Koi Tattoo Art

Koi is an oriental name for fish in the carp family. In the Orient koi are very revered, and are thought to have certain mystical abilities about them. Koi stands for courage, strength, determination, advancement, and perseverance. In the English Language the word "Koi" is translated as the word "love", or the feeling of love. It can also be translated as romantic love or a very passionate love affair. However, koi can also mean selfish. In the orient koi is a symbol of good luck.

In China there is a legend that describes a koi fish swimming up the Yellow River to a waterfall, and if it is at a place called the Dragon Gate, the koi may then jump over the fall and be transformed into a dragon.

In Buddhism it is believed that people are like the koi, swimming in an ocean of suffering all their lives, yet they continue striving forward until they die. The koi fish tattoos with 5 golden koi stands for well being through our daily lives, and eternal wealth, 5 being a lucky number. And matched with the legend the koi is as lucky as a dragon.

Butterfly Tattoos

Butterfly Tattoos

Butterfly tattoos are beautiful, dynamic and versatile motifs for a man or a woman. Butterflies as a group are a classic icon in the visual and decorative arts. There is also frequent reference to these lovely creatures in music, from the name of Puccini's opera in which a Japanese woman marries an officer in the US navy to Hip Hop artist Bobby Valentino's "Butterfly Tattoo". Books were written by Philip Pullman, celebrated for "The Golden Compass" and Deidre Knight, both titled "(The) Butterfly Tattoo". The Pullman book was produced as a film in 2008.

Butterfly tattoos, like butterflies, show up everywhere. You hardly have to think about it to see butterflies in every corner of life. Most people learn the story of the caterpillar's incredible change from a "worm" to a beautiful winged insect while they are still young children, and the idea of transformation and hidden beauty is quickly ingrained in their minds. So on this level, butterflies are really a part of our popular culture. Later, the metaphor develops further associations for us such as a new beginning, major life changes, and rebirth. It could stand for the uncertainty and instability of life here on Earth. In a more literal way, butterflies stand for a person's unencumbered spirit and the freedom of that spirit to take flight. They also stand for a love of nature and the environment. A memorial tattoo for a loved one is very often conceived and designed as a butterfly tattoo.

Interest in butterflies seems to be common to people on every continent. In Egypt, they were apparently used in tomb paintings purely for their ethereal beauty. The detail is so refined, I've read, that present day species can be readily identified, notably Danaus chrysippus, similar to the North American Monarch. Butterflies in China are representative of long life, and of a young man in love, respectively. Chinese kites featuring the slender-bodied diurnal lepidopteran insects are well-known around the world; butterflies make frequent appearances in Chinese scrolls; and Chinese butterfly tattoos are some of the earliest known butterfly tattoos. In South America butterflies were associated with a warrior's soul, in an interesting parallel to the ancient Greek word for the insect, which is the same as the Greek psyche, or soul. In the North American Blackfoot tribe, butterflies were the bringers of dreams, the keepers of secrets, and an archetype of the lower part of the human soul that constantly seeks excitement and change. On the European continent, butterflies meant life after death in the ancient Celtic culture. In the Flemish renaissance iconography, it meant fleeting love, and to the Irish Catholics, butterflies symbolized souls waiting to enter purgatory.

Butterfly tattoos have a unique versatility that is almost unending. The design options can be considered in terms of size, color, style, and number and variety of design elements.

Mermaid Tattoos

Mermaid Tattoos

The ancient Greeks had their Sirens, whose haunting songs lured many a seafarer to his death. And the fifteenth and sixteenth century explorers returned to Europe with tales of sea creatures who had the heads and upper torsos of a woman and fishes' tails instead of legs. They claimed that these mysterious and beautiful creatures were as deadly as the Sirens of old, and would lure men into the water by pretending they were drowning, only to squeeze their unsuspecting victims to death.

Sailors were the first to wear mermaid tattoos, possibly because they had no other way of capturing the mermaids' beauty. For generations mermaid tattoos were seen exclusively on men who made their living at sea; but as tattoos became more widely accepted as appropriate for everyone, the exotic and glamorous mermaid began to show up on all sorts of arms and torsos. She appeared not only in her traditional forms, but also as water nymphs; fairies; and even characters from mainstream culture, like the cartoon character Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid.

The mermaids in mermaid tattoos are invariably inked with long flowing hair which appears to be waving seductively in the water. The ancient often depicted Aphrodite, their goddess of love and fertility, with long hair; and the comb which is an element in both portrayals of Aphrodite and in mermaid tattoos had significant sexual meaning for the Greeks.

But mermaid tattoos, somewhat surprisingly, have become as popular among women as they have been for centuries among men. There is no denying that mermaid tattoos simply glow with mystery, femininity, and the hint of primal creative forces, and they are now decorating the shoulders and backs of as many females as males.

Mermaid tattoo designs are ideal for positioning on rounded bodily contours, because the mermaids are often drawn in curved and twisted poses. They may contain a single mermaid or a group set against an underwater backdrop with coral, fish, and treasure chests, and or reclining in a seashell. Mermaid tattoos, perhaps more than any except floral tattoos, allow a tattoo artist to indulge in a full palette of colors.

Koi Fish Tattoos

Koi Fish Tattoos

There are many mysteries that remain unanswered surrounding the Koi Tattoo flash art and Koi Fish Tattoo community. A symbol of perseverance and strength, the Koi Fish tattoo is a direct descendant of ancient fables of journeys made by groups of Koi making an arduous journey along the Yellow River to the Golden Gate where, it is told, if they survive the jump to the summit, they transform into a Dragon and achieve their lifetime goal.

The journey along the Yulong River to the Dragon Gate is a favorite amongst the Far Eastern Elders and today, the tales of the Koi are recollected amongst younger communities representing achievement in terms of education and graduation.

The symbol of the Koi Fish in the world of tattoos provides a story for those who make this choice in ink, a parallel story to the perseverance and endurance of the Koi, in their journey through life.

Each Tattoo has an independent meaning and usually this meaning is determined by the wearer of the Ink, only they know the reasons why they choose the colour, background and flora that surrounds the Koi Body design. What is understood is that the reason for choosing a Koi Tattoo is to show something that is symbolic to ones life struggle, an homage to arriving at a certain point in a journey.
