Kanji tattoos

Friday, May 2, 2014

Yes, it's correct. But it's weird.

Recently I've found this strange Kanji/Hanzi tattoo on tattooshunt.com:

chinese / japanese writing tattoo
Kanji/Hanzi tattoo which means bottle/vase???

I don't get it. This Kanji/Hanzi (which, by the way, is properly written) means jug/vase/jar/bottle - and so on... Unlike most ideograms, this one has no secondary meaning; it simply means recipient for liquids and nothing more. So, why would anyone get such a tattoo on his body?
