WHAT DOES FISH TATTOO MEAN IN DIFFERENT CULTURES?

In Buddhist teachings, fish means the enlightenment of the spirit and helps to free oneself from idle passions. In Chinese culture, she is a symbol of wealth and rebirth. The fish was also a sacred symbol in Ancient Greece, and the Hindus consider it a symbol of the marriage union. In Japanese culture, fish is the personification of strength and courage, but Africans considered fish to be the embodiment of the souls of the dead. The image on the body of a fish swimming against the current in Japan indicates masculinity and strength of a person. Zodiac interpretations of the fish tattoo are no less interesting and original. Tattoos of such fish are popular: carp, which is the personification of courage and good luck; shark – a symbol of power; a dolphin, symbolizing friendliness; trout is a symbol of energy; salmon, symbolizing abundance and inspiration.
Carp, tattooed on a human body, brings him good luck and achievements, adds determination and endurance in the fight. A tattoo with two carps means a harmonious union of a man and a woman, and the image of nine carps gives their owner wealth.
Carp is very often painted in water or in combination with the symbols of Asian countries, and the interpretation of tattoos with this fish is divided into two main ones: Japanese and Chinese.
In Japan, carp is revered as a male symbol of struggle and great willpower. Such a tattoo is suitable for motivated people who are able to change circumstances and move towards their goal, despite the difficulties.
And in Chinese culture, carp is considered the king of fish, so it is the embodiment of power and superiority. Therefore, such a tattoo on the body gives a blessing for ambitious plans, and the larger the image, the more luck in business.
Shark is a symbol of fearlessness and luck, especially in business. In Japanese myths, the shark is the messenger of God who helps the one who honors it. People who put such a tattoo on their bodies usually do not like restrictions, are very persistent and rebellious. The meaning of a shark tattoo is an expression of rage, fearlessness and perseverance. Different peoples attribute different meanings to the image of sharks, which should be carefully studied.
