so I was thinking for a while now to take a tattoo on my wrist. u would love to have one saying: "Live your life" or "love your life" or "be yourself" in kanji. I asked on the Japanese stackexchange and I got sent here. (not more then 2 signs if possible).

  • LINE dict. live your life 过好你的生活, just live your life 好好过你的生活,(fervently) love your life 热爱自己的生命 be yourself 做自己, – user6065 May 13 at 1:14

自爱 (love; respect oneself)

爱生命 (love life)

我是我 (I am myself)

  • How would you feel about "随缘" for this tattoo context? I feel like the three OP suggestions are variations on a kind of 顺其自然 philosophy, 随缘 might be a 2-character way of expressing that? Interested to see your thoughts. – steveLangsford May 21 at 18:49

live your life: 好好生活 love your life: 热爱生活 be yourself: 做自己

  • I think the reason this post is down voted is because 'life' in 'live your life' is '人生' not '生活' ; 'live your life' should be '活你的人生' – Tang Ho May 14 at 1:26
