    People after seeing this will really get impressed. The quotation tattoos shows the attitude of the people. Liked a lot.

  • Jai

    These tattoos really look cute and very sensible. However, it looks very painful.. hahha

  • Bdouble

    Okay first I hope you really don’t think that Drake made up the quote, “everybody dies but not everybody lives.” Drake couldn’t make up anything but his career. For the challenged people I’m saying he’s fake!
    An american poet named William Ross Wallace came up with this quote which is properly stated, “Every man dies – Not every man really lives.”
    Second I haven’t heard the song by labrinth but i know that the phrase “meet me in Montauk” is also in the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Great quote either way.
    And lastly the only other one I know is “sometimes when you fall you fly” is a shortened version of a quote from Neil Gaimen in his book, The Sandman Vol. 6 and it goes, “Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.” So she just left off the beginning. Good tattoo, book, and quote.

  • Ben Stuart

    I really like ‘if you want to sing out, sing out’-like the meaning behind it.

  • Tarun Jaitely
