Dear God in heaven, what the hell is that miserable mockery of kanji supposed to be?

That is the single most wretchedly awful attempt at mimicking Japanese writing I have ever seen.

Whatever she gets, BEG her not to let the morons who came up with that eyesore do the job.

For one thing, the order is wrong. It is 心願成就 and not 成就心願 as those idiots had it. It refers to your prayers being answered or your wishes being fulfilled. Not exactly "dreams come true", but close.

Seriously, any kanji tattoo should be done by somebody who either grew up writing kanji or in the worst case by somebody working from a stencil made with fonts. That crap they drew is just horrible. It's too bad to even laugh at.

well I think they didn't know the correct order since its different in japanese and that omamori I bought it in japan last march XD she liked it and that's why she wanted to use it so the correct order would be 心願成就 and well where I bought it it said "dreams come true" that's correct right???
Thank you so much for helping :D

You mean they saw the mamori and that horrible drawing was the best they could do? Please don't let your friend get the tattoo from those people.

If she does get it done by those people, please post a picture of it as an example of what NOT to do when getting a kanji tattoo (and so we can hurt ourselves laughing at it).

Well just to let you know in the end he went to another artist and had a great design XD apparently the most accurate translation of that is something like "your wish comes true if you keep wishing to the god" which I personaly find lovely (^-^)<3 anyways Mike Cash thank you for your help and opinion!!!

Looks pretty well done to me. No missing strokes or wrong characters, and it pretty much fits the font in the image above from what I can tell.
