Hey, reading your blog has had me in hysterics for a while now so I thought I would contribute. I got the following tattoo from a friend of mine who had just started learning to tattoo, he said pick something unique so I Google translated the handle if my email address in to simplified Chinese. I like it and care not a bit if it us complete gibberish, as it is still a unique tattoo. Just thought you might Like a look. Cheers

Technically correct, but context is wrong.  

Tattoo says "short, fat/adipose, mechanical curved handle"

Hello I'm hoping you can help me find out what this tattoo means, my brother had it done a number of years ago and it's supposed to Chinese for Michelin, we've been translating Michelin in Chinese and it looks nothing like this and we've been trying to find out what it actually says, can you help us?
Thank you

Amy :)

Typically Michelin is 米其林.

honey; sweet; nectar
conduct, run, control, manage

However sometimes mean "fuck" in slang.
