I wasn't going to post this, until hubby told me I should. :D It was originally just a doodle for myself, as a possible wallpaper. Obviously it was inspired by my recent koi obsession. lol

Do you know anything about the story around tatooing koi fish on you... Doesn't many people do it after experiencing something special in their life..? Or is it just for the luck?

love the brush work, are you a calligrapher by any chance?
just thought I`d share some random trivia `koi` in Japanese can also mean `Love`, you`ve written `ai` 愛 there which is the same meaning but just as a coincidence the carp `coi` written as 鯉 when written with the kanji 恋 which is also pronounced exactly the same means love.
愛 ai - love
恋 koi - love, long for (koishii 恋しい to miss someone/something)
恋愛 renai - love
haha, excuse my poor use of vocabulary and explanation skills ^_^;;

You're welcome, and thank hubby too ;) I love it because it looks serene and peaceful. The color usage is minimal which is very appealing, and they're not overwhelming. It's one of those lovely pieces that I wouldn't mind having to hang in my home :) Oh, and I'm Pisces, so there seems to be a theme of that in there :D
