Ideas for a nice tattoo in the pelvic region?

On December 27, 2012, in Chinese Art, by admin

I want a tattoo but I want it to be concealed so I was thinking of putting it by the left side of my pelvic bone. What would be a nice tattoo to get in that area? I don’t want something too big. And I don’t really want to have japanese or chinese calligraphy. As much as possible, I just want it to be black. No color.

Pictures would be great. :)

Decide on the tattoo you want before you go to the parlor. This is something that you will carry with you for the rest of your life and can not easily be erased.

Go to a website like where they have thousands of designs on cd rom. I really thought that I knew what I wanted until the cd arrived.

I ended up choosing a different design instead of the original one that I was going to get. I am much happier with the art from the art of tattoo website.


How would you reword this sentence?

Japan played a key role in the development of new schools of Chinese painting.

The country of Japan? I think you probably mean Japanese artists rather than Japan.
Otherwise it’s fine.

sorry i tried all kinda combinations i could not find anything about the Art or the artist sorry i will keep looking


My brother and his girlfriend (who I think is a sweetie) are expecting a baby in January. Me and my sister are throwing both of them a baby shower later in November, and I would like some ideas for a nice gift for them and baby. They just got their own place and they’re all excited. They are having a boy. My brother will be at the shower, and they have a dragon theme for the nursery, but I cant find any dragon gifts online or in stores. Any ideas?

A young tree to plant in the baby’s honor at your brother’s and girlfriend’s new home. Japanese maple or jade tree for honor.


Sounds interesting. Is it anything to do with my wind chimes?
behave Dave!

In ancient times as well as today, Feng Shui, (風水) pronounced in English as [fʊŋ’ʃweɪ] ("fung shway"), was known as "Kan-Yu" which means ‘The Law of Heaven and Earth.’ [1] Today’s Feng Shui schools teach that it is the ancient Chinese practice of placement and arrangement of space to achieve harmony with the environment. Feng shui literally translates as "wind-water." This is a cultural shorthand taken from the following passage of the Zhangshu (Book of Burial) by Guo Pu of the Jin Dynasty:[2]

The qi that rides the wind stops at the boundary of water.[3]

Feng shui is a discipline with guidelines that are compatible with many techniques of agricultural planning as well as internal furniture arrangements. Space, weather, astronomy, and geomagnetism are basic components of feng shui. Proponents claim that feng shui has an effect on health, wealth, and personal relationships; critics consider it a pseudoscience.

[edit] Introduction
Early feng shui relied on astronomy to find correlations between humans and the universe [4] and it is inseparable from an understanding of political power in premodern China.[5]

Chinese often used the celestial poles determined by the pole stars to determine the north-south axis of settlements. This technique explains why Shang palaces at Xiaotun lie 10° east of due north. In some cases, as Paul Wheatley observed[6], they bisected the angle between the directions of the rising and setting sun to find north. This technique provided the more precise alignments of the Shang walls at Yanshi and Zhengzhou.

Currently Early Yanshao and Hongshan cultures provide the earliest evidence for feng shui. Professor David Pankenier and his associates reviewed astronomical data for the time of the Banpo dwellings (4000 BCE) to show that the asterism Yingshi (Lay out the Hall, in the Warring States period and early Han era) corresponded to the sun’s location at this time. Centuries before, the asterism Yingshi was known as Ding. It was used to indicate the appropriate time to build a capital city, according to the Shijing. Apparently an astronomical alignment ensured that Banpo village homes were sited for solar gain.[7]

The grave at Puyang (radiocarbon dated 5,000 BP) that contains mosaics of the Dragon and Tiger constellations and Beidou (Dipper) is similarly oriented along a north-south axis.[8] The presence of both round and square shapes in the Puyang tomb, and at Hongshan culture ceremonial centers, suggests that the gaitian cosmography (heaven-round, earth-square) was present in Chinese society long before it appeared in the Zhou Bu Suan Jing.[9]

Cosmography that bears a striking resemblance to modern feng shui compasses (and computations) were found on a jade unearthed at Hanshan (c. 3000 BCE). The design is linked by Li Xueqin to the liuren astrolabe, zhinan zhen, and Luopan. [10]

All capital cities of China followed rules of Feng Shui for their design and layout. These rules were codified during the Zhou era in the "Kaogong ji" (Manual of Crafts). Rules for builders were codified in the "Lu ban jing" (Carpenter’s Manual). Graves and tombs also followed rules of Feng Shui. From the earliest records, it seems that the rules for the structures of the graves and dwellings were the same.

[edit] Instrumentation

[edit] History

A feng shui spiral at LA Chinatown’s Metro station.Emperor Di Ku was said to dabble in astronomy. Shun consulted the stars before he assumed the throne. There were feng shui devices before the invention of the magnetic compass, which occurred comparatively late in the long history of feng shui. According to the Zhouli the original device may have been a gnomon, although Yao, Huangdi, and other figures were said to possess devices such as the south-pointing chariot.

As Derek Walters observed[11], "The luopan was originally a scientific instrument, used for astronomical observation." The oldest excavated examples of instruments used for feng shui are liuren astrolabes. These consist of a lacquered, two-sided board with astronomical sightlines. Liuren astrolabes have been unearthed from tombs that date between 278 BC and 209 BC. The markings are virtually unchanged from the astrolabe to the first magnetic compasses.[12]

Since the invention of the magnetic compass for use in Feng Shui[13], some feng shui disciplines require the use of a compass. This compass could be a Luopan (Chinese Feng Shui compass of the types San Yuan, San He, and Zong He) or one of the earlier versions such as a south-pointing spoon (zhinan zhen).

The history of the Luopan compass takes us back to the Zhou dynasty (770-476 BCE), when emperor Shing combined the knowledge of the compass with that of the I-ching. The compass consists of a magnetic needle that point towards magnetic north not true north. The foundation of the I-ching is in the trigrams.

The trigrams are the set of three broken and/or solid lines that you typically find around a Chinese mirror.

In Traditional Compass techniques these trigrams determine the divination of fortune. The traditional Luopan has 36 rings of information. These trigrams occupy the first circle of the luopan. How these rings line up with the compass and the combination of the reading of these rings determines your fortune.

Have you considered sending an email to Martha’s Website?


I was wondering what the Yin Yang symbol has to do with Chinese martial arts.
Thanks guys (:

its philosophical symbol meaning that there good in all evil and evil in all good. remember the little bit of black on the white side and the little bit of white on the black side?
I guess the symbol doesn’t have anything to with actually learning a specific combat form, but the martial arts schools in china are all about teaching morals to the students.


i live with my sister and i am trying to keep the house organised and tidy. My sister thinks her yoga mat should be stored in the living room behind a chair. this freaks me out. I think it should be stored in her room because otherwise the living room will collect more clutter. My sister’s argument is that she does yoga in the livingroom therefore the mat should be in that room.
please what does everyone else think?

Well by all rights one would assume it should be stored in her room. But in truth her PoV (point of view) is solid. Store things in the same room as you use them. Making it more accessible.

It really comes down to this, It’s all a matter of perspective and you’ll find that PoV’s will vary acrose the board if enough people are asked or respond.

Take a min and asked yourself. Is there something that’s bothering me. Am I angry with my flatmate. Has she offended me or hurt my feelings. In doing this it’ll let you know if you’re being Jaded. Remember it’ll only work if you’re being honest.

We all have a tendency to let something bother us to have an excuse to be angry or irritated by someone else. Often because what’s really bothering us isn’t a legitimate cause and we know it.

If it turns out it’s a realistic irritation not brought on by something else weigh out the options. Is it worth an argument to convince her into moving it into her room? Is it something that you can live with? etc…

Other possible solution is play a game of cards, rock/scissor/paper. Winner gets their way. Just make sure to set the terms first.
