Tattoo Ideas: Words & Phrases II

Updated on May 24, 2011

Written by: Jaclyn Popola

To me there is nothing more beautiful than the written word personified, inked permanently onto one's skin as a necessary wound that is not meant to heal. Images are lovely as well, a properly done tattoo can evoke feelings of remembrance and inspiration. But there is something about tattoos of words, quotes, verses, lyrics and phrases that captivates me time and time again. And there is something unique about the individuals who decide to ink such words onto their skin, something noble in believing in a sentence so strongly that you are compelled to emblazon it across your chest. Presently on my back I have two sets of words: "i only want now" on the lower portion and "wake your dreams" at the nape of my neck. I have this idea that I will cover the entire expanse of skin from shoulders to hip bones with a collage of words; different fonts, different sizes, different meanings. I have read so many books and identified with so many quotes, I don't know how I'll pick just a few but I am compelled to immortalize great works on my mortal frame. I think it was the ancient Buddhist monks who practiced the art of tattooing, and believed it was necessary to have a scar in this life that would be carried with you, and would prepare you, for the next. It was called a "beautiful wound."

It is very popular these days to get tattoos written in a language that is not your native tongue. Be very careful in these situations that the words you are getting translate correctly into the meaning you chose. Start out with an online translator like babelfish.altavista.com. Once the site produces the translation, double check it's validity with a reputable source. A family member who speaks the language, a regional chat room, or a professor who teaches the language in question are all possibilities. To be safe, make sure that at least two separate sources confirm the accuracy of the translation before going ahead and getting it tattooed. I have a Polish quote that wraps around my upper arm, and one time I was at the Wendy's drive-thru and the cashier was a Polish girl who noticed my tattoo and leaned in closer to read it. I was terrified as she read it aloud, wondering, "Oh my God, what if it's wrong? What if it doesn't mean what I wanted it to mean?!" Luckily, my translation was correct, and she understood it's meaning. But imagine how embarrassing it would be if you got a tattoo and then years later a stranger is the one to inform you that the meaning marked permanently into your skin actually makes no sense at all.

      For the most part yes. However, and this is not a rule or law just a respect thing, if you have a otttao artist spend the time and effort on drawing a piece for you, usually you should get that otttao from that artist. It's sort of like an unwritten law kinda thing. Unless you completely hate the design and work in which case I would wonder why you went to that artist in the first place. Anyways, the point is NO they should not charge you to draw it but if you get the otttao they should do it.

      More precisely, looks like a fixed gear tatoo, dteipse being labeled a single speed tattoo. Nitpicky, I know. Still, if you have problems getting that gear on correctly, this tat'll fix that problem, eh?

      hi i have an idea for a tattoo but no clue where to put it and i'm in the airforce so it can't be shown to much. the tattoo saying is I've seen better days, So says the mirror,It could be much worse, But the call is close Tomorrow's my reason for today to let go,If I can get through this I can get through that If you cut me wide open I can cut you some slack If you come when I'm leaving I might never be back I know it's not easy Just a matter of fact.

      any ideas on placements would be helpful

      Hi Everyone,

      I am getting a tattoo soon of a dandelion with the pollen floating away in the wind. I want to get some words to go between the pollen but struggling to find anything I like. Dandelions stand for survival, they illustrate the journey of letting the past go and starting something new.

      Anyone got any ideas of inspirational sayings that fit this description, I will be eternally grateful :)

      I am still confused and undecided on what tattoo I should write, I want one that is a short sentence, thinking about tattooing it under my chest. I want it to be something about my mother, but however don't want to give the satisfaction to all the people who see it at the beach to know who I am talking about. I want it to be for myself and just to show how much I respect my mother, and to show her my love, and thank her for always being there in my life. I was thinking about quoting ' Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you ' .. but still don't know. any ideas? thanks in advance!!

      hey i have a few tattoos, in my opinion the top of my back was the sorest. i got quite a large script there and it did hurt. i also have one starting from my ribs which extends down and around my thigh, yes it was sore but bearable id do it again. wrist is not sore but does sting, bottom of back was not sore, neither was neck or my ear. i think it depends on persons thresholds though, they're defently worth it if its what you want.

      I have a tattoo on the outside edge of my left foot that says "While I breathe, I hope." In Latin its "Dum spiro, spero." I also want another one that says, "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun." I'm not sure where yet, but I just love the feeling that both of these statements give me. I hope that these quotes may give others as much hope and happiness as they give me.

      I have a lot of scars on my arms and ribs. And I'm ready to cover that part of my life up. And I want to get a tattoo that will remind me that I can keep going. I was kinda thinking of something like a pair of dramatic eyes (the Pair on the left) With a quote. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=Watercolor+eyes&...//www.polyvore.com/watercolor_eyes/thing%3Fid%3D9350890&docid=8tDfnbMer5cwxM&w=300&h=300&ei=EreUTtmWOYqlsAKZwNXvAQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=575&vpy=295&dur=210&hovh=225&hovw=225&tx=54&ty=246&page=5&tbnh=124&tbnw=122&start=65&ndsp=16&ved=1t:429,r:9,s:65

      This would go on the left side of my ribs. Any tips/ideas would be great! :)

      Hey. Theere is tatto i love so much but the owner is my favorite idol so i don't wanna be a copycat. Here's the picture:

      http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lf9mf4FUUX1qb8ao...

      It says ( in latin ) : cavpe siem,quam minimum cresula postero.

      Eng: “Take a hold of today. And only believe in the word ‘tomorrow’ in the smallest way you can“.

      Can you change the words of tatoo but you won't change the meaning. I know it's hard but it'll mean a world to me. Thank you !

      I love this hub! I have been tryng to figure out what I wanted to do for my side piece for quite awhile now. I happened to stumble across this page today in the midst of looking for different ideas, and it hit me. You had said something about the words "beautiful wound". It was perfect! I had been looking for a storng word to use, and that phrase fit so perfectly with any tattoo. I cant wait to have my piece done now. Hopefully i can send you a picture when it is finally finished, but I just wanted to say thank you so much. I couldn't have asked for anything better!

      I’m looking to get my second tattoo done my first one is '' nosce te ipsum'' know thyself. I would like a slightly longer one for my second I’m into meaningful quotes I have a few ideas which are.

      Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.”

      Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

      One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.”

      Firstly could someone translate these into Latin for me I have tried the online translators but some part of me doesn’t trust them lol.

      Also I would really appreciate more ideas obviously from the above quotes you can sort of see the kind of quotes I’m looking for.

      Thankyou.

      Dear all,

      It is clear that many of you are interested in obtainingnew English to Latin translations for tattoos. Please be aware, as I have said earlier, that almost all of the answers provided on this page are incorrect, often spectacularly so. Unless you have many years' experience in the Latin language, professional advice is strongly desired if you are seeking a tattoo, which is not the sort of bodily decoration that can be changed with ease!

      With this said, I may should add that, for the benefit of those who have visited this page and desire expert help with something as serious and permanent as a Latin tattoo, the online service Classical Turns has introduced its own page to help with the thorny task of translation English into the appropriate Latin (or Ancient Greek) phrase for a tattoo. An expert academic service, including advice about authentic and appropriate fonts and layout, is available. Information about pronunciation can also be given on request. Classical Turns would be happy to help with all the translations offered above: no request in English is too difficult to be rendered into Latin. Just visit http://www.classicalturns.com and click on 'Latin Tattoo Translator' on the left menu.

      CVRATE VT VALEATIS!

      Hi!

      I would like to have my third tattoo, a text tattoo, on Italian. I would like it to be on my ankle or in my arm or something, though that can be later considered.

      First I thought that the text in that tattoo would refer to my boyfriend. I have been with him since 2007, when we were just 15 years old. He is my first love and I'm his.

      Then I realized I could have a text, a phrase that refers to my panic disorder. I have a panic disorder, I have had it all my life and it is always there. I have also suffered from depression a year ago. Those are a big part of my life and I can't get rid of them even if I wanted. I have had to get used to them which is sometimes frustrating for example if the panic attack will strike at night. My boyfriend has also helped me struggling with that. It wouldn't mind me if we broke up and I still had the tattoo which would apply to him. He has changed my life from worse to better and I am forever grateful to him. We have also grown upp together and he has had such an influence to me.

      The disorder, depression and my dear boyfriend has made me that person who I am now and that's why I would like to have something tattooed regarding to them. I would like to have some nice phrase, not a very long but not a single word either. And with an Italian spelling, or Latin, I'm not sure just yet.

      I would be grateful to you if you guys helped me with this. Thanks!

      (ps. Sorry for my typing mistakes, I'm still studying English)

      Hi, I've been thinking of taking a tattoo for like 4 months now, and i found the text i was going to put.

      First i decided to put it on my underarm, starting on the right one (on the side) and halfway switch to the left one (also on the side) so if I put them together they make a sentence,

      The text would be;

      'God Would Not Put Me Through ----

      What He Can't Take Me Through'

      But I'm afraid that people, such as for a job interview will reject me for my tattoo, so i've been doubting a lot, and working with long sleeves in the summer isn't great either.. I hope somebody could give me a solution since it's quite a big text.

      one of my best friends just passed away in a car crash and my mom passed away when she was 33. I wanted to get a tattoo for them, but also one that could have deeper meaning. One idea was an 'L' (both their names started with L and so does mine and my grandma's) but I really love the phrase "It's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.". I'm not sure where to get the tattoo or if I should incorporate a symbol (such as stars) any ideas?
