If you’ve been mulling over the thought of getting a tattoo, treat this as a sign for you to finally say yes to getting inked! The appeal of tattoos have grown over the years and for good reason. Now, they’re treated like getting a new hair color or shopping for a statement accessory.
But unlike those temporary fashion and beauty fixes, tattoos will last an entire lifetime so deciding on what design to get shouldn’t be taken lightly. The good thing there’s a myriad of designs to choose from depending on what your personal aesthetic is. Whether that’s something simple or intricate, small or vast in size, there’s a tatt out there that’ll perfectly match your style! The only problem is making the right choice.
Though we’re all for graphic tattoos, you may want to consider wordy ones as well! Words have a lot of significance to them and who wouldn’t want a meaningful ink? However, choosing the right word or phrase can be difficult if you have no idea what to search for online. So to lessen the “word clutter” here’s a list phrases and singular expressions that are worthy for your first or next tatt!
10 Significant Word Tattoos Worthy You Should Consider Getting
1. “This Too Shall Pass”
Going through a tough ordeal? Stuck at a point in your life you feel like you can’t get out of? Then why not have a hopeful statement like “This Too Shall Pass” inked on your skin? Treat it as a reminder that your struggles will not go on forever and that there are better days ahead!
2. Double Affirmations
A single affirmation will definitely boost your ego—so why not go for a pair? When life gets you down, pick two phrases of encouragement as a way to lift your spirits even in the darkest of days.
3. “Do Everything In Love”
It’s best to pick sayings that summarize your life philosophy. With everything that’s going on, a positive mindset is always a must. So, the statement “Do Everything In Love” is definitely fitting! Feel free to add tiny designs around these words or complementary symbols to make it look more feminine (if that’s what you’re going for!)
4. “La Vie Est Belle”
This French saying is a popular word tatt because of what it means. In English, it translates to "life is beautiful," which is definitely an encouraging and relatable statement.
5. A Nationalistic Saying
Hear us out, if you’ve got a passionate love for your country and every bit of affection for being a Filipino, then why not pick a nationalistic saying of your choice in a beautiful script?
6. A Religious Reminder
Carry your faith on your sleeve as a tattoo and pick a word like “pray” or “grace” or even a phrase such as “I am with you” as a constantly uplifting reminder. Try adding a few symbols in black and white or a wash of color to liven up your ink, too!
7. “This Girl Can”
Let’s be real, in this day and age, girls should be able to do whatever they want and be whoever they want! So, affirm that right with a simple and powerful statement like “This Girl Can!” This is also a perfect phrase you can scale down to make it a tiny tatt on your wrist, finger, or even the back of your ear!
This simple word is popular as a tatt ‘cause it’s both hopeful and bittersweet. Its meaning can also be ambiguous depending on what you’re going through or have gone through in life, making it the perfect ink for those who don’t want their tatts to have too obvious meanings. If you want to go super subtle, we suggest you have it done in white ink!
9. “You Are So Much More”
A long script saying looks beautiful as a rib or back tattoo! When picking a statement, consider this reassuring affirmation that stands the test of time and is reassuring for both the wearer and the possible viewer, too.
10. “Ad Astra”
Latin sayings are popular as tatts ‘cause they look so pretty whether rendered in a minimalist font or a beautiful script. “Ad Astra,” or "to the stars" in English, in particular is perfect if you’re one to look up to the sky and dream.
