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

I'm saving you from humiliation.

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

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?

Personally I'd avoid kanji, hiragana, & katakana, unless that's what you want. It's your body, you shouldn't care what other people think about your tattoos, so if you're getting a tattoo to impress people I'd save the money & put it into new music equipment.

If you're bent on getting a Japanese tattoo then I'd look into that koi tattoo the yakuza get, that looks sick, or you can get an Oni (or some other Japanese mythological creature) tattooed on you, something similar to the left side of the back below.



Waste of money in my opinion (this comes from someone with tattoos), best be damn sure you want it because once it's on it's a bitch to get off. I'm planning on laser surgery sometime this year.

What? No, that's supposed to be "Pride of the Dragon Master"


Isn't it?


I sure hope 私はロマンチックにユーカリの植物と関わってい is what I think it means then.

Don't listen to Crazysam, he's white. Though that doesn't mean Pride of the Dragon Master, it means "Jump of the Green Grasshopper", it's an ancient Japanese proverb that holds its roots in ancient voodoo folklore.

In all seriousness, I'm trolling the hell out of all of you by typing these characters into Google translate and laughing at the results I'm getting. I'm sure they're 100% inaccurate. Google translate isn't known for being good at translating.

Edit:
According to Google translate, 私はロマンチックにユーカリの植物と関わってい means "I have been romantically involved with eucalyptus plants", which makes no sense.

Oooh I've heard of that! But it's not voodoo, it's Seventh-Day Adventist Wiccanism.

If there is a decently sized university or college near you, you can go to a Japanese language professor and have them translate it for you, just make an appointment is all. Is it inconvenient? Yeah probably but if you're about to get something permanently tattooed on your body, it probably doesn't hurt to go the extra mile and make sure it's exactly the symbols you want.
