Scroll to see all 9 Japanese Wisdom tattoo designs
Here we offer 9 different hand-brushed Japanese Wisdom tattoo designs by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase. For these Wisdom 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.
Wisdom in Japanese is 知恵 which is read chie. The Japanese word chie translates as "wisdom; wit; sagacity" and is composed of the kanji 知 (read chi) meaning "knowledge; wisdom" and 恵 (read e) meaning "favor; blessing; grace; kindness". Dictionaries correctly give the translation for both chie and kenmei as "wisdom". In common Japanese usage though chie is more often translated as "wisdom" and 賢明 Wise (kenmei) as "wise" and so we have made this distinction here.
"I have personally given this art of chie to a friend in appreciation for some much needed wisdom. Truly Wisdom in Japanese makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift for your mentor or valued advisor." Eri Takase
