Kanji, Katakana, and Hiragana Tattoo Designs

So...this topic can get pretty hairy. Kanji are Chinese characters that are used in Japanese modern writing. The Japanese also have other characters: Katakana and Hiragana.

Katakana is sound based (phonetic). It is used primarily for foreign words that they have no native sounds for.

Hiragana is sound based as well and represents all of the sounds within the Japanese language.
