Kanji meanings for tattoo 2017/2/14 10:28
Hi I hope you can help me with this, I've been studying japanese a little, and I want to have a tattoo with a meaning like "never quit, keep going for your goals, you can do everything or you can achieve what you set your mind" something like that, by now I found this words:

ӎu ishi
ӎu ishiryoku

And some phrases like:
Es ken nin fu batsu
uѓO sho shi kan tetsu

But even when I searched on dictionary(took me a lot because I couldn't get the correct stroke numbers of each one) I believe that I don't understand the full meaning of those and well if I am going to tattoo something on me I would like to know the full meaning. Also I accept some suggestions if possible.

Thanks

I'm afraid that none of the four suit your intention. The first two means "will" and they look pretty dumb as caption-like phrases moreover a tattoo, and the latter two mentions about more specific projects you are working on with the former meaning more about tolerating.

By the way, my post in the following thread is just for your reference.

Beautiful kanji in the suggestion by '..'-san!

Reminds me of that T-shirt with a giant kanji on the chest that a French clothing store sold in the noughties; also very cool!

How about getting something like "sorry, not allowed in onsen"?

How about an "I'm immature and stupid" kanji.

Japanese people will now be impressed with your insight into their cultural norms and respect your honesty (but, still, forget the onsen...).
