Finally finished my tattoo after what felt like a very long wait (over a month) for my second sitting,

I love it!

Let me know what you think.

I prefer the downward facing Koi and like the petals floating around.
Not really keen on the upward facing Koi, looks a little too stiff, as if the koi needed more bend with the line work.

As an overall piece it looks quite badass though.
Just my 2 cents.

Looks great man. I’m really not a fan of koi but your tattoo looks pretty solid.
Looks like you have a ruined sock there just remember to wear the same one next time you get work done.

Actually, from what I understand from a girl i used to date with a koi.

The chinese lore/story goes… the koi fish is to swim up the yellow river- a task it wasn’t ever supposed to be capable of doing. If it can do that… it will turn into a dragon.

So upward facing koi’s represent the attempt to become a dragon…which is a good thing

saying that
koi’s are overdone. when will unicorn’s become trendy?

Yeah, I was aware of the story before I got the tattoo, however I got it with no real meaning or story behind the it. It was purely because i liked the design as an art form.
