I was going to do the 3/axela badge swap on my mz3, but then I thought it might look cool if Axela was written in Japanese, possibly a Kanji script. I was wondering if anyone knows how to get in touch with a custom badge maker or knows if this has already been done. If we found a supplier we could form a group buy if anyone's interested.

It would look something like this:



What do you think?

isnt pronounced the way you think, and its nonsense.

reminds me of people who get "japanese tattoos" that are meaningless random crap.

and do you laugh at non-'white people' who have tattoos in english?

i have kanji as well as asian themed portraits tattooed on me. i am white but i have a love for the oriental culture since i was in elementary school and all my ink has a meaning to it.

so please don't group all of us 'white people' together as the same person.

thanks.

oh and op, do what you like. it's your car. don't let others discourage you from doing things.

now you've piqued my interest. i simply must see what kanji you have tattooed and what you think they mean.

is it something like this?

I dont know about a badge but I can see it working as a small window decal or something. But nobody is gonna know what it means except for you unless someone can read that stuff. What's wrong with the 3?

dude, i like the idea if you were to do this with vinyl and put it on your rear window or something. however, that is not read axela. try using katakana, it'll make your life much easier.

the first kanji isn't destiny/fate. it's life. it's also used in words like "to command" (meirei). when you put those two kanji together the other way around, it's "life"

most people who have kanji for tatoos have no clue what they mean. a guy came up to me and one of my company's chinese speakers and showed us a new kanji tat he got. it was missing a stroke and had no meaning. if you're going to get a kanji tat, check with a native before you get it to make sure you're not going to get something that will embarrass you when you show it off to the "wrong" people.
