Quote of the Day - I've had people say it's your mid-life crisis tattoo. I don't think so, but if it is, it's a pretty harmless one. I just like them. They're not on there for anyone else, but more it's something that's there for me.
The question begins thusly: "I went to a tattoo studio and asked for Chinese characters that say ‘courage, strength and unity'; the tattoo artist assured me he was a native speaker and would translate the sentence accurately." Read the rest of "Tattoo Horror Story" and all the possible causes of action. As a member of Avvo's Advisory Board, I answered this question on its Avvo Answers website, but omitted one possible cause of action from my answer. I followed up with Avvo in an email - this individual can also sue for libel.
This story is one for How to Get Sued.
