“Koi” fish have been used in Chinese artworks long time ago. It was said that Koi tattoos are for good luck and fortune. Aside from that, it also represents courage, love and wealth depends on the color and direction they are swimming.
It symbolizes “courage” because human swims to ocean of sufferings without fear just like a fish that swims through water. It is a sign of “love” because Koi means love. It can be either “romantic love” or “passionate love.” It can also bring “wealth” if the tattoo is in harmony with your body and surroundings.
