How to read





I think it’s a popular Japanese word for tattoo design!


It seems so. But ah.., I don’t recommend to use this letters for your tattoo.



I know “family” is a good word, but this kanji is too common to be artistic. So it seems a bit odd for us if you use it for tattoos. It’s difficult to tell what the clear criteria are, but you’d better know that some kanji look cool and some are not. And KAZOKU is the one for daily use, not much for designs and art.

Is it such strange? I love the meaning…


Of course, I don’t mean “never use it!” and you can choose the word as you like! If you want your “family” tattoo to look cooler, I think a small size might be better.

If you’re looking for kanji symbols for your tattoo ideas, check the ones with positive meanings like “love” and “hope” too!
