    Been thinking about tattoo ideas since I was like 16, but could never come up with something I figured I would actually like. Ive always wanted to get some quote or saying on my forearm, i was throwing around ideas for them and came up with this:

    Now im not a Latin expert, so if anyone knows latin, could you make sure this actually says what its supposed to? lol, its supposed to say "Every end contains new beginning".
    What do you guys think?

    I think you should wait a year and if you still want it, get it.

    translation I got-
    each a boundary mark to ask novel beginning

    edit - the translation you propose is also acceptable.

    why not get it in english if youre not even sure thats the correct translation to a language you probably have no real connection with...

    itd probly get old explaining the translation to people, and when they ask why latin instead of english

    it would be nice if it was like that, but tattoos still carry a certain type of stigma. if the guy is involved in certain professions (i.e. medicine or law), having a visible tattoo like that could be a real deal breaker

    Everything except neck, hands and face can be covered up if it's absolutely necessary, really. So I wouldn't worry about a forearm tattoo even if he's getting into one of those professions.

    Very, very true - but with a forearm tattoo, you just always wear long sleeve shirts in the work environment. And with professions like a lawyer/paralegal/etc, you hardly see people wearing short shirts at an office. So it can usually work itself out.

    true. I'm just speaking from my experience. I have a very small wrist tattoo and I've even gotten some looks on it, especially from our older clients. I hate that that's the way things are but tattoos will always be taboo to some people.
