does them very well! I havent really decided on what yet! (maybe the grim reaper laughing holding 2 vicious pitbulls) What you think Vic?

01-01-2008, 7:28 PM
