This section has 400 Pictures of Katakana translations of common first names for tattoos.

While every effort has been made to verify any translations here we will not accept any legal responsibility for their accuracy.

Virtually every common western, English Christian name is here translated into the Japanese script of Katakana. As many names either are or increasingly becoming unisex we have mixed the male and female into the same gallery.

Design to tattoo

Symbols in general will be in all likelihood the easiest group here to reproduce on the skin as they are largely non pictorial. There are obvious exceptions such as some of the more intricate Yin Yang symbols or the pictures that represent the different signs of the zodiac. In these cases normal techniques will be needed but with the other symbols a trace will be very easy to create and therefore transfer to your skin in the required place and position.
