Koi Fish Tattoo on a Navy Guy

May 25th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo

I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a Koi fish and some Japanese finger waves.  This guy here was with his friend and they both were in their “whites” from the night before, both stained from a long night of NY partying. True sailors, and the best part is during the tattoo, him and I exchanged what we each knew about the navy and its strong ties to traditional tattooing, the meaning of swallows, nautical stars, and classic images like that. I was impressed with his knowledge on the subject, it was great.  Good for him, its cool to see a young guy respecting some tradition.
