Red in Kanji. Need some help here(tattoo)

Post by TheCopyNinja » May 7, 2013 5:25 pm

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 - ... 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.
