This is a new mural at our favorite local restaurant. My phone's camera doesn't do the colors justice. I was thinking that it would be a beautiful tattoo, if I was inclined to add another to my body canvas.
According to the Tattoo Encyclopedia by Terisa Green, the Koi Tattoo symbolizes courage, strength, and the ability to overcome life's obstacles. I imagine that this particular image would be a striking reminder of those qualities that I want to work on.
