Family Bonds In Japanese Kanji is 絆. This Kanji means bonds or ties between people that cannot be broken. So it can be used for friendship, a group and team also. This kanji was chosen as Kanji of the year in 2011.
On March 11 2011, Japan witnessed its most disastrous earthquake in recorded history followed by Tsunami. More than 450,000 people lost their homes. Over 15,500 people lost their lives. The nation’s infrastructure was also severely damaged by the tsunami and thus no food supply nor electricity.

What Is Kanji And Why Is It Good For Simple Tattoo?
Simply put, it works like a picture or drawing that has a specific meaning with explanation. Kanji is one of the 3 Japanese writing systems. It is a set of symbols that represent words or concepts and can have a variety of meanings and pronunciations depending on context. Since Kanji represents words and concepts of things, it is an excellent choice for simple tattoo. It works like ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’. For example, the sound of ‘Ka’ by itself in English doesn’t mean anything. In Japanese, however, the sound of ‘Ka’ can have different/multiple meanings depending on the kanji used, like the followings; fire(火), flower(花), a mosquito(蚊), a song(歌), scent(香), splendour(華), applaudable(嘉), etc. Check out other Kanji for your simple tattoo idea here.
No Machine Translations = No More Kanji Fail
Japanese symbols 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.
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.
NOTE : The letter DOES NOT NEED TO BE MIRRORED, it 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
The script in any download files with ‘One Word‘ tag approximately fits in a 2cm (0.8inch) x 2cm grid and, in general, this size is suitable for finger tattoos and behind the ear tattoo.
If you need to make it bigger for arms, chest, and other body parts, please select the pdf as it is illustrator-editable and resize-friendly. Your tattoo artist can make it bigger without the outline getting blurry.
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)
