Your blog is fascinating. I have attached a picture of the tattoo I have on my left shoulder blade.
I got it while in New Orleans and like the shape of it, I'm just not sure how it translates. When people ask, I usually tell them: Stupid American (although at the time I was told it means beautiful or beauty).
Thanks for any help you can provide.
If this character is intended to be "beauty", 美, then it is missing a horizontal stroke. However, the joke does not stop there.
Chinese character for sheep is 羊, and what Kim B. has on her shoulder blade does indeed look like sheep with a little dropping.
