I love your blog, it's amazing how language can be a funny barrier. My husband says his back tatto mean his mother's name (Malaquias or Altagracias, i forgot which of her two names it was). He got this in the Dominican Republic, a Spanish speaking country. So, although there is a small Chinese population there, I had to question the authenticity of it.

Thanks so much!

I got this tattoo 18 years ago without properly researching it when I was a foolish 18 year old. It's supposed to say "faith", but I'm pretty sure it doesn't. How bad is it?
