That's just bad. I think there's a very bad sex joke here, but I don't know what it is.
I hear it happens often.. at least when i bring it up to people.. they go "oh yea. I heard that too"
people think a chinese character looks cool tatooed.. and instead of whatever word or character they wanted... they get "Homosexual" stamped on them..
I wonder what the guy's tatoo says..
maybe "Mall" ?
Serves them right for not knowing what the symbol meant.
That said, I still don't know what my "tribal" tattoo means, and I got it 14 years ago.... :|
Tribal tattoos always remind me of black metal band logos. You sure you don't see the word Dethklok in there somewhere?
Heh, it's probably the logo for some old 1990's Norweigan black metal band named Buttfinger. That's what I get for being 18, drunk and at a tattoo parlor in St. Cloud.
I personally can't stand when people do this without knowing what the symbols mean. Even if you do know, I just don't think you should do that. It sort of like mocking the culture imo when I'm sure they don't mean it. Sorry, Asian person gets off his soapbox.
"mocking the culture"? Asian people do the same thing with totally random english words and phrases on clothing and other items. Since when is writing something in a foreign language, mocking anything? Now writing something random in a foreign language without bothering to see what it means, thinking it was something else isn't mocking anything except the idiot that got the tatoo.
I laugh everytime a person goes and gets a tattoo without researching and confirming with a Chinese person about a character they want to tattoo on themselves.
If I were to ever tattoo something in Japanese/Korean/Hebrew/Russian/etc I'd make DAMNED sure I knew what I was putting on my body.
That said, I'd only get one tattoo and that'd be my last name on my left shoulder blade.
Yeah, this is why I think Kanji tattoos are as ******ed as they come. When someone shows them to me I automatically assume it means something derogatory and hilarious.
Dude, being a Chinese, I must say that character is COOL!
My surname is cool and suck at the same time, cause during small kids made of me and called me a "pig".
With that said, I simply blame this on adolecent stupidity. At least her heart was in the right place.......or was it something else?
If I ever got a kanji tatoo, I'd make sure it was something hilariouly inapproriate. Like 'How much for your daughter?'
Guess it wasnt a happy ending after all
I remember when I worked on a freight dock and this guy came in one day with a huge Kanji symbol on his shoulder.
I asked him what it meant and he said "I think it means 'master' or something".
I just can't imagine getting your body permanently marked with something you "think" means "master".
With that said, in Asia do the youths go around getting "M A S T E R" tattooed on their bodies in English?
Master P, perhaps. I'm sure there is some mangled Engrish out there. Truthfully, I'm distracted by J-Rock chicks and gothic lolitas.
But why attack the yella fellas? Dumbass knows no color.
