If you're going to get a phrase in a language you can't speak or read tattooed permanently on your body, it's probably best to consult someone who is fluent first...

While many tattoo artists try their best, if your tattoo artist isn't a native speaker of the phrase you want to get tattooed, you might risk making a total fool of yourself. If you're a native English speaker, it's probably best to get English words tattooed even though Chinese and Japanese symbols are objectively more beautiful than English letters. Still, having no real connection or understanding of the language is not only weird, but also very risky when it comes to the translation. Remember Ariana Grande's "little charcoal grill" disaster?
