I’m thinking about getting a tattoo of written words (the first shot reads ‘In time, anything is possible’. Words I truly believe in.
Not decided where yet but I loved the placement of these on a waitresses hand I spoke to last week. I had to take a shot.
I may lift a quote from one of the spiritual books I’ve read. Any wise words you’ve seen and remember?
Talk to me.

    Fr. “Il faut vivre et non pas seulement exister.” – One must live, not just exist.

    A quote from one of my fav books, Black Girl in Paris.

    Maybe not that much wise words but Jim Morrison did wrote some gorgeous lines! If you like him/The Doors, do some online reading on his poems and less known songs!

    Wow, great tattoo! I can’t remember any wise words right now, but those are so true!

    I loove tattoos, and got my first one about eight months ago after weeeks of asking my parents every single day, hahah. My next one (my dad: “next one?? will there be more?”) I’d like to be some words, just need to find a saying or a line from a song that I really like. Quite a project 😛 One I like is “love all trust a few a do wrong to none”. But there are hundreds of tattoos on weheartit.com so take a look there for inspo 😀

    I have 9 tats never and I mean never copy someone else s work or idea. Put your tat somewhere you feel works for you, hands I would not do you have to think later on in life. Finally choose words that touch your soul and you have not read on someone else. Good luck.

    This tatoo is amazing!!!*_*
    i follow ever this blog because i like it!!!*_*
    good weekend darling!!!

    I’m agreeing with Diana. A tatoo is something so personal, it’s a part of you. Take your time and choose it carefully !

    Just remember that ink on fingers doesn’t stick well. It fades very easily, and you have to do it over and over for it to look good. The reason for this is that the skin on your fingers is never left alone…

    Good luck on determing where to put it! Lot’s of luv from the girl with more tats than the average girl. 🙂

    The tattoo on the waitress is amazing! Good luck with yours!(:

    I wish I had the courage to get a tatoo, I would go for Carpe Diem on the inside of my wrist.
    ‘Seize the day’is the translation from latin, it’s beautiful.

    love the quote – i dont think i could get it done on my fingers. what about the inside of your arm – from your elbow to your pit? i also think half way down the shoulder is nice.

    I have a tatto on the inside of my leg that says “Beauty is More Than Skin Deep” with a picture of a tiger lilly (my favorite flower) surrounded by hearts. This is a quote that I live by. Make sure your tattoo is something you will still love 10 years down the line. ; )

    I’m loving her nails! And I love the placement too, that way she can always look down and see them.

    I don’t have a tattoo, but only because I haven’t found a design/quote I’m 150% sure about. But quotes from the book The Alchemist pop into my head every once in a while. Let us know if you get one!

  17. Caroline, No. says:

    I like ‘to thine own self be true’ from Hamlet and thought about getting that for a while on my wrist.

    I just worry the script thing is faddy, everyone’s getting them, in a couple of years we might regret it.

    The waitress’s is badass, I love it. (And her nails!)

    I’m not a fan of tattoos (you are so lovely; why spoil it???) but I do love that manicure and want to know everything about it.

  20. Sarah Dee says:

    I love the placement (and her nails are awesome)

    How about

    Go now, and live

  21. Lioko says:

    I have always wanted to have my fingers tattoed like that. Or at least the ring finger(the inner side next to the middle one) and I would like to write my nickname…it’s my nickname since birth and it will stay like this forever. And it looks good….Lioko…..

    I absolutely adore her tat placement.
    I have no wise words, but I could suggest a few places to put it.
    Maybe going along the bottom of your breast, following the curve. Lol, I sound like a pervert “your breast” lmao. But I have been thinking of getting some words on my left side.

    I think I want a half moon one day on the lower part of my back.
    I friend of my has a tattoo with the word ‘serendipity’ on her hips. That was really nice!
    But I think I wouldn’t get a tattoo on my hands.

    bisous,

    i’ve always loved the Latin phrase:

    omnia vincit amor

    “love conquers all”

    but maybe that’s something more you would engrave inside a wedding ring or something…

    Hi! I was wondering, how can we send clothing or accessories to you? I always read that some fans send you gifts. How can me and my friends send you something we’ve made ourselves =)

    I have a tattoo on my back that reads; “I wanted movement, not a calm course of existence.” It’s the first part of a quote from Leo Tolstoy but I slightly altered it. and I love the waitress’s fingernails! ohh baby!

    Something I always has believed in is:
    “dream it, do it”
    If you dream of something you also can do it. Thats beutiful I think.

  30. Fox Carter says:

    A tattoo is a ritual in itself and the words must be special to you alone…you will instantly know when you find what speaks to you….
