I’m curious about my tattoo I got wen I was a teenager. I was under the impression that it meant prosperity and of course I never thought to double check. Funny thing is I was out to dinner and a server brought up the mention that it looked to be about a boat. Now I would rly like to know what if anything it means. I hope you can help I cannot find anything anywhere.

Thought you might enjoy seeing a "discussion" about a hanzi tattoo that took place on twitter. I was trying to figure out the mechanics and ethics of sending a picture of the impromptu tattoo so I could get the joke, too when I found out it had already been done.

Really enjoy your blog, and when I wait on guys with big, fat tattoos that are candidates, I tell them about it. And write out the address, lol. Wouldn't want them to miss out on the fun...

I don’t have the heart to tell the woman next to me on my flight that her tattoo in Chinese and Japanese says “miso”

Unless she just really likes miso soup
