A reader of Hanzi Smatter recently sent in a poster of American television show, Arrow, where the lead character, Oliver Queen, has four Chinese characters tattooed on his abdomen.

The characters are 鼠姜姚猪, which literally translate as "rat/rodent", "ginger", "handsome/good-looking", and "pig/swine".

There are speculations on what the significance of this tattooed phrase, since I have never watched the series, I can only rely on interviews posted on YouTube.
