An ocean’s worth of fish tattoo designs are available for you to choose from. Each one fish can represent something unique and important to you whether it is something peaceful like the Christian fish symbol or fearsome like the shark.
Koi fish tattoos are enjoying a current vogue, not just because they are beautiful, but they are also seen as lucky. Several Asian cultures are particularly fond of the Koi, Japanese for carp. The myths and legends concerning the Koi fish are popular in East Asia.
There are so many fish tattoos to choose from: gold fish, dolphins, sea turtles, clown fish, seahorses, and so on. Although dolphins and turtles technically aren’t fish, they still make a great tattoo as they are fun and playful creatures. Colorful tropical fish like the clown fish stand out with whimsy. Who doesn’t look at the bizarre seahorse with a sense of wonder? Even non-fish-lovers have so many ideas to work with.
Noted for shock value, is the very popular shark tattoo. The tattoo designs typically draw attention to the dorsal fin and a mouthful of sharp teeth. Some people like the shark tattoos because it makes them look tough, someone not to be messed with. The shark is also a strong and fearsome predator, a personality trait that some men want to display. Some cultures developed shark tattoos as a protective ward from the really things, but rely on this.
As tattoos are an expression of individuality, the many types of fish allow you to make a statement about your own quirks—anywhere from a guppy to a shark!
The fish tattoos are available in a variety of tattoo styles including the very popular Celtic. Fish tattoos work particularly well in Celtic knotting; even more so if the entire tat is enclosed with a Celtic border.
There is certain to be a tattoo available for you no matter what kind of fish you like. Even if you don’t see one you like, no need to worry. One way to be individual is to ask the tattoo designer to create one for you; that way it’s guaranteed to be unique.
