Yeah that was just wrong. He payed good money for it I'm sure so that Japanese tattoo artist was a real asshole.

Studied Chinese for many years. The first two are definitely Japanese kanji for "idiot". "外人" means foreigner in Japanese/Chinese

No, "馬鹿" does stand for "idiot", but it is definitely not Japanese, but Chinese. If you don't trust me, I'm Hong Kongese and Chinese is my first language ."外人" does mean foreigner in Japanese and Chinese tho.

That's what you get for wanting a tattoo in a language you haven't bothered to learn I guess.

Did he not Google the images before he got the tattoo??? Idiot foreigner indeed...

Yep. BAKA = the characters for Horse and Deer. In other words a totally useless stupid animal that is a cross between a horse and a dear. GAIJIN - characters which represent the character for external/outside, and the character for PERSON. Thus, a totally stupid/useless/misbegotten cross between a horse and deer which has no functional reason for existing and the word for outsider. Charming!!!!!

Well i'm Singaporean, and to me, that reads as "Malu Foreigner" or "Embarrassing outsider/foreigner" *The first 2 words is spelt and pronounced as Malu (which means embarrassing in Malay.

Then how does "God-Almighty" *actually* look? 0.o If I ever get a tattoo in a foreign language, I'm going to pull out Google Translate, translate the phrase I want into the language, and say "Make it look like this."

The next time anyone gripes, and moans and groans and asks WHY do we need to take classes in English or have spelling or anything else in this area in life because computers do everything for us now. First of all, computers are ONLY as intelligent as the person who programs it. Then, show them this tattoo. If I know most people under the age of 30, they ask, "well what's wrong with it?" That makes the point right there.

I always figured this tattoo meant that you had a anchor in life and that you refused to let the storms of life sweep you away and make you sink. Not that you are an actual anchor.
