Ignorance is bliss(知らぬが仏) – Japanese Proverb/Saying Tattoo Ideas
A Japanese proverb/saying ‘Ignorance is bliss’（知らぬが仏）for your kanji tattoo 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.
Literal Meaning of the Proverb ‘知らぬが仏’
This Japanese proverb can be broken down into three blocks
- 知らぬ : not knowing, not aware
- が : being, is
- 仏 : Buddha
So, it basically means, ‘By not knowing things / not being aware of things, you can be as calm as Buddha’
In Japanese, 仏 means Buddha but it’s more commonly used for someone who is very calm and never gets angry.
For example, if I say ‘John is like Buddha’, then I’m trying to say that john is very kind and never gets angry.
We also have another proverb related to Buddha being calm, “仏の顔も三度まで” (Buddha’s face/calmness up to three time).
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)
