Chinese tattoos took the Hollywood by storm.
Hollywood stars and celebrities started this craze years ago, using Chinese calligraphy characters as tattoos, perhaps attracted by the mystical eastern culture aesthetics.
Some of the Chinese tattoos were quite impressive like the one worn by the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham. He showed his vertical tattoo down his left side in Chinese symbols when visiting China.
The tattoo is a famous ancient quote in Chinese meaning “Life and death are determined by destiny. Riches and fame are ordered by Heaven.” So full of wisdom in this quote and in Chinese culture!
However, some people clearly did not do research before applying Chinese characters as tattoo designs. Justin Bieber’s tattoo in the image below means “cowardice”. Chinese fans suspected that some people may have tricked him by telling him that the upper half of that character means “to follow” and the other half below means “your heart”. That is what they mean respectively, but when combined together, it’s a totally different meaning.
Arrow star had a tattoo meaning ” mouse, ginger, Yao( a Chinese surname), and pig.” It is so confusing to the Chinese audience. But maybe people who chose these characters don’t care that much. Anything unique and mystical brings charm at least in their own eyes.
Now there are AI technologies available for tattoo artists and tattoo enthusiasts to customize their own Chinese tattoos based on their English handwriting. Isn’t that cool and magical? Check this out.
How to Use AI to Create Unique Chinese Tattoos?
AI experts from the tech company PicUP.Ai started to explore using deep learning technologies to learn how everyone writes and mimics their calligraphy styles. After learning from someone for a while using some photos, their algorithm can create new character writings which resemble your writing styles, even when you write in a different language.
I have asked three people to write down some random English words for the AI to learn from. Well, the more writing input the better, but we just used only several characters to show you the idea.
Tony’s English writing

You will notice that the output style is similar to the input style, i.e. mimicking the calligraphy style of the writer. When the input is slim is simple, so is the output. Both output and input show similar characteristics such as boldness, level of dramatic artistic variations, complexicity, etc.
