    Default Hebrew Tattoos

    Hi, I have been running a small translation and design service for Hebrew tattoos... it was going well . But people have started offering these services for free... so I was just wondering how other tattoo design artists are dealing with the free competition?

    Why would someone charge for this translation..? People can just research it theirselves when desiging their tattoo & if they don't, the artist that designs it would do so.

    because people get it wrong often, so a translater helps tones

    Ah. I wouldn't have thought a tattooist would get a translation like that wrong but, yeah it kinda makes sense.

    It's very nice of them to do that. People spend enough money getting the tattoo.

    One of my mates thought he had "hate" on his back... It actually means "book".

    I also remember how my other mate felt when he came back from china having found out the symbol he got didn't mean "love and peace" it meant "egg fried rice".

    I know someone who thought they had a Sanskrit tattoo of someone's name (family member or something), when in fact it was just the cuneiform letters for "ABCDEFG". Not even the right language. Awesome.

    This is why cover up tattoos were invented.

    I don't know if I could ever get a tattoo in a language I didn't know.

    its a ton easier just to get it translated the right way and then get it tattooed, thats one thng you dont want f-ed up, yea theres cover ups but if it means a lot to some people then they wont get it covered up, they'll just get it done right
    I have: Navel, Lobes x2, 1 cartilage in each ear, Nose

    Live with no regrets because at one point it was exactly what you wanted...
