She is a moron... so I'm wondering if her tattoo really says "love is a slow form of suicide".
If it does, I will be nothing short of shocked...
I have consulted this with Alan, and this is what he had to say about the tattoo:
The tattoo is properly written in Japanese (except for the horizontal line in フォーム which should be vertical in vertical writing like this).
But this is rather puzzling and difficult to understand.
It literally means:
"Love is a late form of suicide."
"Late" is really supposed to be "slow" (遅い can mean either) so I guess this really was intended to be a translation of "Love is a slow form of suicide."
The word フォーム is borrowed from the English word "form," but in Japanese this word is usually used only for paper "forms" or such. It certainly would not appear in a poem in the intended sense of the word "form." A different Japanese word would be used for that. Since the "paper form" word is used, a Japanese person reading this would be very confused about what a "late form" is and what it has to do with love or suicide.

I just ran across your blog and love it!
Question: about ten years ago I took the character for "Courage" that I found in a Chinese Dictionary into a tattoo parlor. I really wanted the character for "courage" on my back, but the dictionary said that the character also stood for "gall bladder."
I wasn't sure that I actually wanted the character for "gall bladder" on my back, so when I saw a character that also supposedly meant "courage" on a sign full of symbols and pictures hanging on the tattoo parlor wall I said to myself, "tattoo parlors don't lie!" and asked for that one instead.
I was recently told by a Chinese friend that my tattoo actually says "Dog Passing."
(I've known for years that the second character says "passing," but only recently found out about the "dog" part. I was told that this particular symbol for dog is archaic, which is why many of the non-Asian students of Chinese and Japanese that I asked before didn't know it....)

My good friend TJ of the 'Western Pennsylvania Paranormal Investigators' leads his team of supernatural detectives on hunts for ghosts and spirits all over PA and the east coast. I've had an open invitation to join him on one of his searches for proof of the afterlife, and I finally took him up on the offer. I thought it would be a cool place to shoot some photos and learn something about ghost hunting. I met him at an old schoolhouse that had a history of paranormal sightings and unexplained happenings. Exploring the decaying building reminded me of my youth spent exploring old warehouses for chill graffiti spots to paint. I got some nice photos, despite there being very little light to work with. We didn't see any specters, but TJ's electronic recording device did pick up some interesting sounds and voices. Even ghosts think skoolz 4 fools TJ attempting to make contact with the spirit world This is where we heard the voice...
A friend came in the shop to get a praying angel inked on his arm... A fisherman came in to get this Jersey Blue Crab... and homie came in to cover-up some shitty hand poked graffiti lettering with his daughter's name in an easy to read graf style
