I just stumbled across your blog and thought that you could assist me in verifying the meaning of my tattoo. I did them myself late one night a couple years back while apprenticing at a tattoo parlor.
First of all, the top character 苦 is upside down. Bottom characters 阿呆 means "fool, idiot".
The tattoo is very fitting & means "bitter [or suffering] idiot".
