Are you talking about storing it in a DB and then retrieving it or just displaying it straight from php/html source?

Your DB profile:

charset: utf8mb4, collation: utf8mb4_unicode_ci

Your page setup:

header("Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8");

Put this close to the top of your page so that it is run before any read/write of php/mysql.

<meta charset="utf-8">

Can still be used in the <head> area.

I think that will work. You haven't included any code, so we can't comment on where you're going wrong. Help us to help you.
