So, you are thinking of getting a tattoo with Chinese characters? You will need my Chinese tattoo translation service. I have many friends that have Chinese tattoos and they look great. However how can you make sure the meaning of the Chinese characters is correct? Asking yourself, is my Chinese tattoo, correct? This has got to be the very first concern you have before moving forward. A Chinese tattoo can look exotic and cool but having an incorrect translation could leave you with a lifetime reminder of your silly error! Thankfully you are now at the right place.
This is a FREE Service NOT a Fiverr gig!
I am NOT offering a Chinese tattoo translation service that you MUST pay for. To be completely clear, this is me being nice and helping you out. I am not charging anything for this Chinese tattoo translation service. You want to know if your Chinese tattoo is correct. Or you simply want me to provide a Chinese translation for your English words, no problem. Just complete the form on this page and I will send you your free Chinese tattoo translation.
Why Would You? No One Can Read It!
You might be wanting a translation of a Chinese tattoo. Chinese characters are really beautiful and have a mystical nature to them. They look awesome when done right. But if you are asking me for the Chinese, I guess you can’t read or write Chinese. That also means probably everyone you know can’t, so why bother? I get it, you want something private and meaningful. Something that means something to you and you will only share it with those you choose. That’s why having a Chinese tattoo is a wonderful thing to do. And again, a Chinese tattoo can look awesome!
What My Chinese Tattoo Translation Will Be
You send me the English words or phrase you would like tattooed on your body. I will then translate that into accurate, grammatical Chinese and then I will send you a high-resolution image with the characters you need in simplified Chinese. I prefer to send an image just in case you accidently mess up the Chinese translation.
All my tattoo translations are checked by a native English speaker, my hubby Gibby and then by another Chinese native speaker after I have translated your tattoo to Chinese to guarantee 100% accuracy.

Simple really, I don’t want you looking like a fool with my language on your body. I love my Chinese language, it’s beautiful. That said, if you choose to have Chinese tattooed on you, then it must be correct!
How about an online Chinese tattoo translator?
Forget it! These will hardly ever produce a set of characters that will exactly mean what you are trying to achieve. There are plenty of people that have tried and failed, just check google images to see all the tattoo fails. The Chinese language is full of subtle nuisances and meanings. Therefore, it’s almost impossible for an A.I. translator to really get the deeper meaning so many are after.

Some Information About Chinese Characters
There is no question that the Chinese written language is the worlds oldest written language, having existed for at least 4,000 years. The Chinese writing systems use a logographic system (a series of symbols that represent a complete word or a phrase). The system consists of large Chinese symbols known as characters.
Chinese characters are so much more than just a writing system. Chinese characters are an expression of how we Chinese have incorporated our culture and traditions in to characters to express ourselves in a deeper and more meaningful way than other writing systems.
Where Do Chinese Characters Come from?
The earliest Chinese characters were created using pictures or pictographs, which were originally inscribed on bone and then later on bronze and other metals. These characters eventually developed into the beautiful calligraphic style that we see today. Those that have inspired you to get tattooed!
Chinese Characters Have So Much History
In China, there are more than 3,000 dialects of Chinese being spoken; however, Chinese writing symbols are all the same across the regions. So people from different provinces in China speak different dialects, but use the same written language.
History of Chinese Characters
Chinese writing characters go back more than 4,000 years. The symbols began as pictures. Pictures were drawn to resemble the items they represented.
A standard set of characters to be used throughout the Middle Kingdom emerged in 221 B.C. when China was unified for the first time, and the first Emperor Qin, issued that the same symbols should be used by all.
In ancient China, students had to memorize many pictures or characters each week and used brushes and ink to paint the “words”.
We only have to learn the 26 letters in the alphabet to be able to read and write. Imagine trying to memorize hundreds even thousands of pictures in order to be able to read and write.
Today a college graduate in China must have mastered more than 4,000 characters to get their degree!
