Tattoo Idea

I never thought I would be posting this, but here it is: I am thinking about getting a tattoo. I drew a couple of koi fish and I'm thinking I'm going to get them tattooed on the back of my shoulderblade. I was just wondering what you guys think of the design, the colours, etc. The picture below is just some rough work I did on Microsoft Paint, I scanned the picture I drew and then coloured it (very poorly).




I'm trying to figure out what might look better, having the inside area between the fish black, or leaving it blank. Also, do the two colours look good together, the orange/yellow and the blue, or should both fish be the same colour? Thanks for your input!

Will this be your first tattoo?

I would not take that design at all, try for more realistic fish and have the iside black, bare skin looks bad inside a tattoo. I have seen many "yin/yang" fish over the years and I think the more realistic one look better and will keep on looking better over the years when your skin gets older. You might like this style now, but in many years down the road..how know's!

I did some research on koi tattoos and found this, and now that I know what they mean I really think it is appropriate for the purpose I am getting the tattoo (for my running):

Although Chinese in origin, the koi is now widely celebrated in Japan, particularly for its manly qualities. It is said to climb waterfalls bravely, and, if caught, it lies upon the cutting board awaiting the knife without a quiver, not unlike a samurai facing a sword.

It became a symbol of worldly aspiration and advancement. Eventually, the stoic fish came to be associated with many masculine and positive qualities.

In tattoo imagery, especially in combination with flowing water, it symbolizes much the same: courage, the ability to attain high goals, and overcoming life's difficulties.

So Viking, you are thinking I should go with something more like this?
