James Durbin Gets NY Ink – VIDEO

James Durbin gets a Koi tattoo on the TLC reality show, NY Ink. During his session with the tattoo artist, he talks about being bullied when he was younger. So bad, he was physically assaulted at one point.

He says when he eventually picked up a guitar, things got better, because he got lost in the music. Even if it sounded terrible, the music reflected how he was feeling inside.

The Koi sleeve James had inked has special significance;  Legend has it that the Koi fish swim upstream to a pool at the top where it becomes a dragon. “I decided I wanted to swim upstream rather than be like everyone else,” says James.
