Most Excellent

天使 - this is one of my tattoos, which means "angel"

餓鬼 - this is another of my tattoos, which means "brat"

But as it turns out, the "brat" tattoo can also be translated into "little devil", which is even better.

(And if your computer doesn't display kanji, お詫びいたします.)

You have multiple tattoos?


I like tattoos on women, well, at least some tattoos in the right strategic locations...

I have 5 tats...none in terribly "strategic" locations, other than strategically unseen in business settings.

At least you HOPE that's what the tattoos say. LOL

I'm pretty confident. Every reader of kanji who sees them says they mean those things, and they have also been cross-referenced with kanji dictionaries. Checking them happened before the inking, too, btw. Important, that.

I'd really like to get a tattoo with Swedish writing, but I can't bring myself to trust any translations thus far.
