My homage to the classic Japanese carp tattoo. This little fish is a result of chatting with my brother James who always has an interesting insight. and mentioning that I was thinking about a new um. tattoo. always a hot topic, the conversation actually started with Alicia when I stated a serious desire for a small laughing carp on the back of my calf.
Alicia vetoed this - not sure if because of the subject matter but definitely the placement. Above is the pre color drawing and the sketch below is the original idea. (I added the uncolored version after several people requested more process - but seriously it's just draw, scan, color)

best, kate
