Sitting 1 (of 3) for my koi fish tattoo in 2007. (Pre-color.) The cancer tattoo might take longer. I like tattoos, in case you didn’t know. I don’t have a whole bunch of them, just 2 or 3 large-ish tattoos. (I say 2 or 3 because two of them kind of go together and could be considered one. I dunno.) I understand that not everyone has positive views on tattoos, so feel free to think what you want, but remember–this is my life and we only have one life to live. (Side note: MRI technicians always ask if you have tattoos. Why? If you are of a certain age, or have ever been in prison, you may have received a tattoo that had trace amounts of metal in the ink. Modern tattoos have no metal in the inks, so I’m all good.) Anyway, ever since this cancer thing started I told myself I’d get a tattoo when it was all over. Well, there is no permanent cure for me, so I told myself that as soon as I was done with Temodar my reward would be to get a tattoo commemorating my experience. This gave me two years to brainstorm, plot and envision the tattoo. And now that I am done with chemo I’ve taken my first steps toward the tattoo. My first appointment with my artist is tonight. He’s the same fellow who did my koi fish artwork. Tonight I am describing to the artist what I envision and where I want the tattoo on my body. This is going to be epic! cancer tattoo Temodar

Tattoos are style statements that are worn by a large number of men and women on their various body parts. Some wear it for aesthetic reasons while some go for them because of the meaning they wield. There are separate tattoos for each section but there are some tattoos that combine both the aspects in a brilliant manner. The koi fish tattoo is one such tattoo. This Japanese fish that is a symbol of strength, courage and perseverance makes for a fabulous tattoo pregnant with deep meaning that inspires, ignites and keeps one motivated.

Sharks are great. They’re fierce, fearless, and powerful. If you’re one of those people who think they’re vicious killers, you’ve probably watched waaaay too many horror flicks. As a matter of fact, sharks only attack when their environment is disturbed or when they feel they’re in danger. In other words, they do it to protect themselves, which is completely understandable. They’re actually gorgeous animals, worthy of our protection and respect. And what better way to showcase your admiration for these badass creatures than to get a shark tattoo?

The koi fish is also known by the name of dragon fish and it is said that it turns into a dragon after climbing the mythical “dragon gate”. The fish is also associated with stoic qualities because when caught by the fishermen and put under the knife, it does not quiver and dies in a brave manner. This is why it is worn as a mark of determination and fearlessness. Apart from these qualities, the koi fish also represents luck, love, fortune, passion and wealth.
