No, this doesn’t say more people are getting tattoos of fish. It says that fish are the ones getting tattoos!
Pet shops in China are selling fish that are tattooed with lucky characters and patterns. These inked fish are thought to bring good fortune and happiness to their owners. The most common character? A regional newspaper said it’s often something that means “May your business boom.”
The “fortune fish,” as they are called, are typically parrot fish due to their survival rates and are tattooed using lasers. So far there are no studies on effects to the fish, but many die in accidents from the laser machine.
So…cool? or cruel? What are your thoughts? For only around $2 , I might have to get one for my office (joking)!
