When I started university, I had the option of taking either ancient Hebrew or Latin. Of course I chose Hebrew! But after taking a gander at these bad Latin tattoos, part of me wishes I had taken Latin just to mock the poor souls who got these done.
Sure we all want something cool on our bodies, but as the writer of the Wayward Classicist blog says, don’t put English into a Latin translator and expect something decent to pop out. It just doesn’t work that way, because when a bad Latin tattoo is misspelled on you, it is misspelled forever.
By the way, the 4th photo actually translates as ‘He is better as I appear hated on behalf of what I am
than as I appear I like on behalf of what not I am.’ Awesome.
