Kanji tattoos are popular in Japan, China and other Asian countries as symbols for love, luck and protection. They often have a literal translation, but can also have a symbolic meaning. The meaning behind your particular Kanji tattoo will depend on the characters used and their combination. Consult with a professional tattoo artist, who can help you identify the correct interpretation of the Kanji, or consult a kanji dictionary. If possible, try to find someone who is fluent in both kanji and your native language to get a more reliable translation.
