    The Japanese symbols are just words, you don't need them.

    You should stop talking about your dreams, and start making them.

    There is something so human in the desire to never give up, while at the same time, never giving it your all?

    1. Yeah, they are just words. Like 'POW' or 'BANG' in stuff like Batman.
    2. That depends. Inking work can be done digitally now, so you could probably get away with no ink at all. But I find that plain ordinary Indian Ink is usually a safe enough bet.
    3. Look at the sites posted.
