Tattoo in Chinese means “to puncture the body.” They have been part of Chinese culture for many centuries but it was never a dream that someday they would rise as a fashion. They were used as symbol for criminals known as “ci pie” to mean that they are gone forever.
Chinese tattoos quickly drew the attention of the world due to their unique designs and language. Tattoo artists in the West who could read and interpret Chinese language, copied most of the tattoos directly from the printed profile.
Tattoo artists who can understand Chinese are willing to accept tattoo contracts which are done by the use of profane words and images. That is why before you start engraving your tattoo, make sure you know the meaning of the words and designs you have chosen, if you are not well-versed in Chinese words.
