I have this chinese character tattooed on my right calf (君 - pronounced as jūn). I got it in Austin, TX. Like many tattoos - I got it as a dare from my friends. They said they will pay for it if I got one. I was looking for my name in Chinese - and this is the closest one. According to what was written on the catalogue - it's the Chinese word for king. Soon after I realized that it doesn't exactly say that. The Chinese word for King is 王 ( pronounced as wáng ). The character that I have on my leg can be translated to many words: monarch, gentleman, lord, ruler, don. Hey - I think I got lucky - since one of those words is Lord - which is my name.
