    Ok getting some more ink done very soon, getting the family moto that is on the family crest. Now the question is my mate seems to think that no one will know what it means (not that I care what others think).
    'He conquers, who conquers himself'
    Does it make sence to you all?

    I think it means, "if you can conquer yourself, you can conquer anything"

    but yeah.

    yeah it makes sense

    i THINK it's like he has to conquer all his 'demons' before he can go on to conquer other people.

    "He who conquers, conquers himself"

    As long as it has personal meaning then that's cool, cos if it didn't and someone asked you why you had it tattooed on you and you said: "I dunno, it sounds cool" you would look like a 100% total wanker.

    I prefer tribal, hence why my entire left arm is covered mid upper arm, all the way down to my wrist covered all surfaces of my arm. And a huge one of the same style from my right knee down to my ankle.

    But each to their own, you need to get what you like done, otherwise there is no point in getting a tattoo.
