    Chinese tats off the internet

    This redefines 'dumb blonde'

    Woman accidentally gets Jeremy Lin tattoo, becomes 'biggest fan'

    Woman asks for Chinese translation on Internet for tattoo – big mistake

    ‘Answer’ turned out to be Chinese for NBA star Jeremy Lin's name

    On learning truth, she declares self his biggest fan, meets him


    Screenshot from Holland Christensen’s confessional YouTube video. YouTube

    The way Holland Christensen tells it – in an 11-minute video posted to YouTube – she did “something really stupid” a couple of months ago.

    She says she wanted to get a tattoo with a Chinese phrase – because she “likes to travel” – and she asked for a translation from someone on the Internet. “Obviously, you don’t do that,” she says in the video. “You don’t ask anyone on the Internet for anything.”



    Her Internet “friend” tricked her into getting Charlotte Hornet Jeremy Lin’s name in Chinese permanently etched onto her ankle. Holland didn’t even know who Jeremy Lin was. But, after getting the tattoo, she quickly became Lin’s biggest fan.

    “My first thought was actually, well he’s really attractive, so if nothing else there’s that.”

    Holland recently attended a Charlotte Hornets game but was unable to meet Lin. But Lin tweeted this to her after the game:

    And then finally, she met him, while attending another game in Charlotte on April 25, when the Hornets defeated the Miami Heat 89-85 in game 4 of their playoff series:

    ttt 4 2017!

    Slightly OT but I just couldn't resist a decade-old bit of thread necromancy for the Kung Fu (and other Martial Arts) Tattoos thread. It'll sit well on the Tattoo... thread too.

    In Pictures: Tattooed and proud – Chinese women peel away stigmas
    26 December 2017 08:00 AFP5 min read

    Once the mark of criminals or sex workers, for centuries tattoos have been stigmatised in China but the growing influence of celebrity culture is changing all that — particularly for women.

    Nowhere is the trend more evident than in Shanghai, China’s most cosmopolitan city and recently dubbed “China’s tattoo mecca” by the country’s state media.

    This photo taken on November 29, 2017 shows a tattoo displayed on the neck of a tattoo artist at a studio in Shanghai. Photo: AFP/Stringer.

    Body art for women has long been frowned upon in socially conservative China, but studios are mushrooming throughout the city of 24 million.

    Zhuo Danting, widely considered one of China’s top tattoo artists, has witnessed first-hand how the industry has exploded.

    The 35-year-old has 70 percent of her body tattooed and has been operating her own Shanghai studio for 11 years.

    Inspired by celebrities and sports stars, unprecedented numbers of mostly younger Chinese are getting inked, Zhuo said at her shop, Shanghai Tattoo.

    “At the beginning, of course, they just give you a weird look, they’re freaking out,” Zhuo, who also has multiple piercings and dyed green hair, said of the reaction she gets on the street.


    This photo taken on November 29, 2017 shows sketches of tattoo designs displayed on the wall at a tattoo studio in Shanghai. Photo: AFP/Stringer.

    “But now there are a lot of people getting tattoos, it’s getting more and more popular. People see them everywhere so they don’t see it as a big deal,” she added.

    Zhuo, who got her first tattoo at 16 and has inked both her parents, is originally from Harbin, a city in China’s far north.

    There is a growing body art scene there too, she said.

    A cool thing

    “There is a lot of change. Before, not many people get tattoos. They thought that people with tattoos, that person must have been in jail or you are a bad person.

    “Now it’s a cool thing, to represent yourself as different.”


    This photo taken on November 29, 2017 shows tattoo inks at a studio in Shanghai. Photo: AFP/Stringer.

    In imperial times, convicts were sometimes tattooed as a lifelong reminder of their crimes, and tattoos later were used by Chinese triads to signify gang loyalties.

    But Zhuo said attitudes towards women with tattoos have changed rapidly in the last three years, and the Chinese are increasingly experimenting with their body art.

    “Before, when you saw a woman with a tattoo, it was usually just a small one,” she explained, adding: “But now you can see everywhere that they are having full sleeves, or chest, or full back.”

    ‘Pretty and artsy’

    Wang Qi, a web designer, is about to have Zhuo tattoo her already heavily inked right leg.


    This photo taken on November 29, 2017 shows the English writing “Yes!!! Tattoos Hurt!!!” on the ceiling of a tattoo studio in Shanghai. Photo: AFP/Stringer.

    The 29-year-old has several body designs, including an hourglass to remind her of the preciousness of time, and a sailboat and lighthouse inspired by her love of the sea, as wells as tattoos of a snake’s head and a crocodile’s eye.

    Her latest inking: the Chinese characters for her grandmother’s name on the inside of her thigh.

    “Ten years ago, only 10 percent of people could accept women doing this. But now at least 60 to 70 percent of people can,” Wang said, while adding that quality can vary widely.

    The trend has spawned extreme examples, including a couple in northeastern China who covered themselves in patriotic artwork, including a Chinese flag on the man’s face.

    Reliable figures are elusive, but Hu Deliang, former head of the China Association of Tattoo Artists, estimates there are about 200,000 such artists in the country.

    The Shanghai tattooist said women now account for at least 60 percent of his customers.

    “Back in 2002, only about 20 percent were female and most of them worked as escorts in nightclubs or that kind of industry,” Hu said.

    China’s increasing prosperity, meanwhile, means more women now can afford tattoos, which can cost thousands of yuan (hundreds of dollars) and previously would have been considered an unjustified splurge.

    Peng Lin, who has the Italian phrase “La vita e bella” (Life is beautiful) among her three tattoos, is one of the few in her circle of women friends with a tattoo, but many are considering it, she said.

    “Before, people may think women getting tattoos is sort of off-the-mainstream behaviour, but now they all appreciate them when they found out that tattoos can be pretty and artsy,” said Peng, 31, who works in advertising in Shanghai.

    Touch-ups

    Tattoos are still frowned upon in government positions and at many companies, however, while some women complain that their husbands or partners object.

    “Even now people are judging, they don’t think that people should get big tattoos, especially women,” said Zhuo, who has tattoos across both sides of her scalp.

    “Still, people think it’s more acceptable for men to get a tattoo than women and some get smaller ones to hide it from older family members or work.”



    Zhuo said lack of official oversight makes it “too easy” to open a parlour. She often sees customers who ask her to fix shoddy work done elsewhere.

    “Sometimes I can see some good work, but not much. The percentage of good tattoos is quite low right now,” she said.

    “Tattoo is still a new thing in China. A lot of new people become tattoo artists pretty soon, but there’s still a lot to learn.”

    Fresh Spring Rolls

    I dunno. 'Fresh Spring Rolls' is kinda cute. How do you say that in Thai?

    Tourist Goes Viral After Getting ‘Fresh Spring Rolls’ Tattoo in Thailand
    Carl Samsonby 20 hours ago



    A female tourist in Thailand has gone viral on social media after getting “fresh spring rolls” tattooed on her back.

    A picture shared on imgur shows the tourist, a blonde woman, with the epic tattoo fail.



    The picture has received nearly 670,000 views as of this writing.

    It is unclear what the unfortunate tourist actually wanted inked on her back.



    This is not the first time people have gotten botched tattoo jobs in a foreign language.

    Some made unsuspecting customers look hideous, while others brought life-threatening troubles.

    Netizens commenting on ThaiVisa’s Facebook page poked fun at the error, though some suspected that she might genuinely like spring rolls.



    Do you think the tattoo means what it says?
