Soooo crazy. I have this exact same tattoo in the same spot on my foot, except mine is larger. And the water isn't colored until I get around to adding the ankle art.

This is one of the nicest kois I've seen :)
Don't think I'm brave enough for a foot tattoo though!

Thanks :) You will be brave once you find something you love enough! :aww:

Welcome! :)
Yeah! I think I'm going to get my first either on my ankle or hip and at the moment I'm actually quite liking the idea of a koi or dragon. But since I'm not even 18 yet I may have changed my mind by the time it comes to it! ^-^

I changed my mind many times before I turned 18 and even then I still waited a while and started with something I knew I would love! The more things you see that you like the better idea you will have when the time comes :) It's nice to have sites like deviantart to help us all find wonderful references :)

I have changed my mind so many times.
Still got a while yet though and I don't want to rush into anything!
Yeah it's a great place :)

Good for you :) I have a folder of ideas I wanted when I was 17 and I am SO GLAD I did not get any of them :aww:

Haha, I have that too and I can't believe I even thought some would look good x)

I like what the koi represents, so if I'm still liking the image by the time my birthday rolls round then I may go for that :D
Also knowing a great artist (he's done stuff for a few of my friends and they've all been amazing) helps too I think, as I know that at least if I start to dislike the actual tattoo it will always be a great piece of art.

Thank you :) She sat very well for it. I can't even imagine the toe. I've tattooed a few of them and they don't seem very fun!
Mytebemagick's avatar
I apologize, I thought you were the waerer, not the artist lol
No, Toes are not fun, and mine is not complete, nor will it ever be haha.
And, well I dont' care cause it's on my toe. I have 11 others =)

Thank you! I don't really remember how much I charged her, but I think it was near an hour, which we charge $150 an hour, if that helps ?
