Re: Kanji for family first quote 2012/11/12 01:50
Thank you very much for all your time and help, you've give me lots to think of . It clearly isn't as straight forward as I first thought. I've seen lots of kanji tattoos in my time probably picked randomly off tattoo shop walls, wonder how many actually make any sense? . Now I don't want to push my luck but how do I find out about fonts ?

There are many websites (and threads) dedicated to foreigners who get meaningless or bad/incorrect Chinese/Japanese tattoos.

Here's one of them

Good luck!

BTW, if Japanese laugh at yours, you can say
"I know well, but it's just my policy/faith".
Then they can understand you.
Because their laugh are for surprise of culture shock. (I wrote about this in previous thread.)
ƑD or ƒ means just clearly "family first".
If you can't find any Kanji fitting, they are not so bad. (Although Japanese will laugh at first sight.)

In the first place, Japanese often write/sing/name in funny English and not consider what do native speakers feel.
(Yes, and I can't understand how funny it is.)

F means duty for seniors as Uco explained, so I can't recommend.
J is smart and often used recently after the great disaster on 2011.
It means strong bonds/relationship include family.
And it's chosen as Kanji of the year 2011.

I tried searching the web, as I've done before, to see if I can find nice fonts, but unfortunately I couldn't. In any case, you would want to find an artist who can copy fonts beautifully enough. I hope someone can help the OP.

And again, I truly hope you are comfortable about getting advise from anonymous internet users like me. Because just a simple Google search can lead you to websites like the following where you can see comments like "There are so many services out there that offer translation, but none as affordable and efficient as yours" on a photo that is absolutely hilarious.
