Tattoo phrases are nowadays popular among people of all ages. They are not only aesthetically pleasing but also represent the person’s beliefs about the world. For example, to some, tattoo quotes can be a reminder of a memorable part of their life, or their thought process, or even a life-lesson which should be applied in everyday living. So, if you are looking for a tattoo quote, make sure to pick the one that represents your personality. Some tattoo quotes are short. However, some people look for long phrases as they can explain the things better. And the back is the best place to get long tattoos.
Here we have compiled the powerful inspirational quotes that (may) remind you of your character. See below if anyone of these fits your persona.
“She’s a rare breed, matter fact, she’s an endangered species. Her heart’s been broken and just like mine, it remains in pieces. But every time we’re near each other smile is all we can do, our shattered souls intertwine. I know I’ve felt the same kind of agonizing pain she’s been through and I find comfort in her grasp so I reach out with both arms…”
“Those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.”
“But love. I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.”
“Through a long and painful process, I've learned that happiness is an inside job - not based on anything or anyone in the outer material world. I've become a different and better person - not perfect, but still a work in progress.”
“Your personal life, your professional life, and your creative life are all intertwined. I went through a few very difficult years where I felt like a failure. But it was actually really important for me to go through that. Struggle, for me, is the most inspirational thing in the world at the end of the day - as long as you treat it that way.”
“Don't ever criticize yourself. Don't go around all day long thinking, 'I'm unattractive, I'm slow, I'm not as smart as my brother.' God wasn't having a bad day when he made you... If you don't love yourself in the right way, you can't love your neighbour. You can't be as good as you are supposed to be.”
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”
“I'm a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to always be nice, always smiling, always happy, that's not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiseled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand.”
“As long as your intentions are solid and about growth and progression and being productive and not being idle, then you're doing good in my book.”
“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is an eternity.”
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
So these are some powerful tattoo quotes for your back. However, make sure to choose the one that described you the best. Besides, take care of other elements like font, design, language, and color. Most people choose a black color to make a bold statement, though it is just a matter of choice.
The font is another element to look for. It enhances the spirit of your tattoo quote. Wacky fonts are mindboggling for quotes that are supposed to be funny, whereas cursive font is great for romantic thoughts. The design lets you experiment with your creativity. You can add different colors, symbols and even letters from some other ancient languages. One more thing—decide the right language, if you are looking to get a tattoo other than in your native language.
Last but not the least—choose the right tattoo artist who is skilled in making quotes tattoos.
