Tattoo Ideas: Quotes on Life

Updated on January 28, 2016

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 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

      The tats are amazing, I love all the quotes on expression. I run a methadone clinic in new york city and most of the clients have tats with similar expressions. It's just a way of feeling good about themselves and optimistic about their future, keep tats coming!!

      Hello! I am only 15 right now, but when my parents let me I wanna get a tattoo quote. I was thinking about the following things:- If life was easy, where would all the adventures be?- Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.- Count on the worst, Hope for the best.- Where words fail, music speaks.- Too fast to live, too young to die.

      I wanted your opinions ;) oh and btw, no matter what it's gonna be, I want it on my back (shoulderblad if possible xp)

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

      If you want something you've never had, do something you've never done."

      Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

      I was in heaven, I was in hell belive in neither, but fear them aswell

      i have bunch of quotes i like but im still debating bt some you guys mmight like maybe, there kind of long as well, but ur choice and ur opinions

      "to train the mind its potential, you must train the body"

      "forge your own destiny, your fate is the only thing you can create with your own hands"

      "live your life so you have nothing to regret,if you care about something protec it no matter how tough, no matter how sad, you gotta keep trying even if you hve to put your life the line, protect it with both arms. never give in"

      "he who dares laugh, holds the world in his hand"

      "pain is inevitable, suffering is optional"

      "man is least himself when he speaks in his own face, give him a mask and he will speak the truth"

      "the insult someone we call them "beastal" for deliborate cruelty and nature "human" might be the greater insult"

      "sometimes i wish i as a clud, just floating along going were ever the breeze takes me, that's my style im just not into putting effort into stuff, who knew life would be so much work, hmph... oh well..."

      and lastly,

      "life is to short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't and believe everything happens for reason, if you get a chance take it, if it changes your life, let it. nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it be worth it"

      "says"....AMEN!!!! : ) that person above you is a complete jack ass!! there is NOTHING funny about suicide!! and i think a quote tattoo is a great way to express your feelings toward that. I think it's ridiculous how many people come on here and start hating on everyone. This is supposed to be a website where you give feedback and try to help people out. Not sit behind your computer screen and make rude remarks and think you're a bunch of badasses when in reality you're probably just some lame ass loser. So my advice....Get a life and stop hating on everyone.

      That strawberry nugget twat probably has the smallest dick on the face of the earth, what a fucking jackass, how dare you think suicide is funny!!!! you wouldn't think it was so hilarious if a friend of yours decided to kill him/herself but then again you probably don't have any friends because nobody would want to be friends with a social reject like yourself.

      you put yourself if that on class of teenage kids who try to make funny jokes so people laugh, and yet others look at you and just think how retarded you are for even trying, but you wouldn't care in that case, because you tried to make yourself stand out, so you can be noticed, you probably tried being the class clown, so people can notice you because you wanted people to see you for you and people can know ur name, and an easy way of pointing that out is the corny names you are using, trying to make a joke, yet no one laughed...unlike you my existance is flawed, to live is the rarest thing in the world, most people just exist that is all, like they say, take all the stupid people out of the world, and there wouldn't be any profit...sheash...ur such a drag...

      just thought i'd add one which has been told to me whenever anything bad has happened or when i was in training for the royal marines, adn it is:

      "Just anouther rich experience of life"

      also... i saw someone added the quote: "giving up does not mean you are weak, only that you are strong enough to let go" i liked it, but it seem like ur admiting you're weak, which i didn't really like, so i used it a bit to make my own which so far ive got:

      "giving up is not always the wrong decision, sometimes you just have to be strong enough to let go"

      if anyone can word it any better can you drop me an email: or if you have any good quote along thoes lines ill be greatful 2 receive them.

      anouther one i like, one what a frined of mine has got which is: "our greatest glory in life is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall"

      fewtrell : That's good but maybe not in such a visible place. It sounds like something that won't be quite as meaningful for you when you are 20 or 30 and you might want to use that space for a different tattoo then. Even changing it to the inside of your arm would be good.

      Ka: Quote "You're born an original, don't die a copy!

      Be true, Be free, Be you!"

      I love it! :)

      And anyone have any tattoo placement advice? I want to get, "The eyes of love see all of us as one" done soon, but I'm completely stuck as to where to get it. The outside of my arms, backs of my shoulders, back of the neck, and parts of my back are taken. I don't want it on my stomach or anywhere that's likely to stretch out and ruin the lettering especially if I'm pregnant and get fat lol. I don't want tiny lettering that will blur. And I kind of want to save the inside of my forearms for tattoos for future partner and kiddies. I was thinking about my legs, but that somehow feels "wrong" for this tattoo. I think it needs to be higher up my body. And advice or ideas?

      - She lives the poetry she cannot write.

      - Yeah I want you but no I don't need you. Without you I'd be miserable at best, but I'd still be alive.

      - It’s not so important happy ever after, just that it’s happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away.

      - At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.

      - don't be afraid to make mistakes, stumble and fall because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from the things that scare you most.

      - life happens to us. the only certainty in all of it is that it just keeps happening.

      - Deep down pain drives us towards tomorrow. We need pain to survive because it feels so good when it stops.

      - I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge,

      that myth is more potent than history. I believe that

      dreams are more powerful than acts, that hope always

      triumphs over experience, that laughter is the only cure

      for grief and I believe that love is stronger than death.

      - It’s wrong that we should be only half alive, half of ourselves.

      - some show their beauty, because they want the world to see it, others hide their beauty, because they want the world to see something else.

      - to wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are.

      - When you say love is a simple chemical reaction, i can't say I agree, because my chemicals left me a beautiful disaster, still loves all I see.

      yeah that's all i got lol.

      hey, im 17 in less then two months and for my 2nd tattoo i'll be getting "it's just a thought..."

      when i was going through a difficult time my psychologist always told me "it's just a thought..." your mind is a very powerful weapon, and your thoughts affect how you feel. If you can change the way you think, you can change the way you feel. What she said really helped me, everytime i thought of something negative i told myself just that and thought of how lucky i am to be alive, to be able to breath, touch, walk, see and feel. In the long run it saved my life.

      I have a few tattoos

      I have seven stars tattooed on the back of my neck- one for each of my siblings.

      My favorite of all of my tattoos though is the one on the very top of my right shoulder it says "VIII • XXXI • LXXXIX" it's my older sister's birthdate in roman numerals. I got it because we are very close and always have been.

      I also have the words "Stand Proud" one my ankles- stand is on the left and proud is on the right both are on the back of my ankle where that tendon with a weird name is.

      I have the word "DREAMER" tattooed on my left pointer finger all in capital letters because it is the one word that describes me and its a reminder to always be that but continue to be that and more. i got it on my finger because it will never "wash away" very metaphorical.

      I have "Sometimes..." across my rib cage even with about the middle of my left bicep and its small enough that my arm covers it.

      I also have a tattoo that Rihanna has because it inspired me so much which is the words "Never A Failure....Always A Lesson..." on my chest but like her's it is backwards so i can read it in the mirror.

      I have read many of these ideas and think they are all great and i say to anyone who is worried about if your idea is "stupid" or "dumb" and what not....Don't be. if you like it and you want to get it- then get it. it' your tattoo and ultimately your body. do what YOU think is awesome. :)

      to the young ones getting all these "inspirational" tattoos;

      to me a tattoo is a form of art that expresses a major event or a period of your life that affected you deeply, good or bad. getting these sayings when your young and don't know how the world is is just naïve. i am optimistic but im also a realist. obviously there are exceptions to this.

      i got my first tattoo when i was 15 - dedicated to my fucked up little childhood. this my way of expressing emotions i couldn't voice, feelings of determination to move on and be a stronger person.

      some of the sayings on this aren't exactly meaningful

      eg "dance like no ones watching"

      fair enough be young and carefree but come on, that's something you'd see on someones facebook profile

      Some advice;

      To those getting tattoos translated from English to say Italian. Look into it first. Ask someone, if you know they speak fluently. After all, some languages speak backwards. And don't always trust a 'translator' off the internet. Because they arent always correct.

      I (personally) believe only you know what quotes/phrases/words you want on your body. Sure its fine to ask people for advice and what they think etc but at the end of the day it is your body, your life and your the one who has to look at it every day.

      I have a star tattoo'd on my wrist. And the words for my father who passed away; "its only forever not long at all". I am also designing a tattoo at the moment, twin old style revolvers with angel wings. Which is me, when you think about the concept a bit more; guns=rebel. angel wings=good.

      Either way, im happy with what Ive got and will be getting. Those can judge and discriminate but Im happy.

      Cheers guys.

      i guess im looking for a quote to do with strength but nothing is standing out to me more than the word strength.

      i have three tattoos at the moment and i think my favorite is my foot, (little toe to heal) the words "each step at a time" in the rough times its something im always thinking of and i guess that's why im hunting for something to do with strength also.

      - for everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.

      - the heart was made to be broken.

      - for the moment its a dream but if there is passion why not dream.

      - because is not a reason its just an excuse.

      - you can always give advice but never use your own.

      - when you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.

      - if your not willing to respect yourself then how do you expect to be respected.

      - if we clutter our minds with dirty words such as "must" and "should" we trade pleasure for pressure.

      - save the rain, ignore the pain.

      - you may be decent but no one is ever innocent.

      - i didn't get any answers cause i was asking the wrong questions.

      - experience is the ultimate teacher.

      - sometimes you have to be a bitch to get things done.

      - lifes to short to blend in.

      - when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose.

      - its about the journey not the destination.

      - life; simple but difficult. don't let no body get close. live for a purpose not somebody elses purpose.

      hey ryan, if you haven't already gotten your tatoo how about, "we are nothing without brotherhood". its a line from the song intentions. also, i'm thinking of getting a tatoo soon, either a celtic heart on my left shoulder or a quote on my lower back. i really like these two i found - "never stop dreaming" and a quote from kurt cobain "wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are". if anyone has any good quotes about being proud of who you are, i'd love to hear them. thanks!

      I was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. I have been cancer free for about 7 months now. When the doctor gave me the news I got a tat across my upper breast that says " living my life" in lower case cursive and the "L" in life is my cancer ribbon. I love it because when I was sick everyone followed me around telling me to rest and stop doing my everyday things. I am a single mother of 3 and I wasn't gonna let the word cancer keep me from living my life. ;)

      To all those who are asking for quotes;

      A tattoo is something you'll have to live with forever, and so the quote should mean something to you, not just something that someone else has suggested, I have 6 tattoos, all of which mean something so I know that I won't regret them. So just try and find something that is personal, it might take longer to find, but it'll be worth it I promise!

      I am getting my first tattoo next year when I turn 60. I have gone thru a lot to get to that age. I'm going to use my husbands name...I think on my forearm with Pooh Bear.

      For those of you who wanted some quotes:

      Take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sisty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

      Don't be afraid that your life will afraid that it will never begin.

      Live the life you imagined.

      People who are the hardest to love, probably need it the most.

      There are no ordinary moments.

      It's the journey that brings us happiness, not the destination.

      You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

      Hope is griefs best music.

      Hope this is some inspiration for those of you looking for the perfect quote to use. Take your will have to live with it for a long time! Good luck.

      I have 2 tattoos. The first one I got on the inside of my lip with the date that my closest cousin committed suicide. The last one was a quote above my right hip that says "There's too much beauty to quit" from the movie Stay. I got both when I was 17 and they mean the world to me. I was the first to arrive on the scene of a friend of mine's car crash and I ended up watching him burn to death. However when I look in the mirror and see my tattoo it helps me get through the pain.

      You know, it's a bit ironic how the majority of the people commenting on here are teenagers aiming at tattooing "life quotes"...

      You're a teenager, you've just began your life, and you're trying to tattoo philosophical statements on yourself? Get out of here.

      The majority of adults don't get tattoos for a reason....

      I absolutely love the "I can't see you, but I know you're always there". That describes my uncle and I. He passed away in September and we were that close. I have 3 stars on my ankle with "Shine on..." just above it. It represents my 2 friends that passed away this summer and my cousin that passed in 2007. They're gone but they'll always be my shining stars.

      actually i think its good that teenagers are thinking about such deep and philosophical things, too many teenagers stumble through their adolesence without a thought about their life or the consequences of their actions and where it might take them in the future. its great that they're thinking about their own life without living selfishly like many teenagers do nowadays.

      melcor 6 years ago

      • believe the impossible

      • What’s meant to be will always find a way

      • The key to change, is to let go of fear

      • Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever

      • You will find only what you bring in.

      • To put it nicely, I hope you choke.

      • It is not our abilities that show what we truly are,it is our choices

      • Something’s are better left unsaid

      • Attack life, its going to kill you anyways

      • If something is destined to happen, it will happen.

      • never a failure, always a lesson

      • what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger

      • the only way out is through

      • Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

      • Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.

      • In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on.

      • I hear and I forget, I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

      • Life is not one thing after another. It's the same damn thing over and over!

      • Life goes on

      • Men are like roses; watch out for all of the pricks.

      • If love isn’t a game, then why are there so many players?

      • Love and learn, forgive and forget

      • Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.

      • every ending is a new beginning

      • everything happens for a reason

      • when nothing goes right, go left

      • You'll never fall, till you let go. Don't be so scared of what you don't know.

      • You just have to learn to forget the people who forget you.

      • The only people you need in your life are the ones that prove they need you in theirs.

      • Seriously, take a hike!

      • The first step to getting the things you want out of life is… Decide what you want!

      • bruised but never broken

      i have the tattoo "the heart sees what's invisible to the eye" on my shoulder blade, and im thinking about getting something on my foot. how does "life is full of beauty" sound?

      How can people be so naïve to think that because you are a teenager you haven't experienced enough. I know that before I hit aged 16 I had been through more than what most people do in a lifetime. I dealth with emotional, physical and sexual abuse and many forms of addiction - and wanted a tattoo to show my strength and ability to accept what is. Fifteen years later and I've never once regretted my tattoos. Don't be so judgemental not all teens' biggest concern is their latest crush...

      I wanted to get a tattoo for a way of showing how much i love my girlfriend, but i wanted to know if Alis Volat Propriis or "She Flies On Her Own Wings" is just a tattoo that a girl would get. Cos she is very independent and it suits how she is. So any advice please?

      "Failure is impossible." - Susan B. Anthony

      "Love is the irresistible desire to be desired irresistibly." - Louis Ginsberg

      @Verena i think "believe" carries the most power then i think "sometimes even fairytales come true" but you gotta get the 1 that speaks to you try drawing em on with pen and looking at em in the mirror a few times, simple but effective 4 my 21st in 2 weeks im getting "make your dreams your destiny":)

      Are you people deciding to get tattoos of what someone else likes or what you like? If your marking your body permanently then it shouldn't matter what these other people think! As well if your asking questions, then its not something your ready for.
