That is no "Courage"

With two previous posts about the same incorrect tattoo, one would get the hint this does not mean "courage":

Yet this young lady got it done at Skin Gallery in Prairie Du Chien, WI & posted a photo in BME's gallery under the impression that meant "courage".

大過 【たいか】 (n) serious error; gross mistake; big mistake or shortcoming; (punishment in school, etc.) a major demerit.


  1. BMEzine should have a permanent link to Hanzi Smatter in their "Kanji tattoo" gallery. *sigh*

  2. I guess it is a serious error, considering it's not courage...
