    I've got to agree on that. I wouldn't like to be called something that's not me b/c of something on me.

    While this would be freakin AWESOME, it kinda seems like a hoax, a. cause the workers in a chinese restaurant read the japanese - while the characters are similar, for an actual sentence/phrase like that, the representations in the two languages wouldn't be close. I mean, maybe Japanese people work in a chinese restaurant, but I doubt it, it just isn't done really, and b. those are katakana characters (used to phonetically represent foreign words that don't have translation directly into japanese) inked on the girl's back in the photo, and as far as I can tell/remember they signify "ieroomobu" - pronounced eeayroumoboo, which as far as I can tell means nothing. So uhh...yeah. That's my take on it anyway.

    But it would be totally kickass if it wasn't a hoax.

    "...In lieu of copulating he creates; in the circle of his influence conflict is stilled and the harmony of a profound peace established. He is able to love not only individuals of the opposite sex but all individuals, everything that breathes, in fact. This quiet sort of triumph strikes a chill in the heart of the ordinary man, for not only does it make him visualize the loss of his meagre sex life but the loss of passion itself, passion as he knows it. This sort of liberation, which smashes his thermometrical gauge of feeling, represents itself to him as a living death. The attainment of a love which is boundless and unfettered terrifies him for the very good reason that means the dissolution of his ego. He does not want to be freed for service, dedication and devotion to all mankind; he wants comfort, assurance and security, the enjoyment of his very limited powers. Incapable of surrender, he can never know the healing power of faith; and lacking faith he can never begin to know the meaning of love. He seeks release but not liberation, which is like saying that he prefers death instead of life."

    I'm with Maz on this one. The katakana is pure gibberish. (Unless the "mo" is really a "ji" with the chon-chon out of place, and the last character has a maru instead of a chon-chon... then it'd say "yellow jeep". :P)

    I once saw this similar article where this tattoo artist, right before he closed for good, tattoed the word "ugly boy" or something on some poor kid.

    I guess that teaches you to at least have a look at what the sybmol should look like, before getting it done, so you know whether you have been screwed or not, before leaving.

    If you look around the rest of the site, you can tell it's fake.

    Still, that would be a good prank to pull on people.

    Even if it was fake, it probably happened before but that's still insanely funny. How frustrating.

    Although this page looks like a hoax, it's really common to see people tattooing japanese/chinese symbols without knowing what they mean. Some famous actor here had a tattoo written "muryou" which means "free of charge". He had asked the tattooer to put a symbol that meant freedom. :P

    I don't like tattoos but that article was just hilarious. It just proves my quote in my sig so well.

    Didn't some female singer have that happen? She got a tattoo that turned out to actually translate to something odd...

    I don't think I'll ever have to worry about thiss. I'll never get a tattoo, due to my violent phobia of needles.

    I'm against putting tattoos on me, I would not put something on that I can't get off.

    Jing: Yeah, that was dear ol' Britney Spears. She got a tattoo which she thought meant "mystical" but turned out meaning "weird".

    Really?I never heard about that, since when did BS have a tattoo? I bet the media was all over her (which is why I can't understand why I never read about it..it's funny when "celebrities" get ridiculed like that)

    I've seen people getting tatooed with japanese words on their backs without knowing what those words or kanjies mean. Japanese tatooers usually take a lot of fun on writting funny things, and people will think they have something cool on their backs and arms just because japanese is cool.

    Angelina Jolie has a tatto of a thorned cross (or something) below her belly button, and a phrase that when translated out of the language its in (latin, I think) means "that which makes me, destroys me".

    See, I want a tatto like that, but it would have to be something cool like that, not just something wacky. Something that means something.
    Still, to adorn his humble youth,
    Nor wealth nor birth their treasures yield;
    But he who seeks the flowers of truth,
    Must quit the garden for the field.

    Box #1
    "Excuse me, do you know Chinese?"
    "No?"
    "Well, I do."
    Box #2
    "And I was just wondering: Has someone conned you, or have you tattooed 'ass' on purpose?"
    Box #4
    "You're evil."
    "Maybe so, but I'm a bastard (Closest word I could think of) at getting us seats."

    It just seemed appropriate.

    The lesson of this. Before you get a tattoo in a foreign language: Learn what it means.

    That sounds like something I'd read in The Onion. I wish that was for real, because it's too funny for it to remain unreal. lol.
