Glyph of the word 'toko'.


  • (v.) to be strong
  • (adj.) strong
  • (n.) strength
  • (nm.) a boy or girl’s given name

A pataki! A pataki toko!
“A boy! A strong boy!”

Notes: Ha, ha…

This iku is a modified version of tou, which is an ikunoala meaning something like “power”, but also used like the English word “can” (the auxiliary). I was quite taken with the look of tou, even though it’s an ikunoala, and this one is a kind of embellished tou. I think it’d make a good tattoo (though I wouldn’t get a tattoo myself).
