Moving Forward (一志不退) – Zen Word For Tattoo in Japanese Brush Stroke Kanji
A Zen word ‘Moving Forward’ 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 4 kanjis, which are
- 一 : one
- 志 : ambition
- 不 : not, never
- 退 : go back,
Putting all these kanji together, it means ‘Once you made up an ambition, don’t go back and keep moving forward’.
This Zen word remind us the importance of waking with purpose.
How will you spend the rest of your life? Do you have something that you want to accomplish? Think for yourself and be firm in your aspirations. And once you set your mind to something, never back down, but keep going. If you continue to walk with your aspirations, the path will surely open up for you. Do not be misled by the opinions of others or lost in temporary desires, but continue to walk with your aspiration. That’s what this phrase is all about.
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)
