Marta's Koi Lights Up 34th Street
During lunch on Friday, good fortune found me in the form of Marta and her amazing koi tattoo.
Positioned on her left bicep, the bright colors of this piece really popped off her skin.
To Marta, koi represent overcoming adversity and are symbols of empowerment. She is happy to have such a striking reminder on her arm.
This is one of ten tattoos she has. The piece was inked by John Gallo, of Painless Steel Tattoo in the Astoria section of Queens.
Thanks to Marta for sharing her awesome koi with us here at Tattoosday!
