The Latin Language Today's Popular Culture

It's no secret that Angelina Jolie is fond of tattoos; everyone is familiar with the tattoo she got in honor of her now ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton, then later had covered up. And publicity shots of soccer great David Beckham frequently show his bare back, revealing the names of his sons tattooed in thick black ink.

But did you know that these celebrities also have Latin tattoos as well? Angelina's is on her lower stomach (next to a thick black cross that covers up a small blue dragon she got while drunk in Amsterdam) and says, "Quod me nutrit me destruit" meaning, "What nourishes me also destroys me." David Beckham's Latin phrase is on his left inner forearm, just below his wife Victoria's name which is misspelled in a Hindi script. The phrase reads, "Ut Amem Et Foveam" meaning "so that I love and cherish."

Although it is now extinct, Latin was once the universal language spoken in Europe at least as early as the 1st century BC, and it is a language that we can all relate to as many modern-day words are derived from it. But today, you can still hear some Latin, even if you are not attending mass at the Vatican in Rome or in Florida with my grandmother (who still says her prayers in Latin, as she was taught to do in the 1930s), or chatting with doctors (primum non nocere, which means "first, do no harm") or lawyers (habeas corpus, an order requiring that a person be brought before a judge). In fact, many people still use Latin today without realizing it. Bona fide is Latin for "good faith," ad hoc means "for this purpose," and quid pro quo means "something for something," which is used in modern-day banter to mean "tit for tat."

In omnia paratus: Ready for anything (or prepared for everything)

Designing a Latin Tattoo: The Translation

Luckily, unlike tattoos of Hebrew and Arabic words and phrases, Latin phrases are fairly easy to translate for the sake of tattooing. Wikipedia offers an extensive list of Latin phrases, many of which make for beautiful and inspirational designs.

As with any tattoo that is done in a foreign language not your own, make sure you do your homework. We've all heard the stories of people who get tattoos in other languages that look good but mean absolutely nothing, or worse—mean something they did not intend or perhaps even the opposite of what they wanted it to say. Double-check your translation with several sources before you get it inked on your skin. Because the Latin language is extinct, you won't be able to find a native speaker. Instead, ensure your translation is correct by either using several online translators or confirming its accuracy with a Latin teacher or scholar.

Latin Tattoo Translation Mistakes

Warning: Don't get a tattoo that is misspelled or translates into something other than what you'd thought. Before you get inked, make sure you have the words right! Check it again and again. Know that online translation devices are just robotic and often make mistakes (turn verbs into nouns, mix words around, confuse genders, and make other inhuman errors).

You might consider posting a question on an online forum and inviting Latin scholars to help you with the phrase. If you post a comment below, you might get lucky, since Latin students and scholars sometimes chime in to help with translations there.

You should also spend some time sleuthing out the proper pronunciation because, well, it's your tattoo.

Latin Tattoo Fonts

Of course, with any written tattoo, the style of the lettering matters as much as the words themselves. Here are some suggestions for fonts you might like to use.

        Angelus-i is already a latin word.

        It does not belong to archaic times though, you can not easily find it until the I sec with the spreading of Christianity to translate angelos (messenger) from ancient greek.

        @Ian Ray: Deus solus me iudicare potest.

        @Susan: you can't translate it litteraly. The concept of family in ancient Rome is too different from your idea of family. Maybe "familia aeterna est"

        @McKenzie Barnes: I would stick with Sister = soror. Little sister I don't think it exists. Maybe minor, iunior...

        I search the internet and found Semper Pugnare. In the Netherlands (dutch) is sounds like somebody who always fight like a boxer or someone who always get in trouble for fighting. But I mean fight for what you love and do what makes you happy and never give up etc.

        I am a latin scholar here to the rescue! It's late and I'm bored so I decided to use my expensive education to save people from making terrible tattoo mistakes. :) Here's what I've got so far:

        “Let your wings unfold” = “Fiat alis tuis explicare”

        “Life is too short to live with fear” = Vita nimis brevis est cum metu vivere.

        “To dare is to do” = Audere est facere. / Audere facere est.

        “The truth will set you free” = Veritas liberabit vos. (from John 8:32 - et cognoscetis veritatem et veritas liberabit vos.)

        “family and nation has got your back” = Familia et patria tua te sustentat. (literally: your family and country sustain/support you. delete the “tua” to get rid of “your” if you wish)

        Accept your fate or be destroyed by it = Accipe sors tua aut disperī (literally a command/curse: (you) accept your fate or (you) be destroyed!) The long mark over the i in disperī is necessary for its meaning.

        “God is alone” (as in God is unaccompanied) / “God alone” (as in “God alone is to be praised”) = “Deus solus (est).” (the “est” is optional. If you want to say that God has no friends it is “Deus incomitatus (est).”

        “There is more to life than just being alive” = “Non est vivere sed valere vita est” (Life is not about living so much as about living well. An established and beautiful latin maxim)

        “Time waits for no one.” = “Tempus neminem expectat” (an established Latin phrase of comparable meaning is “Tempus neminem manet” which literally means “Time remains for no one”).

        Always remember the good = “Semper memento bonum” (it’s a command)

        “Guardian Angel” = “Angelus Custos”

        (The guardian angel prayer would be a good tattoo for sure!

        “Angele Dei,

        qui custos es mei,

        Me tibi commissum pietate superna;

        Hodie illumina, custodi, rege, et guberna.

        Amen.”)

        “What does not kill me makes me stronger” = “Quod non occidet me fortiorem facit”

        “Home is where the heart is” = “Ubi cor, ibi patria est” (the “patria” is the latin equivalent of “home” because it refers to one’s homeland, which was more precious than the house itself since it included generations of family having lived and died on the same land.)

        What a great idea for a tattoo! Using Latin words and phrases will make you feel scholarly, to boot. Actually, my favorite Latin phrase is "sursum corda" which means "lift up your hearts". If I do get a tattoo, I would definitely use that. Morale booster. :)

        hello,

        I am Brazilian and I was wondering how it would look in Latin: "What does not destroy me, makes me stronger."

        I want to get a tattoo with this phrase that I find wonderful.

        Thanks

        hugs

        He told me to stay calm and let the spell do it’s work, which indeed it did. Not even 3-4 days later, Wells called me and asked me out for a drink. He apologized to me and sincerely begged me for forgiveness and to give him another chance. I loved this man so much, I could not say no. He now treats me like a princess better than before if I may add. Dr. Ogun made a believer out of me. I wrote to him and apologized for my rudeness and lack of trust and patience. He also explained to me that magic is not like a push-button kind of thing. It sometimes takes longer than anticipated but it always works and he was right. You may also need help in your love life and i recommend him as he is a great spell caster. Contact him via: Templeofloveandmoney@gmail.com
