Large Japanese carp fish tattoo on girls back
The carp is definitely one of the less attractive fish out there, and this girl really embraced that fact in her gigantic back carp tattoo. The carp fish tattoo takes up the majority of her back, with the tail inked just above her left hip and the mouth of the fish nearly reaching her right shoulder. The large fish tattoo is inked entirely in black and white, which certainly doesn’t make the carp appear any more attractive, and the minute details of the fish are really accentuated in the tat. Not very many people know much about the carp, but most people are familiar with the koi fish, and they are actually one and the same. “Koi” is the Japanese word for carp, and the koi fish tattoo is often used as a symbol of strength, perseverance, good fortune and courage.
