Finally! A website that translates all those silly Chinese/Japanese character tattoos. I spent the better part of the afternoon (between running routines, of course) reading through the idiocy some people put on their bodies!
Are you sure your tattoo says what you think it does? It could very well read “Moo Goo Gai Pan!”
I recently had this discussion at work. Why would you put a foreign language on your body? If you want the word “Strength”, find a great font and write “Strength” in English. Having a tattoo in Arabic or Chinese or Japanese doesn’t make you look deep or mysterious. Try being a little creative with what you want permanently on your body instead of picking something dubious off the wall at the tattoo parlor.
