333 Tattoo Designs with Chinese Characters (Kanji).

Chinese characters are mainly used in the Chinese and Japanese language. There are simplified characters with less strokes (China, Singapore) than traditional ones (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan) with a more complex structure. All of them are pictograms or ideograms, meaning they are not phonetic letters as in our alphabet, but picture-like symbols. The reading or pronunciation of Chinese characters is different from country to country, yet the meaning remains (nearly) the same.

In the Japanese language the term "Kanji" stands for "Chinese character", as the term "Hanzi" is describing the same in the Chinese language. Some Kanji may have slightly other meanings or usage than the referring Hanzi in Chinese - and a few Kanji of Japanese origin appear only in the Japanese language.

Often a combination of two Chinese characters is used to emphasize a special meaning. And - to make the confusion perfect - there are also two syllabaries in the Japanese language: Hiragana & Katakana for endings or grammar etc. A combination of Kanji with one or more Hiragana is quite common while Katakana are mainly used as a phonetic transcription for foreign words like names. You may either choose an expression written only with Kanji or as a combination of Kanji & Hiragana (where applicable). Don't use only Hiragana for a Japanese term as there are too many homophones (same pronunciations for different words) and it may look uneducated.
