Nietzsche - Tattoowise
Full backed out view of the full tattoo.
This is a detail view of the Friedrich Nietzsche quote, "All things that are truly great are at first thought impossible." The text was the most intense part of the process, but it turned out really well. Just don't move. ;)
My latest tattoo. It's from Nietzsche and literally translates as "love of fate" or "love of one's fate" (depending on verb conjugation and all that stuff). The original quote from Ecce Homo : "My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it - all idealism is mendaciousness in the face of what is necessary - but love it." It has become a personal philosophy of sorts.
