Sometimes it makes you ponder why there are people who would rather have a fish tattoo flash design in their body parts rather than have a religious or sacred image such as Virgin Mary or Jesus Christ, maybe. But then of course, people will always have their personal reasons for choosing one object over another, or in this case, of picking fish tattoo designs over the several other meaningful ones.
Perplexed about why my friend would prefer to have fish tattoo flash design on his back, I researched hoping my curiosity for the answer would not surprise me so much. After which, I got to know that there are 2 reasons why people prefer to have fish tattoos on their bodies- one of which for the reason of beauty and the other, for symbolism.
In case you are not aware of it, fish are known as objects that portray beauty. That is why if you will notice, there are a wide range of artists that dwell on using fish as their subject. Imagine being underwater and you see countless of separate schools of fish with each different kinds and colors swimming so beautifully against the water. In addition, there are the plentiful sea creatures that encircle them as they swim beautifully through the waters.
Whatever color you think of, it’s there – orange, red, blue, yellow, green and a concoction of all these striking colors. Now, that answers my question quite accurately. But then again, you will find a majority of tattoo enthusiasts who would love to get a fish tattoo design purely for the symbol fish carries.
Because of this, such people become truly pleased and at the same time delighted seeing their favorite tattoo design in their very own being. Just the same, the most important thing in tattoo designs is how you will wear it, what it represents and it should match your personality as well, of course.
Also, you will find there are quite a lot of fish symbols that are universally used from almost all countries of the world. They include the Koi fish, a true favorite or most preferred fish by many people. In fact, the fish depicts good luck as well as fortune.
But the thing is not practically everyone who would want to get one can buy it because it costs so much; not to mention that it is a very complicated fish to take care of. Subsequently, as a replacement for the real thing, a great deal of people who know the Koi fish and would really want to get one but just cannot afford it, simply resort to having the fish tattooed on them instead. In that way, they feel some contentment with the symbol they have chosen, and they feel like they will soon be lucky and amass the fortune they have always longed for.
Moreover, goldfish can also be an alternative in choosing fish as a tattoo design. This fish is not only cute actually, but can also depict wealth and fortune. But then again, there are some people who would rather see the goldfish confined in their fish tanks than in their bodies. Or what is more, there is also the salmon to prefer as an alternative fish tattoo flash design should you long for wisdom.
