"Fraud Blessing"

I am not sure if this person wanted (fraud) or (blessing) on his arm.

is the simplified version of .

The lower partial in (simplified ) should be , not .


Use "HANZI2006" to save 10% on any t-shirt purchase at Jlist.com, and save 25% for 3 shirts or more.

  1. I personally find it a more believable 祚 (which I cannot for the life of me get to render as its other form of the left half of 神 and the right half of 作 on my computer). It looks like it's got the correct number of strokes for it, just that the final two strokes of the left partial have been blended to form one angular stroke.

  2. I think it's fairly obvious he wanted 作爱, 'make love'. Though it doesn't really fit what *is* written, when has that ever stopped a tattoo?

  3. Long time visitor, first time commenter. As a gaijin living in Japan and struggling to learn kanji one thing that strikes me about these people who get kanji/hanzi tattoos is that they are LAZY! They dont put the time or effort into learning the language but rather want to pretentiously show off as though they have earned that kanji. Keep it up I say! Its so entertaining to see so many people with "cheap" permanently inked into their skin.
