using the chinese character 水（water）as tattoo actually has some meaning . because we think people need 5 elements to have good luck, namely 水(water), 金（gold）,木（wood）, 火（fire）, 土（earth）. some people is born with all those elements(for some strange reason), while some others lack some of them. So we use those characters representing those elements as name very often . So as a chinese, i don't feel weird seeing someone have such tattoo, on the contrary, it's kinda cool.
