there is no way to write Ian in chinese characters. if someone says they can, they are lying. chinese characters are more like word symbols. they are not letters like we use in english.

my husband is Chinese and does custom tattoo lettering for our shop, he says it can be translated into a ideogram as they have the name ying in Chinese,(pronounced Ian) but ads that alot of English names have no Chinese translation.

i think that you can write in chinese because if someone teaches you the symbols then it shouldn't be that hard to learn it because i'mdoing a project on it and i'mlearning china writing and culture and language and more.

I dont think you should get chinese characters on your body unless you speak the language, duh.  Otherwise, what's the point?

No, you cannot "spell" English words in Chinese. You can find Chinese characters that, when put together and pronounced in sequence, SOUNDS SIMILAR to the English word (that is how they translate English names into Chinese on newspaper and what-not), but this is just a TRANSLATION at best, just like how Chinese names in English are translations that SOUND similar. Different persons will translate them different ways, and some are certainly better than others. For example, the About site mentioned above translates my name (Alex) to a Chinese "name" that is pronounced (in Mandarin) ya-li-ke-si, hardly true to the original.
