tattoo translation

Gary,

I stumbled across your website and saw that you can translate tattoos. I got one a few years ago, and have always wondered if it really means what I was told it did. So I’m hoping you can help shed the light on the situation.

Thanks

High-Res Images?

I just received my meihua scroll and I love it! It's so much nicer than even the "high-res" image on your web site. You have probably heard this a million times, but it would be nice if you had better photos which showed more detail.

I can't seem to find opposites for Balance or Eternity.

I started painting and was wanting to circle them around the Yin and Yang.
I think I have everything right.
