Lost in the translation somewhere?


I've always wondered about the folks with oriental writing on their arms.

I'm willing to bet most of them don't have a fucking clue what their tats say!

I worked as a lifeguard when the trend of getting Chinese characters tattooed was at its height, and a fellow lifeguard (who was Asian) used to always ask, "why did you get _____ (usually something offensive) tattooed on your arm?"

--What? No man, that's the Chinese symbol of strength.

"No, that means homosexual."

It was awesome to watch the panic.
