The ankle is a sexy spot for girls to get tattoos, especially tribal tattoos like this Japanese fish tat. This fish, which could be a koi fish, is inked in black on the outside of this girl’s right ankle. Even though this ankle tat probably hurt a lot, the Japanese fish is super cute and was probably well worth it!

For the Japanese, koi fish in particular represent strength and power because they are often able to lift their entire bodies up and out of the water. According to Japanese legend, if the koi fish succeeded in climbing the falls at a point called Dragon Gate, it would be transformed into a dragon. Koi fish are also very beautiful, which makes them a popular image to use in tribal tattoo designs, especially for women.
