Be Extra Careful With Asian Tattoos

I will admit that I have wanted to get some sort of Asian type tattoo because I think the Asian symbols are really cool. Plus it is a great conversation piece because people will also want to know your tattoo says/means. But to be honest you have got to be super careful about what you get tattooed on you. Mainly, because there are a lot of cases where people get some Asian symbol tattooed on them thinking it means something to find out later that it means something completely different and often something embarrassing.

So if you want to get an Asian type tattoo you need to make 200% sure what you are getting is really what you think you are getting. I would first do a lot of research about what word you want and make sure that every search you find is the same symbol. Or even better, if you know someone of Asian descent then ask them for clarification. I for one wanted to get the symbols for Karma tattooed on me but after doing research I found several different symbols. So to be on the safe side, I decided not to get that because I didn’t want to be walking around with a tattoo that I thought said Karma and in reality meant evil one or something like that. Also you have got to take in consideration that some American words may not translate in Asian culture so you might have to think of something else. So if you want some sort of Asian styled tattoo make sure you know what you are getting into.
