Japanese symbol for storm. Attention tough guys, it’s for you. Girls, you better not have it for tattoo. It’s a symbol of tough guys!
The symbol has two parts. The upper crown means mountain, the lower wind. Putting altogether, it indicates the wind blowing down mountains, which “storm” used to mean in ancient Japan.
Even though the symbol itself is well known, it is rarely used in daily life, as they do not frequently come across storms in Japan (We come across typhoons.)
Who to get this symbol for tattoo
The symbol is definitely for men as it looks a little bit rough. It reminds Japanese people of “tough guys.” If you are a tough guy, get it for tattoo.
