Do What You Should, Be What You Should (八風吹不動天辺月) – Zen Word For Tattoo in Japanese Brush Stroke Kanji
A Zen word ‘Do What You Should, Be What You Should ‘ for your kanji tattoo design is available for an instant download and you have 5 different kanji calligraphy styles to choose from. Your favourite tattoo artist DOES NOT need to know any Japanese.
Explanations and Interpretations
This Zen word has 8 kanjis, which are
- 八 : eight (Many)
- 風 : wind
- 吹 : blow
- 不 : not, never
- 動 : move
- 天 : sky, heaven
- 辺 : around
- 月 : moon
Putting all these kanji together, it means ‘Be like the moon in the sky which will never move no matter how hard the wind blows at many directions’
No matter how the wind blows, the moon will not be swept away like a cloud. If you have a mind that is as unmovable as the moon, you will be able to take any event in stride, not lose sight of yourself, and you will be able to see what you need to do.
Our life is filled with distractions just like wind is constantly blowing all over the place at random directions. Some breezes will feel comfortable, while others will blow as if they are going to cut your body. No matter how the wind blows, keep your heart like the moon shining in the sky. If you do what you have to do, you will be who you want to be.
You can download the file right after the purchase and no need to wait for me to send it to you. Then you just simply forward it to your favourite tattoo artist. The design is 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.
NOTE : the design DOSE NOT NEED TO BE MIRRORED, meaning it should appear on your skin/object just as it appears on the paper.
Depending on your purpose, pick either jpeg or pdf
If you are looking to use the design just as it appears and not wanting to resize it, then the “jpeg” should be fine.
But if you are looking to
- use it on a large object and need to resize
- change the layout / position
(e.g, vertical▶️horizontal / angled, etc)
then the “pdf” should be your choice as it will be less work for your tattoo artist, meaning costs less.
(You need to check with your tattoo artist though)
