    Very nice. I enjoyed the art work!

    That’s a nice collection of Chinese tattoos. I didn’t get the meaning of the “Styled Chinese Name” tattoo that looks like a barcode though. The “Chinese Love Tattoo” is a bit confused I think, as it should be 爱 instead of 恋. I also like the first panda tattoo – so cute!

    The bold lines really make these stand out from other tattoos, very striking.

  • Jai

    Magnificent would be an understatement for this collection. If there’s greater than magnificent then that would be it.
