Small flying carp fish tattoo
The carp may not be a very attractive fish in real life, but that doesn’t mean a carp can’t make a beautiful fish tattoo! This person got a colorful fish tattoo featuring a carp inked on their body, and the fish is inked with a blue and yellow body, and purple and pink fins. The fish is tattooed in such a way that the side fins look like wings, and so the carp fish tattoo looks more like a flying fish. Not everyone is familiar with the carp, but most people know what a koi fish looks like, largely because of the popularity of koi fish tattoos. “Koi” is actually the Japanese word for carp, and so both fish are surrounded by ancient myth in China, Japan and other ancient cultures. For many people, a carp fish tattoo represents good fortune and wealth.
