I have plans for getting a tattoo in Tokyo, this christmas! The tattoo I would like to have on my right wrist saying "Wisdom" (Chie) in kanji symbols, " 知恵 ". How do you think a Japanese would react to this tattoo? Does it look weird or have another meaning?
My Japanese friend (she is 47 years old, I'm 20) think this tattoo would look fun for a Japanese, a little bit comic. Like "It's not smart to have a tattoo, saying smart because tattoos in Japan is not smart"
The background for thinking of this tattoo is to remind me what I have gone through in my life- and what I am about to face in the future. A reminder to always stay strong, and choose the right way in life no matter what. To have it on my right wrist and see it everyday.
What do you people think when you see this? ^^
Thanks for any replies!
