My boyfriend is thinking about getting a blinky tattoo-
so i figured i would make him one for christmas.
I had to wing the entire thing- since the fish patterns i found were not the right
body shapes or anything. I went only from a picture of him and this is the result:

i wish i had written down what i was doing-
but i am new to crochet (only been crocheting regularly for 6 months or so)
and i am not very good at counting stitches or rows...

He rocks!!  You should totally put him on a plate with fake lettuce when you wrap it!

thats a great idea!!!! i may put him into a chinese takeout box- and put some fake lettuce in there or something...

oh dude, that's awesome. i'm bummed you don't remember what you did, my friend would love that. ha, i can hardly read a pattern anyhow!

great job.
i might try to count the rows- but i dont want to confuse anyone!
the body was done in spirals and i just pulled the bottom to be cone shaped instead of just circle...
then the actual "lip" parts the top part was a triangular part just decreased from a foundation row...
the bottom of the top lip is connected to the top of the bottom lip as a circle...
the fins were triangle also. the back fins were the hardest to mimic.... those are done in spirals...
hope this helps!!!

let me know if you have any questions.

YOU are a doll, thanks so much! i have a whole bunch of books, you'd think i could just look stuff up. i'm resistant to learning a whole 'nuther language, so to speak. i love to crochet though and i spend way more time on the interwebz looking for picture and video tutorials than it would take me to just memoraize some abbreviations! i'm such a lame-o.

if i attempt a fish i'll post my progress and bombard you with questions. hee.

sure! man i was resistant at first- i did the same thing...
i still dont like following patterns- i usually go my own way halfway through...
i dont like rules!

i am so addicted to crochet.its inevitable that youll actually learn the language if you do it enough though!
