A Fish Out of the Water
When someone doesn’t fit in somewhere, or stands out for some reason or another, we say that he’s a fish out of the water. The phrase is pretty self-explanatory – fish can’t live outside the water. Just like we need an air tank in order to stay under water, a fish might need a water tank in order to stay on land. This tattoo is pretty clever!
We only have one question – why would a fish want to be on land? Don’t they know it’s better in the sea? I guess it goes to show we all want what we can’t have, the neighbor’s grass is greener and all that. Well, that’s one interpretation of the tattoo. Another explanation is that the person who got this tattoo relates to this fish, since they feel like a fish out of the water most of the time.
