The Koi Dragon tattoo is one of the most beautiful and deeply symbolic tattoos that you can think of. The Japanese fish ink style has been depicted in several ways.
Some tattoos have an almost human-like face with the body of the fish, while others give the fish dragon-like features.
The depiction of the fish may vary, but the meaning behind it does not usually change. For the most part, this Japanese symbol usually means perseverance. The Dragon Koi fish is said to be able to swim against powerful currents. This means that the tattoo means that you have persevered or that you have had to overcome some drastic obstacle that others might not have been able to handle.
Of course, the koi dragon tattoo does not always mean that something has been conquered. The tattoo can mean that you are still dealing with something difficult, but you are choosing to fight against the current.
The tattoo also symbolizes the power of determination, meaning that you are the kind of person who sets goals with the intention of meeting them. At this point, the tattoo could represent goals that have not been set or reached. The placement of the tattoo varies, though most people like to place it on the back or on the chest area. The color varies from person to person, but most people stick with either blue or green.
