Japanese tattoos provide a striking and visually stunning form of artwork to any collection of body art. From fierce dragons and tigers, to demons locked in mortal combat and gracefull Koi fish swimming in streams there is something for everyone. An integral part of the beauty and allure of traditional Japanese tattoos is the capacity for the forms and designs to evolve and develop over time from smaller, separate individual tattoos into magnificent motifs that may encompass an arm as a sleeve or become an entire back-piece. Thus, the bearer can start off small and with little expense and over time create elaborate pieces that are truly breathtaking. The typical Japanese tattoo tells a story that often involves some form of epic journey. Common themes include overcoming great odds, battling forces of evil and overcoming one’s own imperfections. Japanese tattoos are also infused with deep symbolic meaning. Take the tiger in the picture for instance. It’s symbolizes strength, power and savagery. And that is just one example of the myriad of possibilities available to lovers of Japanese tattoos. So, whether your looking to retell an ancient story, compare your attributes to mythological creature or simply are looking for something elegant and beautiful then Japanese tattoos have something for you.
As is the case in many of the japanese tattoos this one too is extremely colorful and active. It includes a couple of large fish appearing to be golden carp, who seem to be swimming about in a busy, yet very well decorated body of water. Perhaps a symbol of serenity, I would imagine.
