    Default Two kanji symbols..please help me

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone could help me with these 2 kanji:



    I'm interested what it means put together (if it means something at all). I know the first symbol is "shi" (i took it out of tenshi which means angel - but what it means standing by itself?) and the second symbol is "umi" which means ocean/sea. But what I don't know is what those 2 kanji mean together..please write me all the possible meanings, I'd be really grateful. Thank you

    P.S. i like the symbols and i'd like to tattoo them so please,please help with the meaning of both together

    yes, "shi" is also death, but not this symbol. the death symbol is:

    The first one is 使 (use), and the second one is 海 (sea). I'm not sure if they can be grouped together, though.

    Anyway, here are their definitions in Denshi Jisho:

    http://www.jisho.org/kanji/details/%E4%BD%BF
    http://www.jisho.org/kanji/details/%E6%B5%B7

    These pages include complete information about the Kanji, including their meaning, reading, radicals, etc.

    I second that... I don't think they can be grouped together as compounds in Japanese.
    I'm pretty sure it's possible in Chinese though, but they'd have to be grouped together with a couple of other kanji. At least that's what I think...
    In chinese they'd be pronounced shǐ​ and hǎi​ by the way, just in case you were interested .

    thanks I like both symbols so much and it's too bad they're meaningless together =/

    Well, true. Actually, I did some Google search yesterday, and I found those two Kanji in the compound 手使海, which is pronounced teshikai* in Japanese. That appears to be a name of a company or something, but I don't really know what it means.

    *like loveyourfate said, 使 was originally hǎi​ in Chinese, but that reading became kai when the Japanese imported Kanji from China. This kind of change in reading is common, in fact. For example, in the word "Kanji" itself, Kan was originally Han.
