In Ancient Chinese legend, a tale has it that any Koi fish that overcame the turbulent,dangerous waters of the falls at Dragon gate would be transformed into a dragon.
The Koi fish in tattoo imagery is said to show courage and the ability to overcome difficulty with strength and determination to achieve one's dreams.
It is a popular tattoo to obtain after a significant moment or occasion in life, such as achieving a lifelong dream, or, at the start of a long and hefty battle, acknowledging the fight that lies ahead, such as starting up a business or starting a new life in a new country. it means NOTHING. stop looking for meaning in all tattoos. many tattoos are simply whimsical and fun or aesthetically pleasing. they don't all mean things. also, different designs mean different things to different people. there isn't an end all answer. try asking the person it's on what it means to them.
