AWFUL MODS: Something to note if you are going to get a hanzi/kanji/hangul characters tattooed onto yourself:

awfulmodifications:

First of all:

Hanzi is Chinese.

Kanji is Japanese.

Hangul is Korean.

While Hanzi and Kanji share some of the same characters, the two are not entirely synonymous.

Please be aware of the fake “asian character tattoo sheet” that has been going around. Such as this one. It’s bullshit and…

That’s insane that tattoo shops use this to translate the requested phrases:

Even before I started taking Chinese I knew that each character was a whole syllable. Also, almost everybody knows that Chinese has 3,000 characters, so how could it possibly translate into the English alphabet?
