Does it smell like fish in here? Or, is that... lizzard?

I decided a week or so ago that I am getting another tattoo for my birthday.

Since then, I have been plagued with the decision of exactly what I am going to be permanently displaying on my dermis.

Top choices:

1.Koi sleeve.
I like the water and fish thing. I own koi (yeah, so fucking what that they're only 2 1/2 inches long?), and I like the movement in the water, usually contrasting vividly with the color of the fish.
Koi (Japanese for carp) are seen jumping up mountain falls in the wild, overcoming staggering heights and distances. These acrobatic swimmers give rise to the traditional meaning behind koi tattoos, perseverance in the face of adversity, and overcoming incredible obstacles.
Very honorable, Bloggin-San.

2.Black knot work.
5 inch round Celtic buttons. One for each ball of my calves.
Merlin would approve.

3.A dragon of my own.
Possibly opposite the koi on the other arm. If so, a jade and sapphire oriental surrounded in flames.
Or on my shoulder, tail wrapped around my neck.
Also saw a nice knot work piece, kind of like a black knot sun burst or star all knotted up nicely, with a dragon's eye peeking out from the center.
Kimodo kimonos.

4.A ram's skull.
I'm an Aries, sign of the ram. Harbinger of spring. Harold of the dawn of the new Pagan year.
Leader. Warrior. Master of arms. Innovator. Brave. True. Fierce. Uncontrollable. Head strong.
Yup, all that and more.

Help ME! If you have an opinion, and it's not going to burden you too awfully much,


I really can't decide. I'll probably end up with all of them anyway, just which first?
Maybe one a year for 5 years.

Thinkin' of inkin'.

With luck I'll get stuck.

I'd opt for the Rams Head. I'm planning to get the character for Leo. It's who you are. You also might think about your Chinese horoscope character.
I'm shopping for an artist, the best of NOLA have left!
