Got a Chinese tattoo? Then read this blog.

If you've got a Chinese, Japanese, Kanji etc. tattoo then you have to check out this blog. Two guys actually tell you what your tattoo means. Terrible state of affairs. Hanzi Smatter I salute you.

The top should read "to excel", the inside should read "strength", the outside "to persevere", and the bottom "to find happiness".

In Japanese, 我慢 means "to persevere" or "patience, endurance, perseverance." However, it means "I am slow" in Chinese. 芽出度い, which can mean "happy" but can also colloquially mean "pregnant" or "crazy."
