Five Rings by nitebytes Five Rings by nitebytes
For my first tattoo I wanted something original, and unique.
Having read Myamoto Musashi's 'A Book of Five Rings' several times, and found more in it each time, and played a pen and paper RPG inspired by the book, 'Legend of the Five Rings' quite a lot, it seemed logical to go for one inspired by the concept of the Five Rings.

The five rings logo is copyright Alderac Entertainment Group.

I can read the fire, water and wind, but what are the other two Kanji? Very cool by the way.

Ground / Earth and Void.
Its drawn from Musashi's 'A Book of Five Rings' (for the Kanji) and Alderac ENtertainment Group's "Legend of the Five Rings" tabletop Roleplaying game, for the interlocking rings (the game was also inspired by Musashi's book).

No worries.
I would have done it sooner, but I've only just got my internet back after moving house, and it'd be rude to have left it unanswered completely.
