I’ve got a few tattoos and most of them have a meaning as to why I got them. Except for two of them which I got just because I liked them. I’ve got a full sleeve going onto my chest. The design is Lotus flowers, Koi fish with cherry blossoms and some Chinese writing. It’s quite a family orientated piece.
Why did I design this piece.
I’m a family man and wanted something to indicate me growing as person. That’s why the lotus flowers are at the bottom which produces koi fish then eventually they turn into a dragon once they’ve swam through a golden gate. I’ve got writing on my arm which means family and at the top of my arm next to my arm pit I’ve got determination which is what you need if you want to grow. I’ve cherry blossoms dotted around my arm which represents siblings parents my partner and my children each with a separate colour. I’ve also got a hanya mask on my chest to ward off evil spirits. I will eventually get my dragon done on my back. What’s your stories behind your tattoos?
