    The first word is "hope" or "ambition" in Chinese writing.

    The second is the Chinese word for "me" or "I". I suppose they use that character in Japanese as well, but usually they use "watashi" to mean "I/me", and the character for "watashi" doesn't look like that.


    And obeygiant just gave you the Japanese pronounciation for it.

    Uh.....I think that's a crab or something.

    And no, that's not the Chinese character for crab. ;)

    It could be something like "believe in yourself" or "trust yourself"?

    I knew there'd be someone who knew here! You all rock! Thank you!

    I'm also ever so glad that I wasn't walking around town with something like "Kitten puncher" or something written on my trouser leg.

    That's the risk you run as a white girl who doesn't know Chinese. :eek: Couldn't pass those up though, the stitching job was too cool.

    Whew!

    ^ Thanks! :) The photo doesn't do the stitching justice but someone did really nice work there.

    I find it sad that it's on the ass of the pants.

    You don't get to enjoy it while wearing. :confused:

    Nothing on the front, at all??

    If it's anything like the recent fashion trend here in the states, it probably says "juicy" or "cheerleader".

    They only work on 18-year-olds. Then they are cute.

    After that, whoa boy. :eek:

    Nope. The front is fancy stitching-free. It's cool, I know it's there even if I can't see it without a mirror. I'm used to being enjoyed from behind anyway.
