    Can anyone write in Mandarin?

    I want to get a tattoo of the word "lion" in Chinese script. Does anyone have the ability to produce a nice calligraphy or photoshop of that word (symbol), about 4 inches wide?

    I would be in your debt!

    Thanks.

    yep thats the word lion alright, but i feel that tattoo wise it might be better to just use the first letter as the first letter already means lion in mandarin, and it will be sound more brave and heroic, and look more bold and daring(assuming thats direction you're going). the second letter acts more like a noun when describing the lion 'formally', like in the words 'fall' and 'fall down'.

    i know/am chinese so i can assure you that i am not joking.
    i would do one for you too but i cant really show off my lousy calligraphy skills...oops...:o

    these are just my thoughts, feel free to do watever u wish.

    are you suggesting that i am lying? because if you do, you are seriously insulting my race, my language, and my nationality!

    why dont you check a dictionary before you make any accusations? it will do you a lot of good.

    p.s not starting a flame war, but seriously ppl should do some research b4 they start accusing.

    yes blind, i was talking about MR TYBOOGIE here.

    so your too lazy to look up the dictionary huh?! or is it that you are scared to face the truth that you are actually ignorant?
    so to spoon feed this big baby, here's a screenshot from an online dictionary

    Can anyone write in Mandarin?

    oh, and in case you still can't accept it, or you still think i am lying, feel free to click this link and look up the word yourself.

    I would not post it if I'm not sure.
    Chinese is my mother language and I learnt chinese calligraphy when I was a kid.
    Never mind...
    I agree with Zakarian,
    Only the first word is better.
