This is my latest Birthmandala. Painted a while ago for Simone

In this mandala I painted a koi tattoo.

It's symbolises:

• Courage to brave all the challenges of life• Determination and endurance even in critical situations.• Good luck• Independence and freedom.• Strength to withstand the test of time

Read more about it here Now that's what I call a tattoo! ;)
Hope the mandala will remind you of your own strenght and will bring you good luck Simone!
