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 Symbols For Finger, Neck and Arm Tattoo
Kanji symbols are excellent choices for, but not limited to, finger/knuckle tattoos (arm, shoulder, neck, rib, behind the ear, etc).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.
It’s almost as if you are having one (or perhaps more?) of those hanging scroll letters on your body for the rest of your life.
Meaning of each Kanji symbol
‘Perfectionist’ in Japanese are made up of the 5 Kanji below.
- 完 : complete, finish
- 璧 : wall
- 主 : main
- 義 : righteousness
- 者 : person
It doesn’t sound like ’perfectionist’ when looking at each kanji one by one. However, if you put 2 kanjis together, you might be able to get the picture.
- 完璧 : Perfect
- 主義 : Principle
- 者 : person
A person who has a principle for perfection. Kanji is a very tricky set of symbols that work like variables in Math and changes its meaning when put together with other kanji. Simply combining multiple kanji together will most likely lead to Kanji Tattoo fails.
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.
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, all files with the ‘finger‘ tag come with both horizontal and vertical layout for your convenience. Horizontal layout is suitable for your finger/knuckle tattoo and inner bicep tattoo while vertical layout is for arm (tricep, shoulder and sleep) tattoo. (Please see the examples above) It 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 of the letters approximately fits within a 2cm (0.8inch) x 2cm (0.8inch) frame or slightly bigger 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 (generally for fingers and behind the ear) and do not need to make it bigger, then the “jpg” is fine. But if you are looking 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)
