Chinese Character Tattoo + Mistranslation = Epic Fail! #14 Is Unbelievable…

 

In our previous post “30 most astounding Tattoos you have ever seen!” we presented you some amusing input about failed tattoos. In this post, we would like to extend this topic by introducing Chinese mistranslation into the equation.

Chinese character tattoos are quite common since many people sympathize with certain aspects of Chinese culture. Even though you may think that these tattoos are cool, be sure to check the meaning of the character beforehand.

 

Moreover, a non-Chinese Tattoo artist may not be the best person to ask about the meaning of the character. So be sure to check twice before tattooing something unwanted.

As we showed in our popular post “40 Most Bloodcurdling Chinese Mistranslations Ever!” Chinese can  be a difficult language and translating it into English can be even harder (or funnier).

Do you know anyone with a Chinese character tattoo? Would you ever tattoo a Chinese character on yourself? Which of these is your favorite one? Leave a comment below…
