    And then strength

    And kindness (cant find kanji writing for it)

    would like to be able to integrate the 3 into one tattoo with her initials at the bottom. (L.I.N)

    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated, i have a tribal scorpion on my left arm, and this will be on my right arm.

    If someone would be able to draw it up for me then it would be great

    Hey fella, careful with these Kanji!!

    Kindness is this 親切 (shinsetsu)

    Power 力 (chikara) - The site says strength, but actually means power, so slight mis-translation. It is also the phonetic letter 'ka' and shouldn't be linked up with the swooping stylized bits

    Love mum 愛母 (aishteru haha) - gramatically incorrect, and doesn't make sense to a Japanese speaker. Maybe makes more sense in Chinese though? Aishteru means love in Japanese, but isn't really used, and Haha is Mother (as in your own mother) - the Kanji they have on the site is wrong too..

    Hope this helps fella - post anything up here before you get it and I'll take a look to make sure you're not getting anything stupid inked on you for life.

    Also - sorry to hear about your loss..

    WTD

    Thanks for all your support

    Thanks WTD, dont suppose you could dig a few designs out for me?

    Really want something that is a symbol of Strenght but also Kindness

    Her strength was due to battling cancer, numerous times and her recent was her 8th,, 7 in the last 5 years. With a total of 18 tumours. So i find it very symbolic of her. (dont want to make this thread a sob story)

    Kindess, she was very much liked by all her new her. (even the postie and Asda delivery guy were upset when they found out)

    As i said up earlier, i pretty much would like a symbol of something that says strength through kindess, (tho im unable to find a symbol of that say what i want) she hated tattoos as it is so i want it to be very original and tasteful (she would kill me if it was a heart saying mum)

    Thanks again

    Oh and scorpion tattoo[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
