It’s hard to remember for sure when exactly Chinese and Japanese tattoos were engrained in the tattoo art. They fascinate with their form, intrigue with a hidden and even magical meaning. Tattoos in the form of hieroglyphs can be considered as inscriptions. But the stylistic image of Chinese and Japanese characters is very different from the usual image of words using standard fonts.
The hieroglyph can be quite simple to tattoo and understand. Many people choose tattooing of small inscriptions that have meaning directly only for their owner. Everyone can choose something among the most ordinary words that corresponds to his life credo.
But there are more complex paintings as well. They are composed of several forms, which tell the whole story. Thus, you can capture a unique story with a lot of meanings on a small part of the body with the help of a tattoo with a hieroglyph.
A tattoo in the form of Chinese and Japanese characters is the most common phenomenon in our country. However, we must remember that there are Vietnamese and Korean hieroglyphs as well.
The paradox is that in most cases the owners of hieroglyph tattoos are not very interested in learning the culture of the East and don’t speak the language. Why do tattoos of Chinese and Japanese characters attract ordinary people? Probably, it’s a mystery. The image of a mysterious symbol adds some charm to its owner. This promotes arising of questions and stirs interest. For m any people, such tattoos serve as a kind of a charm that protects from troubles.
As you might guess, such work isn’t the most laborious process from the artist’s point of view. Absolute majority of tattoos with hieroglyphs are made in black and, as a rule, their size rarely goes beyond the limits of the cigarette pack. There are cases when the hieroglyph is only an addition to the main picture. A vivid example of this work is a dragon tattoo, a photo of which can be found further.
Such a thing in the culture of the East as a horoscope is popular among fans of tattoo art as well. Many of those, who believe in destiny, predetermination of life and karma, choose their zodiac sign in Chinese or Japanese horoscope as their tattoo.
The neck is the most popular place for a tattoo with a picture of hieroglyphs. It’s obvious, such a picture can be successfully placed almost anywhere. The ankle, forearm, shoulder, area behind the ear will be perfect.
