What is Kanji ?

Kanji is one of the 3 Japanese writing systems. It is a set of symbols that represent words or concepts. Samurai’s 7 virtues are one of the most poplar Kanji tattoos that are simple yet have deep meanings

Kanji is often used to express resolutions, determinations, themes, values, ambitions etc by writing it down on a paper, and place it on the wall to make it works as a reminder every time you see it.

Burly in Japanese Kanji is 屈強 which is read Kukkyou. ‘Burly’ in Japanese Kanji is made of 2 symbols below.

  • 屈 : resilient
  • 強 : strong

Putting these two kanji together, it means ‘burly’, ‘manly’. This adjective is usually awarded to fighters and soldiers for their toughness and tenaciousness. Dwayne Johnson is the very perfect guy for this descriptive word.

No Machine Translations = No More Kanji Fail

Foreign lettering is exotic and can make great looking tattoos. Kanji tattoos are getting popular worldwide but as the saying goes ‘there’s no rose without a thorn’, kanji are very tricky scripts and many people end up with wrong/awkward kanji tattoos. Even a celebrity like Ariana Grande got it wrong. (I’m glad she’s got it fixed with the help of her tutor and she’s happy with that Japanese script tattoo)

For this reason, it is best to consult a native Japanese speaker beforehand whether the kanji actually conveys the meaning you have in mind. To help people get the right kanji and Japanese script tattoos, I started this online store  All letters here at Yorozuya.tech are verified by a native Japanese speaker, and you can download the letters right after purchase.

Instant Download

There is a button to download the file right after checkout and no need to wait for me to send it to you. Then you just simply forward it to your favourite tattoo artist. The letters are 100% accurate and he/she does not need to know any Japanese. The file contains both calligraphy style and line art (Stencil).Stencil is what your tattoo artist must have to ink the tattoo as it serves as the outline to trace the artwork onto your skin.

Horizontal & Vertical Directions

Both horizontal and vertical direction is used in the Japanese wiring and therefore, The file comes with both horizontal and vertical layout for your convenience and preference. Writing starts from left to right for horizontal lines whereas it is top to bottom for vertical lines.

NOTE : The letters DO NOT NEED TO BE MIRRORED, they should appear just as it appears on the print-out.

PDF or JPG?

As a rule of thumb,

  • jpg for fingers, behind the ear
  • pdf for arms, chest, shoulder, and other body parts

Each script approximately fits in a 2cm (0.8inch) x 2cm grid or slightly bigger and, in general,  this size is suitable for fingers, the back of the neck and behind the ear tattoo.

Nevertheless, please check with the example files.

If you are happy with the size of the letters and not do need to make it larger, then the “jpg” will do. But if you think you need to make it bigger or change the layout, positions, colours etc, then select the “pdf” just to be on the safe side as it is fully customisable to your likings. It might also be less work for your tattoo artist and cost less. (Please check with your tattoo artist)
