In Japan, the koi fish symbolizes perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose, which stands for courage and the ability to attain high goals. It is a bit like the black koi because there is a relation to adversity but it is also used to symbolize strength, courage, bravery to challenge the odds in order to create one’s own destiny and get reborn. This design typically uses vibrant colors and graceful, sweeping lines to create an eye catching, visually appealing work of body art. The koi fish represents calmness and serenity – perfect for those of you who lean toward Eastern philosophy or religion. Spend some time browsing through these designs, and you’ll be sure to find one you like.

Mythology would have you believe that the Koi fish has the ability to swim up the yellow river and become a dragon – this of course is symbolic of ones aspirations to become something bigger and better in life. Keep in mind, though, that koi designs tend to be a bit large, so if you’re looking for a small tattoo design for your ankle, shoulder, or wrist, you might be better off asking your tattoo artist to create a custom design for you. Red is taken as an energetic color so the tattoo is typically an expression of masculine love. Like a woman who gathers the courage to leave an abusive marriage or an employee who leaves their job to try and set up their own business.


Today, most fish tattoos are related to the koi fish tattoos, which originated from East Asia. It can be used to represent love for a woman by a man or a woman can have one as a reminder of the strong love she has for someone or commitment to something – It is passionate. We have compiled 40 of our favorite Koi fish tattoo designs to show you.Firstly let’s just acknowledge how absolutely amazing this design is!
Black symbolizes great adversity, the black koi fish is used to represent adverse struggle to succeed. It has been paired with the lotus flower which holds a lot of symbolic meaning of it’s own. Whatever hardships one has to go through to get to the point they are now can be represented by this tattoo.
The lotus flower grows in muddy waters but turns in to a beautiful flower, signifying struggle, determination and a change for the better in ones life.Here is another example of a breathtakingly beautiful Koi fish design on a ladies back. If the blue Koi is swimming upstream in the tattoo, then it symbolizes a person who is currently going through some trials in their life and they are facing them boldly. This time in just black ink but as you can see the shading work is impeccable.We particularly like the traditional Japanese style wave shapes that people put around Koi fish tattoo designs. If, however, the Fish is swimming down the stream, then the person has already dealt with the trials and is moving on with their life. The Dragon koi is usually yellow and is swimming upstream in the yellow river to transform into a dragon. Traditionally they are kept in ponds as pets, valued for their beautiful and fascinating appearance. Many a garden’ s appearance has been improved by having a Koi pond with these colorful fish swimming in themHere you can see more of a modern take on the Koi fish tattoo design. Pinks and greys always manage to work well together and we love the watercolor style blots that make up the background of this design, very beautiful indeed.Okay, wow!
Even someone who doesn’t like tattoos will surely appreciate the beauty of this design. As mentioned earlier, it is quite common for people to pair Koi fishes with lotus flowers as both hold deep meaning, particularly in Japanese culture.


Whilst they have opted not to color in the actual Koi fish on this one, they have colored the water blue and the lotus flower pink with yellow tips which gives it a great amount of pop without overdoing it with too many colors. This design definitely shows elements of the dragon (particularly the eyes) and as such is representing the transformation of the Koi in to the dragon koi which to a person is obviously meaningful of a change for the better in their own life.Three is one of the most common lucky numbers to people. As you can see the person is no stranger to tattoos, already having a large skull design on their chest.
Shaving the side of ones head and getting a tattoo can be seen as a big commitment by some, but of course if you end up getting a tattoo you don’t like you can always grow your hair back there and not have to see the design again!We love the modern (but scary) take on the koi fish design. It appears to be more of a decaying fish and is most likely a representation of the persons choice to go against the flow and do things differently.Whilst not koi fish as such, here is a great example of some similar style fish tattoos. Tattoos like this full back piece can take over 10 hours and many sessions (a lot of money too) so you will want to be sure that it’s a design that you really love. This person seems to be going for a sea theme across their whole body so the massive koi fish on their back is definitely fitting with the theme and looks superb.Whilst it can be a bit hard to see because the persons shorts are covering it, this is an example of a red koi fish.
The red koi fish is traditionally a symbol of love which is definitely apparent in this design where the koi fish also has a love heart at the end of its tale.
Again it’s a black koi fish which most likely means that the lady has overcome a challenge in their life recently (at least if they got it for the traditional reason). This koi fish also looks like it is beginning the transformation or rather evolution in to its dragon form.Koi fish are considered to bring good luck and a better life to their owners, the Japanese valued these fish as a good luck symbol.
This sort of endorsement coming from a culture that has deeper meanings and symbolism for almost every aspect of life, makes Koi have even more weightage. There is only a minimal amount of red (the stamp and the shading at the bottom of the back) but it really contrasts well with with the deep black color of the rest of the design and overall this is a great looking and albeit epic back piece!Here is a bit of a reverse of an earlier example of where the person had a black colored koi fish with colored waves. This means your tattoo design choice should be one that you like and will continue to like.
