Your Training Room Is Where You Are (樹下石上) – Zen Word For Tattoo in Japanese Brush Stroke Kanji
A Zen word ‘Your Training Room Is Where You Are’ 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
- 樹 : tree, wood
- 下 : under
- 石 : stone
- 上 : on, above
Putting all these kanji together, it means ‘Under the tree, on the stone’ How can this sentence be interpreted as ‘Your training room is where you are’ ? Let’s dive into the explanation.
This phrase is talking about Zazen (seated Meditation) under the tree or on the stone. This is how and where the monks went on their pilgrimage/ascetic journey using the nature as their lodgings. By doing so, they can be united with the nature, which is ideal for them. It doesn’t just mean that under a tree or on a stone is a place for practice, but it teaches us that where we are now is a place for zazen.
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)
