Hey I'm working some art and I wanted to know if this...is the Japanese symbol for dragon. Cause when I ever go to a LP concert I want to give it to Mike and I looked on google and it keeps showing different ones and I don't know which is the right one....so if anyone can help me I'd appreciate it. :)

I suggest putting this post directly on the board in a group of Japanese fans of the LP (of course, coincides on this website). There surely you will find people who know the meaning of this symbol.

Here the group nationwide there is little chance of finding someone who knows Japanese and even worse you can find someone who is badly informed.

sure is :) that's the symbol
tht the symbol
that's also the Kanji for Dragon, but this one is used quite often for "dragon"
龍, so I think it doesn't matter, which one you chose ;)
that is the symbol.
Just choose the coolest one man no worries

I'm a Japanese girl. Magi is right. Both 竜 and 龍 are the Japanese symbols for dragon. But when I explain about the difference between above two symbols, 竜 is more like an European dragon, an evil creature, meanwhile 龍 is more like a chinese dragon, lucky and precious god.

龍 is popular in use of personal name and place name in Japan because it has an air of dignity. 竜 is likely to be used for creature noun, for example, 恐竜 = dinosaur.

In addition, the "dragon" of Bruce Lee's "Enter The Dragon" came from "龍". I think "Dragon Ball" ,too.

It was a good study for me, thanks! (^^) /

This thing looks creepy. :@

iI dont know realy, but i do know it looks pretty tight!!! I would give it 2 him if thats what you realy want 2 do, im sure he will love it, it does look awsome nomatter what it means :D

 

Google has three different options because written Japanese comes in a few different forms: Hiragana, Katakana, Kana, Kanji :) So all the options are correct - I like the one you chose cos it looks most like a dragon :)

Hey thank you guys so much! :D I love Japanese and I want to learn it someday. :)
