Hello. I have a bunch of questions on Chinese slang, But I'd like to start out with these:
What are "tough guys" called in Chinese slang besides "Ying han" and "cu ren"?

What is Chinese slang for a guy prone to fighting?

In American slang, a "tough guy" is called a "rock". Does "rock" have the same figurative use in Chinese?

Chinese slang terms
I was told "bao tuo", "Ying han" and "Cu ren" are slang.

I"ve seen tattoos of Chinese symbols. Is "Wushi" considered slang?

'wushi' is not slang.
In fact 'ying han' is not slang either.
someone is called 'ying han' means he is strong.
and others are very difficult to let him submit
