Raphael Biagini didn’t know what he was getting himself in to when he set the hook on a fish in the south of France. As it turns out he had hooked in to the most legendary fish in the lake, and after a ten minute gruelling battle, he stepped in to the water and lifted this huge 30lb orange koi from the water. This fish was no stranger to the locals, in fact some had spent over six years trying to catch the legendary “giant goldfish.” The fish was released.
We’ve seen the blue koi before, but never in tattoo form. A good tattoo is a work of art, but a good coverup is a masterpiece! This tattoo used to be a very dark tiger, but was covered up by this blue koi from Thai Tattoo Studio.

Part 1 of 9 : Here we meet the host and his team of local Japanese people that will help him through out his journey. Most of all we meet Aki, his guide. The first Japanese fishing experience is a restaurant with an interesting twice. There you can fish a pond in the middle of the restaurant and have your catch for dinner. The next day they head to to the Tsukiji fish market in search of Bluefin Tuna.
In the west we try to get as far away as possible from the idea that our pray was once alive. And in Japan they celebrate it.
