Kanji tattoos

Don't waste your skin (neither your time and your money)! Don't use this Kanji-chart as a start point for a tattoo!!

Hello, everyone! In this post I want to warn you against a so-called "kanji chart" which, for the sake of the truth should be rather called "Laughably distorted Hanzi/Kanji chart". Below you can see the (in)famous chart:





At the first sight, the so-called chart and the accompanying text seem pretty credible, but don't let the appearances fool you: nearly all the ideograms presented in this image are distorted and several of them are wrongly translated.

So, if you want to get a Kanji/Hanzi tattoo, don't waste your time, don't waste your money, and, above all, don't waste your skin - and don't use this chart as inspiration for your future tattoo.

This is NOT a Kanji / Hanzi tattoo. This is just a doodle.
What possibly could be wrong with this tattoo?
