Can anyone tell me the differences between these as far as meaning?
First one means 'Dumbass'.
Second one means 'Whitie'.
......gtfo if your not gonna help.
You got the tattoo already huh?
Oh wow ahaha.
Nah I don't really know, but since I'm in Japanland I'm already conferring with others...kanji is hard because every little thing has meaning, even the direction of the brush strokes.
How do you know it's Japanese? The Japanese can use the same kanji characters from the Chinese, but have a completely different meaning. So, your symbols maybe kanji in both Chinese and Japanese
tis true...my ex lived in japan for 7 years and she told me the same thing
You know my first impression was Chinese when I looked at it, but don't know enough about either to be certain either way. My mom studied Chinese in high school and she said it was the hardest thing ever.
I have traveled both to Japan and China (Shanghai & Hong Kong...also Taiwan) and learned a lot about the writings. Not learning how to read it but the different styles. Kanji, Katakana and Hiragana are used in Japan and are mixed even in the same publication or signs. Katakana and Hiragana are obvious for Japanese....if you see some of the Japanese TV shows how they like to flash symbols, those are Katakana. Hiragana has a cursive like style to it.
its supposed to be from a Nissan video of the GTR and Im trying to find the real version
Just found out this means "devil", "demon", "Creature" in Japanese.
It is a Kanji taken from the Chinese that originally means "Ghost"
If I remember my kanji properly the middle picture is a word which stems from the "Devil", "Demon" or "Creature" meaning as it has the character housed by another Kanji symbol add-on.
It's not Godzilla though, I already checked.
the video used the phrase Demon so I wasnt sure. Thx much!
Found it! They all mean the same thing....they are just short forms of each other.
Your first pic had the word DEMON blacked out. Why?
diddnt want someone to look and say...it means demon.
Cant always trust what on the net.
Yeah, I hear ya. I am picking up on it though. The first Kanji symbol means "Evil" so, just to re-iterate "EVIL DEMON" in which we all know at least all demons are evil.
Did we ever figure out the little hat like thing on the 2nd one?
Figured it out.
an evil spirit

I hope to someday be able to read this stuff... :uhoh:
