Mine...dude just go to a reputable shop. They have to trace your arm and then sketch the drawing on that so it actually fits the contours of it.

I thought you were gonna be talking about this girl I know.

Her Koi fish tattoo ended up looking like a cat fish.

if you really must get a koi check out http://www.japankoitattoos.com/koi-tattoos/top-10-most-beautiful-koi-tattoos-i-have-ever-seen

they got some nice ones.

Get it done in color if you want to do it right. But find an tatt artist that can do it in watercolor effects.

but imo I always fancied the goldfish with the long beautiful flowing fins like this one:

My older cousin has a tattoo of a koi.

I'm really unfamiliar with the concept though, does the koi have some sort of special meaning/significance? Or is it just because it looks cool?
