One point to consider that the page I linked to doesn't elaborate on is that, by making a Japanese tattoo, you're appropriating a culture to make something that the culture in question generally finds offensive. The Japanese public hates tattoos. In Japan, "tattoo" is equated with "bad person". You know how in America (and probably many other countries), the image of a "rebel" who doesn't quite abide by the rules is often revered? In Japan, not so much.
(I have no idea how to translate it, by the way, but that Google translation has at least two mistakes.)
