MaBad Posted August 22, 2016 Share Posted August 22, 2016 Hi all, So I'm looking for getting my first one or two tattoos and I'm hoping to get some creative suggestions. I know that words that I want tattooed but I'm not sure about images or if I even WANT images. I'm hoping I can get some creative input to help me decide. The first tattoo I want to is "Mundus vult decipi ergo decipiatur" which is Latin and translates to "The world wants to be deceived, therefore let it be deceived" For me, this is 'irony' and a reminder to always see the world as it is and myself as I am, not as I want these things to be. Too often I feel people either view the world/themselves in an ideal state or bury their heads in the sand from the truth. So it's more of a reminder to not fall into this trap. This the first tattoo I will get. The second tattoo I want to get is a quote from the short film World of Tomorrow: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_of_Tomorrow_(film). The quote is "Now is the envy of all the dead." To me, this is mostly about living for today and seizing opportunity. It's like a less cliche 'Carpe Diem' to me. So I'm wondering if anyone can think of any visuals to go along with these ideas. The thought of putting ink on my skin is an immensely personal experience and I wouldn't get these two phrases if they didn't mean something to me. Therefore, I won't get any thing else to accompany them unless they also speak to me but I'm very curious to see what kinds of suggestions I can get from this community. Thank you in advance for reading this post and for your input. Also, I should say, as this might matter, that I am thinking about getting these tattooed on my neck and forehead. I'm just kidding, I am thinking about my upper arms and either inner or outer arms. I work in a business casual environment and wear dress shirts with sleeves rolled up so I want to keep them outside exposed areas. Thank you!
