Carlito Japanese Tattoo and Kanji Art
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase
Carlito and non-Japanese names in general are properly translated to Japanese using katakana. Translations to katakana are phonetic and so the pronunciation, not the spelling, is important.
Katakana symbols, just like English letters, have no meaning. So you don't have to worry about the name translations having any bad or unintended interpretations.
