Scroll to see all 8 Japanese Tear tattoo designs
Here we offer 8 different hand-brushed Japanese Tear tattoo designs by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase. For these Tear tattoo designs the fonts are different, but the characters and the meaning are the same. So order the style you like - the meaning is the same for each design.
The modern kanji for namida has a small dot in the upper right removed - this is used in older forms of the character. Eri commented that she likes the older form because this mark looks like a falling tear.
Japanese nouns have no grammatical number or gender. So namida is both singular and plural which means that namida refers to a single Tear as well as to several. Learn more at Wikipedia's Japanese Language.
