    Make sure you see the Cyrillic characters properly on the screen before you make the tattoo.

    Good point, Indra! I can imagine some people having this as their tattoo:
    Hei, rett norsken min og du er død.
    I am a notourriouse misspeller. Be easy on me.
    Пожалуйста! Исправляйте мои глупые ошибки (но оставьте умные)!

    Tattoo and Russian Name

    Priviet

    Hoping that someone could help me...

    I am Italian and I am thinking to get a tattoo ; my name (Nicola) in Russian.

    My russian friend sayd that in the Russian culture to make a tattoo of own name is not nice, because give the impression of a man that has been in the jail, so she advice me to don't make it.

    THIS IS TRUE ????????

    (In Italy this is not a problem, but I will move to russia.)

    I agree with your Russian friend - it's not good idea

    A good book on this subject is the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia
    by Danzig Baldayev
    . Some of the tattoos shown are pretty graphic, but it's an interesting read nonetheless.

    I might say go ahead if you were going to stay in Italy, but since you are going to Russia...I really wouldn't recommend it.
