What sort of kanji either looks cool or simple that you think might be good for something like this?
If you're a fan of Street Fighter, get this tattoo on your back.
It's Akuma's sign. I think it means Demon or something in the like.. It appears on his back when he beats the shit out of someone in the game. He turns and it burns into his back. This is an old, stylized vector I did of it.
That said: SHUN GOKU SATSU!
I should get that on my back. I heard it is pronounced 'ten' and means, heaven or sky. Which reminds me that I should really find my Japanese dictionary to confirm this.
Yar, that Kanji is Ten. Akuma is Devil though... so I don't see why they used it as his symbol.
I like to THINK it means his ascension of extreme power.
If you beat SNK Vs Capcom 2 with Shin Akuma you get a really weird ending. I think it sort of relates to that.
Ah, it really depends on what you're going for >__>;. I mean, something like 力 which basically means "strong" or "power" is pretty simple to do. Just don't make the mistake of confusing it with kana for "ka" since the readings are "ryoku", "riki", and "chikara". Now which type of readings I can't fucking remember, but I should know how to pronounce it based on how its written. Actually, I think this is a good tip, but if the kanji you're not sure on (reading-wise) appears beside another kanji you will most likely go with the chinese reading, but if it appears beside a kana character then you will go with the Japanese reading. Something like that.
Kana is original!
Looking at this thread I have no earthly clue how I would know that meant 'ten' but to have looked it up.
Sweet Lord, another one came back from the land of...well...the land which is not WF, but wowzers! Speaking of kana...you can always have a tattoo of your name written kana, or the name of someone you appreciate most. Though I'm sure it's possible to transform your name into kanji.
The Street Fighter idea would be cool but expensive.
Only get a tattoo if you're serious about it since it hurts even MORE (and probably costs more) to get rid of it from what I've been told. That, and skin winkles...badly. Oh, but if I were to get a tattoo it'll probably be something Shin Megami Tensei related like Jack Frost.
Dragonball or a Sonic Tat.
Oh, that is so gonna hurt...especially the Sonic one. Well, that's what my imagination is informing me since those eyes are going to take some mighty fine detailing.
Maybe just a chaos emerald or something. I'm up for suggestions.
The golden ring would work, too. It'll be easy enough to hide your power level while still being recognizable to fans and such. Still, I like the Chaos Emerald idea a lot.
How about a golden ring with a dragon ball in it.
If you do that then you should totally go for broke and get all seven dragon balls! Oh, SO THAT WAY I CAN NAIL YOU WITH YOU A SHOVEL AND USE YOUR UNCONSCIOUS MEATBAG TO SUMMON THE DRAGON AND GET ME A WISH, YEAH, DO IT.
Ah, but you could always tattoo Bulma dressed as Amy or something.
Odd enough I did get an offer to join up at a tattoo shop a while back.
o-o; Join up? Like, work there or get some free hookups?
