    I currently have no tattoos but was thinking about getting one recently. However, I know I'll never follow through with it as I like my body without anything on it. My idea was to get symbols in Japanese that meant "Balance, Strength, Wisdom, and Kindness."

    So... I'm just curious who all has tattoos here and if they have any significant meaning to them. Havn't seen a thread like this in a while so sorry if one sprouted up recently.

    I have three tats (as of right now, but will prob get one or two more)

    1. astrological with drama masks (Gemini - co-designed)
    2. spiral sun with words "Esprit Libre (designed)
    3. Greenman with keyhole for a mouth (spirituality - co-designed)

    I guess I am saying, it is best to get a design you like (or help create your own custom piece) to make good use of symbols that are commonly used. Sadly, the world has been around long enough that many symbols are re-used (Native Americans/Nazis and the swastika for example).

    Personally, I chose to stay with black/white/grey shading due to personal preferences and aesthetics of my body. You can put as much or as little thought into as possible, but be warned you get what you put into it (ie: money, time, care, etc.).

    I would avoid that particular rabbit hole, not only do you not know if you are getting the right symbols in Japanese, but you also don't know how those characters will be interpreted in other Asian languages.

    You don't want to be just another statistic featured on this blog http://hanzismatter.blogspot.se/

    I've got a mosquito on my chest. Got it the year I graduated from college. Both my parents have tattoos. My Mom has three, all bugs, because that was her nickname as a kid. That summer I was climbing Denali and saw mosquitoes on the descent at over 14,000ft. Was impressed with how hearty they are. So, long story short, mine reminds me of my Mom, Denali and that with anything good comes something less good (i.e., mosquitoes in a beautifully peaceful place.)

    I've stopped at the one though I have three or four others in mind. Doubt I'll ever actually get any of them though. I'm pretty happy with what I've got.

    That was one of my biggest concerns and reasons why I highly doubt I would get something like that.
