And sorry, it's "Et", not "Est", and "Spiritus", not "Spiritas". The tattoo itself *looks* very nice, but 3 misspellings? Someone should have done their homework on this one (and it's VERY easy to research) and for a tattoo artist to ink without checking as much as he/she can...well, this might just be me, but if I'm having writing tattooed permanently on my body, I want it spelled correctly, and would never, EVER go here. Go ahead with "the language police" jokes, but to me it would be like asking to have a tattoo of a flower and getting a machine gun instead. It would ALWAYS be wrong. Sorry

Bansheewail3......the spelling was copied exactly as the customer presented it. I do not Speak, type or understand any language other than English...I am an artist...Not a language consultant.

I performed the art as requested by the Client and that is that.

The 'Et' is correct, you're seeing the curl on the E and assuming. Everything else is how he wanted it.

The tattoo itself *looks* very nice, but 3 misspellings (#3 "nomine")? :wow: Someone should have done their homework on this one (and it's VERY easy to research) and for a tattoo artist to ink without checking as much as he/she can...well, this might just be me, but if I'm having something written permanently on my body, I want it spelled correctly, and would never, EVER go here.

Sorry for the criticism, because I do like the tattoo, and I love the lettering. Sorry. :(
