Quote tattoos have been popular for a while, and the demand for great quote tattoos doesn’t seem to be diminishing anytime soon. Many people would like a meaningful quote to put on their body forever, but don’t know which quote to choose. The best quote tattoos are personal and meaningful to the individual, but there are some quotes that can be universally appealing. Here are just a few great quotes to consider for your next tattoo.
“Do not drop anchor here.”
This quote is adapted from the movie Girl, Interrupted based on the book by Susanna Kaysen. This quote serves as a reminder to not let yourself stagnate and settle where your life is, especially when things seem bad and you feel stuck. Let this quote remind you to keep moving, adapting, and striving to be better and achieve better.
“Trust the dreams.”
Taken from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, the longer version is “Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.” This quote can remind you to trust your own dreams and follow them where they may lead you. Too many of us put off our dreams for a variety of reasons. Remind yourself that it’s okay to pursue what you desire.
“To live in the hearts we leave is not to die.”
This quote from Thomas Campbell could be a good text to accompany a memorial tattoo. When we lose someone we love is one of the darkest times in a person’s life. Remind yourself that they’re always with you with this quote.
“Hope dies last.”
This saying from Mexico would be great for a tattoo. Life without hope is pretty depressing, so keep hoping and expecting the positive until your last breath.
“That love is all there is, is all we know of love.”
This quote from Emily Dickinson is a great reminder to live each day with as much love as you can. Love your life, love your self, the people around you, your partner, whatever, just love!
“Sing to me a deeper song.”
Whether just a music lover looking for a quote to represent that love or someone looking for a metaphorical deeper song in the universe, this beautiful quote can serve you well. This quote is another from The Prophet, and the longer version goes, “If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again together and you shall sing to me a deeper song.”
“Out of opposition, a new birth.”
If you’ve recently faced a really rough time in your life, this Carl Jung quote might be a great quote for you. Maybe you are currently going through something hard and need a reminder that the struggle grows you and changes you, and that things do get better. Remind yourself that you’re strong enough to get through anything.
