Japanese Symbols Used in Kanji Tattoos

The origin of Japanese Symbols or Japanese Kanji are the Chinese characters which are used in modern day Japanese logo-graphic writing together with Hiragana and Katakana Symbols which form the architecture and foundation of the Japanese Language System. In Japanese, the term Kanji simply means "Han characters".

Kanji Tattoos on peoples body are symbols and scripts based based on simple and complex ideographic characters. ( An ideogram or ideograph is a graphic symbol that represents an idea, rather than a group of letters arranged according to the phonemes of a spoken language ).

Kanji Tattoo characters can represent objects, ideas, specific meanings and much more in a single character structure form. By viewing the Kanji Tattoo characters or set of characters, people can understand the meanings of the Kanji right away. ( well those that understand the Japanese language to be precise )

Japanese Symbols show meanings of words in visually expressive ways. The Kanji Dictionary consists of thousands of Characters / Symbols which represent and mean so many different things.
