A friend got me this tattoo years ago and I was told it meant "fear no man". Being young and dumb as most 18 year olds are, I didn't bother to make sure. Now after looking into it a little more, I'm not sure what it is. Please help!!

棺材佬 means "coffin man".

However, the middle character of 木見才 or 木貝才 does not exist in Chinese character list.

Tattoos with exact same error can be seen here & here.


  1. At first glance, the middle character looks to me like 榭, not that it makes any more sense that way.

  2. I think the tattoo fraud wanted the middle part to be 耳 but I don't think that's a character either

  3. Not only the same error, its the same tattoo...
    ...send in from the same James...

  4. So James not only got a tattoo he couldn't read, he also forgot that Tian explained it to him already as the equivalent of 'COFIN MAN'?
