I got this tattoo an a drunken dare a couple of decades ago and I was dumb enough not to do any research first. Could you possibly help translate it for me and tell me what language it is in?


富裕, prosperous, however the second character  is incorrectly separated into two.

Hi!
I love your blog, it's amazing how language can be a funny barrier. My husband says his back tatto mean his mother's name (Malaquias or Altagracias, i forgot which of her two names it was). He got this in the Dominican Republic, a Spanish speaking country. So, although there is a small Chinese population there, I had to question the authenticity of it.

Thanks so much!

Hello,

I got this tattoo 18 years ago without properly researching it when I was a foolish 18 year old. It's supposed to say "faith", but I'm pretty sure it doesn't. How bad is it?

Thanks

Hey, reading your blog has had me in hysterics for a while now so I thought I would contribute. I got the following tattoo from a friend of mine who had just started learning to tattoo, he said pick something unique so I Google translated the handle if my email address in to simplified Chinese. I like it and care not a bit if it us complete gibberish, as it is still a unique tattoo. Just thought you might Like a look. Cheers

























Technically correct, but context is wrong.  

Tattoo says "short, fat/adipose, mechanical curved handle"
