I've always said that I'm not getting another tattoo until I know exactly what I want, especially since I had to cover my first tattoo with my second tattoo.
But I also know that the next tattoo is going to be fish related. More specifically I want something with Piscean overtones.
And I've always been of the opinion that it's no use having a tattoo that you personally can't see... so I've been gravitating towards having something around my left ankle.
That is, until today.
I saw a photo of a guy with tattoos all over his back which just got my brain ticking over... first to the thought of a line of little goldfish/koi running up my back with some stylised water... then after I googled variations of fish, koi, tattoo and back, I found two images I quite liked... twiddled around in Photoshop with the Fairy Fish design...
Through the wonders of Photoshop I also tried all the designs I liked on a photo of my back... although I just realised that I have my arms up in the photo, so I may need to take a new one where I have my arms down.
Although the longer I stare at the Fairy Fish, the more it's starting to look distinctly phallic... or is that just me?
I'm also wondering how much a tattoo that runs essentially along your spine is going to hurt...
It's not like I'm rushing into anything... it's still just a concept...
