Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

A 'Featured Ad' on Facebook advertised a rather pricy eatery.

Included was a picture of chef with a Hebrew tattoo on his forearm.

Thought I'd enlarge and decipher it.

Looks like a Hebrew date, consistent possibly with a date of birth for the bearer.

Asking for identity theft IMHO...

Point is, this is trivially easy to decode.

I suppose Beckham's Hebrew tattoo is just a simple quote (but might backfire if he splits from Victoria).

I don't do Chinese but understand some tattoos have not meant what the bearer might choose...

In the late 80s, when I was into motorbikes, it was trendy to have Japanese stickers on mudguards etc. The rider almost certainly didn't know what they said and I expect some of them were not even proper characters. At the same time, there was a fashion in Japan to put English stickers on m/bikes, and some of those certainly didn't make sense.

My sister has a kanji on her shoulder and if anyone asks her, she tells them it's Chinese for 'tattoo'.

I don't know if she knows its real meaning.

Tattoos are rather more permanent than stickers and T-shirts...

That reminds me; when I ran away with the circus back in the '70s, they had a troupe of young acrobats who were always introduced as  "The Los Chicos". Later I discovered there was a similar  troupe in Argentina known as "Los Wee Gets."

I vaguely remember reading of a Polish-American performer who was known (in America) as Idzi Kutas. Not only does this sound like "Itchy Cute Ass" but actually means "Here comes the prick".
