subject Some Terrible Tattoos

I thought I'd send you some pictures I found from of truly terrible Chinese tattoos. There's so many awful mistakes, I don't even know where to begin!


First character of 性感 (sexy) has been split into two!

Why would anyone tattoo "golden pig" on his back, and why is the character for pig, , upside down?!


  1. Truly horrible indeed: There's a tattoo which said "MOTHER" is 牛 in Chinese! There must be some way for us to get rid of these idiots or at the very least stop them from misinforming people.

  2. And why does he think that English characters have Chinese equivalents? This is evidenced in his other "Chinese" tattoo, which he thinks says his name-"jorg":

  3. This place is truly a goldmine. They invent so many characters, soon it will be time for a new kanji/hanzi dictionary.
