japanese symbols

so to start off, let's leave all jokes and cliche's aside.

i'm looking to have a couple symbols tattooed on my shoulder but i'm having trouble finding the correct symbols. preferably, i'd like to have them done in okinawan. however, i do realize this will be very difficult so i'm willing to settle for a more standard japanese dialect.

my problem is that, when i do the research for the symbols i'm looking for, there seem to be many different versions and i have no way of knowing what is correct.

does anyone know where i could have these things translated? is this something the tattoo artist will be able to help me with? this isnt my first piece but i like to go in with atleast somewhat of an idea of what i'm looking to get

I think getting Japanese and Chinese characters tattooed on you is really tacky

This is really what you're doing:

I'm saving you from humiliation.

But this one means pride if you think it's cool:

御珍々

I'm willing to bet that Japanese people laugh at all the silly Americans who tattoo things like that on their bodies.

Edit:
TS is a NuMetalcore guy. That explains why he wants Japanese characters tattooed to his body.

Is pretty cool, it expresses that you're a person that loves your fellow man and a that you experience "one-ness" with them.

So, essentially, that you want to have sex with anyone and everyone?

That would work if you want something longer. It means "majestic dragon soul".
