    I want a Greek tattoo, but I want to search the words first…

    • ANSWER:
      Download Freelang Greek / English dictionary

      www.freelang.net

      Always check your choice of words with someone who speaks Greek before you have it indelibly written on your body because online dictionaries don’t give you much information about the use of the word, the part of speech, the appropriacy of the word for the circumstances. I live in Greece and see dozens of misuses of online or pocket dictionaries every day, especially in restaurants:

      ‘The date’s plate’ for ‘dish of the day’
      ‘nonsenses boiled’ for ‘steamed courgettes’
      ‘Spleen bowels’ actual translation of item on menu but sounds revolting in English

      So beware!

  4. QUESTION:
    greek tattoo words..?
    i was planning to write ‘live forever’ in greek either on my wrist or upper back, but have no idea where i can get its translation. any idea?? any websites?

    if you had a tattoo, what word/phrase would you write?

    • ANSWER:
      Ζήσε για πάντα.

      If i wanted to write something Greek, i would go for some classic ancient wisdom.

      ἓν οἶδα ὅτι οὐδὲν οἶδα

      it means, i just know that i dont know anything.

  5. QUESTION:
    what are good greek words for a tattoo?

    • ANSWER:
      icqanne has a cool suggestion but please add at the begining “Τα…” otherwise it sounds wrong.

      I could suggest an other one: Μηδέν αγαν, nothing in excess.
