Band Camp Girl's Happiness
(thanks to Vince and Ari for the tip and photo)
During a recent interview with American Pie/Wedding Band Camp girl Alyson Hannigan by New York Times' Page Six, it was revealed that Hannigan was unsure about her Japanese “happiness” tattoo.
Q: What does the tattoo on your back say?
A: It's the Japanese symbol for happiness.
Q: Are you sure that's what it is?
A: No, I'm not. I did research it beforehand, and I saw it in two different books, but you never know. In fact, a Japanese woman today asked me if she could see it, and I was a little afraid. I'm like, "Hmmmm - no."
Q: So there's a chance it says something like, "I am a monkey."
A: Yes. "Look how full of sh*t it is that I have this tattoo on."
Luckily for Hannigan, her tattoo 幸 is actually written correctly. Although the calligraphy could use some touch-up and 幸 could also mean "luck(ily), favor, fortunately, wish".
This which reminded me a quote by Vince Vaughn in Wedding Crashers:
"Tattoo on the lower back? Might as well be a bullseye."
