Now ive been looking online and im trying to find the word Red in kanji but in a calligraphy for a tattoo. One site showed a different looking symbol for red but says thats what it means in chinese.

Here it is - http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=htt ... BA&dur=870 ... BA&dur=870


Then I check on this website and its a different looking symbol too. I dont know which is wrong or right. I just want a kanji that means Red. Thats it.

You know how we have different words for versions of red, such as crimson, burgundy, scarlet, etc?
Well, the same in Chinese and Japanese.

Here's a bunch of reds:

This includes the one you were looking for, and dozens of others (some only vaguely-related to the color red).
