Here's my just completed Koi Tattoo. It took over 4 hours in one sitting. I felt this was a good way to pay tribute to my Japanese heritage. While also showing the Love I have for my family. The Koi represents us as a couple. The Fall Leaves represent my children (I also have their names in Kanji down my back. This was done in a previous sitting).
The tattoo was done by Kristal at Wild Bill Tattoo in Roseville, CA.
