Re: Tattoos

the ki kanji. it looks like this , but you new this of course. Or maybe one that says "Bushido" in kanji. But if it's for you, why are you letting other people tell you what to write on yourself?

Re: Tattoos

More abstract image of 2 things intermingled or something like that.

Getting Kanji seems dorky to me for some reason, unless a master like Horiyoshi III did it as part of a bigger piece.

Re: Tattoos

Just remember to verify what the kanji means, especially if you have two or more inked. Kanji have different readings ( on/kun/name ) when more then 1 are involved.

I think the circle, square, and triangle with the kanji for makoto in the center, with some stylistic/abstract drawings of aikido throws worked into it.

Oh, wait...that's the one I DO have
