subject: wisdom and transience?
I stumbled across your blog, and through my reading, I remembered my friend's new tattoo.
So, he claims the crane represents wisdom, and the characters mean "transience," (He posted the photo on Facebook, and in reply to a friend's comment asking what the characters meant, he said, "In this case it means transience.")
Additionally, he received his new branding at the *famous* Ed Hardy's Tattoo City SF (Yes, the Ed Hardy.)
So, is this correct?
How does 桜 (cherry) relate to "transience"?
