Pisces are said to be indecisive, which is apt considering the opposite directions of the fish.
Pisces see both sides of a problem, but have trouble figuring out which direction is right, or best.
Many artistic people such as dancers, musicians, actors and photographers are said to be Pisces. This zodiac's glyph symbol is one of the more common styles of Pisces tattoos that you will find. While it may look great no matter where this tattoo is located, this type of tattoo is most commonly found on the shoulder or ankle. Often, the sidepieces are made to look like thin, stylized fish, which blends the picture and the character in one tattoo. Another common way of representing Pisces is the image of the fish, represented in a kind of yin yang style: two fish are shown as though they were swimming in opposite directions with their backs to each other and joined by a thin cord that connects their mouths. Fish have always been popular subjects for a tattoo design, partly due to the fact that they are part of the natural habitat of sailors (who were responsible for the initial success of tattoo art, back in the old school days). Pisces is often shown with dolphins rather than fish, due to the story from Greek mythology of two black dolphins which were sent by Poseidon (the Greek version of Neptune) to save Aphrodite and Eros from an evil monster (Typhon). A symbol that lends itself to the duality of the Pisces and the theme of opposites is the Yin Yang symbol. The symbolism of the fish are similar to the Chinese yin yang symbol, which represents the duality of all things.
When it comes to Pisces tattoo art, there are some who prefer not to be too obvious about their zodiac symbol, but still want a tattoo that represents it. Both the water lily and the violet have been linked with Pisces, and either one or both could be incorporated into your Pisces design. Since Pisces is a water sign, the addition of water elements to your Pisces tattoo is a possibility. Pisces is said to rule what is known as the Twelfth House, which is traditionally known as the house of the subconscious. The fish can be replaced by other sea creatures to represent the yin yang aspect and present a more personalized design.
One of the fascinating things about tattoos is that they are a way of showing the world a bit about yourself and your personality. Horoscope symbols provide a solid basis for many tattoo designs and Pisces tattoos can be a great choice for your body art. Because this sign is also associated with a thirst for knowledge and spiritual understanding, many Pisces become priests or ministers of various religions.
Consisting of a dual fish pattern in which the fish are portrayed similar to parentheses signs that are facing away from each other, but connected by a single line in the middle (The Pisces glyph looks somewhat like an H). Equally as stylish for men or women, there are some style differences that can be specific to your particular gender.
Again, there are as many different renditions of the glyph as there are artists, so there are many of these Pisces tattoos to choose from.


Perhaps you have two lovers and cannot decide which is the better choice, or perhaps you feel it may be time for a move, but don't want to leave your family and friends. Because fish themselves are so variable, there are literally thousands of Pisces tattoos available.
The Koi fish is a domesticated version of the carp and plays an important roll in Japanese and Chinese mythology.
Such a Christian fish tattoo would depict your interest in both Christianity and astrology.
This is one that has grown in popularity with the two fish filling the halves as though swimming in opposite directions. This highly recognizable symbol is an appropriate one to demonstrate the split personality of a Pisces.
Because Pisces is a mutable sign, one that crosses a seasonal divide, weather symbols would also be a good choice for your Pisces tattoo art. These combine fish or the pisces symbol with the typical tribal patterns of modern tribal art or Celtic knot work. This presents another choice in the design of a Pisces tattoo, as adding the planet to the tattoo can present a more individualistic type of tattoo. The pisces sign is ruled by the planet Neptune, so King Neptune with his trident (or only the trident) might be a good choice for your pisces tattoo. The addition of aquatic plants and rocks, your fish appearing under the ocean, or water spots are things that can make your tattoo unique and help it stand out.
Perhaps you have a hidden desire that you want to symbolize with the addition of a tattoo, and create a design that represents something that only you know the real meaning of. Things such as mermaids, sharks, koi fish, killer whales or even dragons can provide the yin yang symbolism and provide a Pisces tattoo that exudes individuality and originality without having to include the fish as part of your tattoo.
For this reason, many people choose to have zodiac tattoos because the symbolism is so obvious. For example, men might prefer a serpent slithering up the glyph, while women may choose a more cute tattoo design that includes flowers intertwined with the glyph for example. Koi fish tattoos represent strength and courage, the fish are usually depicted swimming upstream, going against the tide. You could use a design with two fish that are again facing opposite directions, but the fish themselves are what has come to be known as Jesus fish (see image below).
While Neptune is not one of the most distinctive planets, this only adds to the possibility of the design of the tattoo, as the planet can be colored in a number of ways depending on your preferences.
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. 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! It has been paired with the lotus flower which holds a lot of symbolic meaning of it’s own.
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.


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.
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.
