What is Yojijukugo(四字熟語)

Yojijukugo in the broad sense simply means any Japanese compound words consisting of four kanji characters.

There exists tens of thousands of them in Japanese ranging from those spoken in everyday-life-situation (casual) to the one used only in writing, sounds very formal, sophisticated and impressive.

Suitable for Kanji design

Why I recommend Yojijukugo for your kanji designs?

Because they sound

  • natural
  • straight to the point
  • concise and neat
  • have a nice ring to it

I wrote a post on why I am not a fan of translating English to Japanese when It comes to Kanji design and the reason I recommend revers – look ups instead.

Which format is right for me?

If you are looking to use the design just as it appears and not wanting to resize, 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 less work for your tattoo artist, meaning costs less.
(You need to check with your tattoo artist though)
