'Modern Koi', Inspired by "Koi Traditional Japanese Painting", Watercolor Illustration by Jennifer Kraska [b., American], ~ [Isn't a tattoo but it has a similar theme to my idea. A beautiful sketch like this would be stunning].

Horiyoshi III Carp The subject here is Horiyoshi III himself, as tattooed by his master Horiyoshi II. The scene is a fantasy of ocean waves and wind, eddies and whirlpools, all celebrating the persistence and fortitude of the heroic carp. The Japanese Tattoo - Sandi Fellman
