Tattoo Ideas: Quotes on Life

After writing over two dozen hubs on tattoo ideas that showcased pictures as the majority of the content, I started noticing that a large portion of the comments were from people asking for ideas on what to say, not so much on how to say it. Like Lindsay, for example, who commented on the hub Tattoo Ideas: Words & Phrases, said: "I want some sort of latin script with a phrase having to do with karma." Or Jesso, who said: "I have a colourful fish on my left lower back, but next I want a script.. .. just what I don't know... something positive to remind me every day is mine, I am in control of my destiny."

The tricky thing about quote tattoos is that nine times out of ten, they can't be too long. Unless you have a huge expanse of skin that you plan on dedicating to the tat, like a forearm or your entire back, you're going to need to pick a quote that's short enough to fit in a small area. A few years ago, my girlfriend wanted to get something I had written tattooed on her in my handwriting. The quote she wanted was twenty-one words long, and she wanted it somewhere on her inner forearms. As she is already fairly heavily tattooed, she did not have the criteria of getting it on a place that could be easily hidden if need be. She's lucky. She ended up getting it running lengthwise down her arm next to the word GIRL that was already there. Most people don't have the same flexibility as her. Maybe your job is too professional for tattoos and piercings, or you don't want your mother to see it. If that's the case, then a quote tattoo can be challenging to find space for. And if you think you're going to fit an entire poem (unless it's a haiku) on your wrist by shrinking down the letters to a size 5 font, you're mistaken. Good tattoo artists will only let you make the lettering so small, because they know that tattoos blend, fade, and bleed over time. The smaller the font, the better the chance that you'll be left with a meaningless blob ten years down the road. So although there are millions of wonderful quotes about the beauty of love, I've tried to only assemble the ones that are on the shorter side, while still being meaningful.

I went back through all 2,000+ comments on my previous hubs and tried to identify the most common themes people requested when asking for help with quote ideas. In addition to being a voracious reader, I've been compiling quotes in notebooks and journals since I was thirteen. This article is second in a series broken down by category that started with Tattoo Ideas: Quotes on Strength, Adversity, Courage. Please, if you have any ideas or would like to share a favorite quote of yours, feel free to comment! The examples I've chosen for this particular article may not resonate with everyone. You might read it and get nothing out of it. But my hope is that something will resonate with someone, somewhere, and the words written here will inspire you to take a step you may not have taken otherwise.

Quotes—Love of Life and Living

  • I was throbbing; it shook the bed. I was more alive than I could bear.
  • Live to the point of tears.
  • We do not remember the days, we remember the moments. -Pavese
  • I beg you...to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Do not search for the answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. -Rilke
  • Nothing is worth more than this day. -Goethe
  • The journey is the reward. -Tao saying
  • Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground. -Rumi
  • Before I almost used to think there was something wrong. Everybody else seemed to have the brakes on. A scene in a movie, a voice, a phrase was not for them volcanic. I never feel the brakes. I overflow." -Anais Nin
  • Love the life you live, don't live the life you love. -Chicago
  • La vita e bella; la vita e amore. (Life is beautiful; life is love.) -Life is Beautiful
  • Living well is the best revenge.
  • Just remember, the sweet is never as sweet without the sour. And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet. -Vanilla Sky
  • Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around. -Vanilla Sky
  • He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. -Friedrich Nietzsche
  • He who has nothing to die for has nothing to live for. -Moroccan Proverb
  • Unbeing dead isn't being alive. -e.e. cummings

        hey guys so i wanna get my first tattoo and i have a few ideas, but was hoping to get some more second opnions on them. What do you think of any of these:

        "your heart is free, have the courage to follow it"

        "losing your hearts desire is tragic, but gaining your hearts desire is all you can hope for"

        "dare to live"

        "live a little, love a lot"

        "live for love"

        "love conquers all"

        "keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart"

        or i was thinking an infinity sign with the word love incorporated in it

        any other suggestions please feel free! thanks! :)

        I would love a few of these (when I'm older!)

        'If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it' - Charlie and the Chocolate factory song; don't particularly like the story but love that quote.

        'All you have to decide is what to do with the time that's given to you' - Lord of the Rings - fave movie.

        For all the writers out there - 'The only reason for being a professional writer is that you just can't help it'

        'WWAD' = What would Atticus do? (from To Kill a Mockingbird)I adore that man!

        For all the procrastinators out there, to give you some inspiration - 'The path to hell is paved with works in progress'

        'If you can't learn how to do something, learn to enjoy doing it badly'

        'Aim for the moon, because even if you miss you'll land amongst the stars'

        I'm thinking of getting 3 or 4 of these; one on the back of my shoulder, one along the side of my little finger and maybe one on my foot, I can't wait!

        In my opinion getting a meanfull tattoo it´s a very personal choice.

        If you ask someone for an idea it will never be your own thought…

        Try to understand what you feel about it - your pain, your lost, your love, your family, your feeling about life - and try to put it on your own words. For a tattoo better to be a short quote and with a easy meaning (for yourself and/or for the others…)

        Assume your language if you like it, or assume another language if it means something to you. But never, never, write anything in a language that you don’t understand please! (because all dam motifs!)…

        And if you can’t write something ‘beautiful’ (not all of us have skills to write) try to find an author that mean something to you (a singer, a poet, a politic, a philosopher, a prophet...)

        And try to make your tattoo unique, just like you! Unique… ;)

        (I hope it helps. Sorry for my mistakes… that’s not my language, and google translator sucks anyway…) Peace, love and good luck for all of you, Bob and Suck-dicks too! Cheers* keep smiling! :)

        I'm young but ive seen people die too early. When i turn 18 i was thinking id get the words "we have now" somewhere. maybe my wrist where i see it everyday or maybe somewhere that is more personal. i havent seen anybody with the words "we have now" because its not an actual quote. its something i thought of. not in a sexual way, but as in, you have the moment, you might not get another, this could be your last day make it worth it, that kind of sense.

        I am looking to put a tattoo on the bottom of my foot, painful, but that is my only option, seeing how I model. I danced for 16 years of my life, and it was my passion until I was recently injured, so I am hoping to one day get a dance quote tattooed on my foot.

        "we are fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance"

        "dancing with the feet is one thing, dancing with the heart is another"

        "to dance is to be out of yourself: larger, more beautiful, more powerful"

        Any ideas, or if you like any of these, that would be so helpful to hear!

        In memory of my grandma, I got "I never walk alone" on my foot. As for other tattoo ideas I suggest:

        "We avoid risks in life, so we can make it safely to death.”

        "Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.”

        “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank god that such men lived.”

        "It is a risk to love. What if it doesn’t work out? Ah, but what if it does.”

        "The time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted."

        "She flies on her own wings."

        "There comes a time in a man’s life when to get where he has to go – if there are no doors or windows - he walks through a wall.”

        "I may be lying in the gutter, but I'm staring at the stars."

        Hope these help!

        Suggestions Please! I want something like 'everyone dies but not everyone lives' but worded in a more positive way, like carpe diem, or 'live life' ... but that's not quite it! Might get it written in arabic or sanskript..., along with the word 'strength'. My other idea is a slightly gothic butterfly with a treble clef drawn into it to either go on the hip or on the foot with the quote written along the foot... ???! Will be little tats on feet or hips.

        "Zivot je dobar" - Life is good (in Serbian)

        "Sutra je novi dan" - Tomorrow is a new day (in Serbian

        But if you want it to be credible,Serbs use the Cyrillic alphabet

        "????? ?? ?????" -Life is good

        "????? ?? ???? ???" -Tomorrow is a new day

        If u decide to put some text on your body its stupidly to use google translate.At last ASK someone or regret all your life for what u have done.

        I really like "Don't tell me the sky is the limit, when there'e foot prints on the moon." I don't know where to get it though? and I would have to get it somewhere that my crazy mom couldn't see it. I'm only 15 and my mom is completely against tattoos. I don't wanna wait till I'm 18 though.. I'll find a way:)

        Hi, im 18 years old and i was born with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a serious heart condition that means i could die at any moment. My boyfriend just proposed, and i want to get something that will show him that no matter what happens, he'll always be the one. I was thinking something like: "If i die tonight before i wake, no that you touched my life in so many ways."

        Is that too corny ? I really need something good. Help please !

        For those you would like a long Quote, to go on a ribcage I have this. . .

        "Facilis descensus Averno; Noctes atque dies patet atri ianua Ditis; Sed revocare gradum superasque evadere ad auras, Hoc opus, his labor est."-Virgil, The Aeneid.

        Translation.

        "Easy the descent to hell, Night and Day stand wide the gates of the domain of Dis, But to retarce one's steps and escape to open air, That is the task. This is the labor."

        Also,

        "Before me things created were none, save things Eternal, and Entrnal I endure. All hope abandon, ye who enter here."-Dante, Inferno

        These are some deep and meaning full quotes, if you understand them. So I suggest you do your homework if you decide to use them. Good luck.

        Our Scars Remind Us

        Our Past Is Real

        to me it means that our scars, whether physical or even our memories, are proof that our past has made us who we are. its a reminder to not look at your scars as a negative but more of a growing experience. what does everyone think? would mean alot to get some feedback!

        I really want this tatto that cover most of my back but I want to wait a few more years before I get (seeing as though im only 16)

        But I would really like to get a set of angel wings with the words "To the lost souls;past, present and future"

        with R.I.P underneath.

        It represents all the people I have lost in life, will lose in life and all the lost souls who need an angel to guid them.

        and on my right shoulder I would like to have the dates of my beloved deceased.

        I mis you all xx

        Ok so I'm 21 and already have a celtic cross on the back of my neck and my mother passed away last year right after my birthday and I've been thinking the whole year about what tattoo to get for her. I'm wondering if I should get it on my ribs or the top of my shoulder. I may get either a star gazer or one of the following quotes...

        "to live in hearts we leave behind is not to die"

        or

        "everything I am or ever hope to be I owe to my angel mother"

        Also I'm having wherever I get it done put some of her ashes in the ink so she's always with me. Any ideas about where to get a tattoo since I'd need it concealable for work that also is a good idea feel free to email me. Or if their are any really good quotes about a mother my email is julesoftball@aol.com
