Great site: Hanzi Smatter

If you're not checking Hanzi Smatter, you should be. It's a popular site featuring the ridiculous, and often hilarious, kanji/hanzi "Asian writing" tattoos inked by "artists" who have no actual knowledge of the characters (or their aesthetics), then worn forever by fad-lovers just as clueless. (To the credit of blog owner Tian, s/he treats the miscreants more kindly than I did just there.)

Yep, when marking your body with words that'll last until death, it's best to go with an illiterate who can't read or write the words. Now you'll excuse me while I go ask my cousin Joey to carve some Sanskrit into my flesh.
