Let's see...since YOU dislike tattoos, whoever DOES like them, it automatically makes them a loser. That makes sense.

If I were to get a tattoo in a foreign language, I would get the graphic verified by a friend who understand that language.

Only then would I take it to a tattoo artist.

What kind of tattoo do you have, F1? I don't have any, btw.

I am highly skeptical of that story. Well, actually, I don't believe it at all. However, I am sure mistakes have been made when tattoo artists not familiar with Chinese or Japanese script create tattoos using that script.

By the way, this is generally* how "Insert General Tso’s Chicken Here" would be written in Japanese:

Not exactly amenable to tattooing above one's belly button, is it? :-? Never mind the question of how employees of the Szechuan Express Asian Noodle Shop (presumably Chinese) managed to read Japanese, or the even more obvious question of why there have been no lawsuits or assaults by angry customers...

* I don't know how to write "General Tso" in Japanese, so I guessed at three characters. They are likely wrong, but take up the same or less space than the correct way to write "General Tso", which may require four or more characters. The rest of the characters are correct.

Heya UALOneKPlus!
I have an upper torso tribal...front, sides with full wraps and around back. I also have my daughters name inked.

I agree with you about checking the graphic with various people. Are you considering getting inked?

Yes, I'm considering a "CDRlabs" tattoo with the disc symbol on my shoulder...

J/ki - no, not really. I'm too chicken - it looks very painful. :)

LOL! With the pain factor, everyone is different. One of my friends got a full wrap (which is supposed to be very painful) that gave him a couple night of very umcomfortable pain. His wife got the same wrap...was was laughing and joking around as she was getting ink. :P
