Typography people! And/Or people that know Latin!

Or people who have opinions about tattoos! I need your help!


So...I think I'm going to break my rule about getting words tattooed on myself.

I want to get: "Don't let the nothing bury you" but in Latin.

It's been a while since I took Latin, though, so I'm not entirely sure what it should be.


Is "Noli nothis permittere te terere" correct? I don't know where else to find the answer.

Also, I'm not sure what font I want to get it in, or even where I want it. Ideally, I'd like it someplace I can see it, but my first idea (around my wrist) is probably not a good idea since it's not easy to hide.


So I'm open to any and all suggestions.

I have two other tattoos planned, but one got put on (maybe permanent) hold as MitsuBT got the EXACT SAME THING tattooed (in the same place even!) as I had originally planned. He did not know this, of course (he already had the tattoo deposit and appointment booked before we even met), but when he showed me, I about had a heart attack. So no matchy tattoos. :( (If your curious, it's Van Gogh's Starry Night, so now I have to pick a different Van Gogh because I WILL HAVE A VAN GOGH TATTOO DAMMIT)


The other tat is going to be insanely expensive so it's going to have to wait.

Edit: I notice I use a lot of parentheses sometimes. That's probably annoying.
