Understanding Kanji Tattoos, Hiragana and Katakana Japanese Symbols
The origin of Kanji Tattoos or Japanese Kanji are the Chinese characters used in modern day Japanese logographic writing together with Hiragana and Katakana scripts. In Japanese, the term Kanji simply means "Han characters".
Kanji Tattoos are symbols and scripts based based on simple and complex ideographic characters ( An ideogram or ideograph is a graphic symbol that represents an idea, rather than a group of letters arranged according to the phonemes of a spoken language ).
Kanji characters can represent objects, ideas, meanings and more in a single character structure form. By viewing the Kanji Tattoo characters or set of characters, people can understand the meanings of the Kanji Tattoos right away.
