subject: Requesting help - possible wrong kanji for tattoo
I was recently in Hawaii, got a tattoo that was suppose to be the kanji for HOPE however now that I am home I have done some searching and everything I am finding is not what I actually got. Could you possibly have any idea what actually I have now tattoo'd to my back?
期 by itself means "a period of time, date".
期望 is "hope" and 希望 is more common.
