gashi ... i dont know what it is supposed to mean though

tenchu61

it is supposed to say "December" according to the little book I have...

tenchu61

i guess my book was wrong.

OK I found it! It means "Death from Starvation" so it still works.

I think it was supposed to be gatsu? but the smiley face character is btf? Gatsu means month - if you are going for december try: 師走 (shiwasu, priests run; it is named so because priests are busy making end of the year prayers and blessings) though this is the traditional name, not used overly much, or 十二月(jūnigatsu) literally twelfth month (this is what most people will learn at school).

Designs good tho'

Sorry, I didnt realise the words wouldnt show up. I'll paste the link to a Japanese calendar if you want to see them.

There you go, you'll never mix up japanese months again ;-p

But death from starvation probably works better for this dhirt anyways...

i really like the image, but without the script

Text says gatsu, meaning month. December is pronounced jyu-ni-gatsu.. Tho i still can't pinpoint the ties with December and the skeleton..

creepy, in a good way!

I would really like to see this on a diffrent color scheme. Great idea.

The design is good, but I hate the japanese(?) symbol.

You used the WRONG ALPHABET

Katakana is for foreign words

use HIRAGANA IF YOU WANT TO WRITE A JAPANESE WORD such as what you used on the shirt

jellyjello

i didnt think it mattered...i rekon katakana looks way better than hiragana

tenchu61

damn sorry Erris. i just looked up the sounds and found the characters that mached. i thought it would all be the same in the end. : /

"nice art-- don't get it. :D interesting 4+ "...

What's not to get? When you die you no longer have a claim to the matter that your flesh consists of. Your soul inherited the lease when you were conceived, ( and as you ate stuff ).

After you cash out, you turn over the lease and that matter becomes a tree or something, maybe even a bush.

very interesting. good for a 4

tenchu61

about the usage of Katakana: Erris saysKatakana is for foreign words, right? well since I am spelling out an English word using Japanses Katakana wouldnt that mean that I used it correctly? Seeing as how that would make it a foreign word for them.

I'd love it and buy it . . . without the writing.
