Sofia's Journal: Wrist Tattoos

Sofia's Journal: Wrist Tattoos
A girl I work with has tattoo sleeves covering each arm. They're not quite finished yet but they are, quite literally, a work of art. It got me contemplating tattoos again. I always gravitate towards wrist tattoos. Something about the delicate skin on the inside of the wrist and the harsh contrast of dark ink makes an interesting pairing. Some I'm currently loving... Do you have a tattoo? Have a wonderful weekend girls!

They fall like a shower from the trees, giving us a way to watch the wind dance. They paint the landscape with a blanket of color. Don’t believe me?

40 Koi Fish Tattoos Koi fish tattoos are as varied and as popular as the animal they represent. Koi tattoo designs are often combined with splashing water, cherry blossom and lotus flowers. Koi fish are a species of carp (Koi is the Japanese word for carp) that are specially bred to have wild, brilliant color schemes. Originally a ravenous pet species that stirred up silt in waterways, the Japanese have inbred them and turned them into gemlike marvels. The general symbolic meaning of koi and koi tattoos is good luck. Interestingly, the Japanese assign different symbolic meanings to the fish depending upon the way it behaves, either in the pond or in the wild.
