A tattoo for "BITCH"? But Chinese don't usually use the idea of a FEMALE DOG to insult a woman. "Biǎo zi" can be commonly used as an insult in Chinese, e.g. "That bitch can't just run away. 那个婊子(nàgè biǎozi -that bitch) 不能就(bù néng jiù -can't just) 这样(zhèyàng -this way) 跑(pǎo -run)". "Biǎo zi" actually means PROSTITUTE. The tattoo of "jì" 妓 is a different character, but also means prostitute, e.g. a brothel is 妓院(jì -prostitute, yuàn -institution).

“Got a Chinese character tattoo! Meaning = Bitch. It was a dare  ”

A Chinese tattoo of the word "friendship" 谊 (誼) [yì]. The most common term for friendship includes this character - 友谊 (友誼) [yǒuyì]. Here is a phrase, which includes this character, that is used as a Chinese idiom: 深情厚谊 [shēn qíng hòu yì] used to refer to a "long and close friendship". The phrase could be literally translated as "deep feelings, thick (deep) friendship":  deep - 深, feelings - 情, thick (deep) - 厚, friendship - 谊. Wouldn't it be great if all our friendships were based on this? Friendship Tattoos, Our Friendship, Character Symbols, Chinese Characters, Besties, Envy, Tatting, Piercings, Tattoo Ideas

Fearless. Psalm 23:4.

"Wishing you prosperity"! A Chinese New Year greeting often heard. 恭喜发财 is pronounced in Mandarin as "gōng xǐ fā cái", or also commonly in Cantonese "gung1 hei2 faat3 choi4". Could be translated more literally as "congratulations prosper"; or even more literally as 恭 [gōng] respectful, 喜 [xǐ] felicitations, 发(發,髮)[fā] develop, 财(財)[cái] riches. At the start of the New Year, it's important to get your priorities right!! (By the way, the photo is just of a semi-permanent henna tattoo.)

Chinese Character for "Original"

Thanks to StainedSkin Tattoo and Horns Up Productions! :DDD

A beautiful tattoo for a beautifully transliterated name (just the first name of this blue haired girl). First up is "love", 爱(愛)[ài]. The second sound, 艺(藝)[yì], is for artistic craft. The last sound in the name, 忍[rěn], is to forbear/tolerate. So "Ài yì rěn" might be for some original name such as Erin or other similar sounding name. "Love, artistry and forbearance", just like some kind of pottery-making Buddhist nun - who also happens to party hard, have a full body tattoo and blue hair.
