Japanese traditional tattoos
Japanese tattoos are called irezumi which literally means the insertion of ink under the skin. They are one of the most powerful, aesthetic, and beautiful tattoos you can get inked on your body. They are traditionally large and are often considered as arts by many westerners. This is because they are not only beautiful but also have a deep symbolism behind them.
Koi fish is one of the popular Japanese tattoos people usually get for sleeve tattoo designs. Most people would choose designs of a fish wrapping around the front of the arm because this make the fish looks dimensional and comes to life. Koi tattoos represent strength, power and individuality.
