OK. want another tattoo and I was thinking of getting

'He who ask a question is a fool for five minutes he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever' written in chinese on my upper back.

I got a dagger on my lower back.

do you think that perticular proverb is kinda silly though?? I looked at alot of proverbs though its not really a 'cool proverb' this one really does fit me.

What do you think?

I think it would make more sense to have it written in English tbh.

Well it is a Chinese proverb at least. But OP, no, it sounds **** to be frank.

Why in Chinese? It's not a proverb particuarly well-associated with the country or the culture, unless you personally make that connection. If you want something written in Mandarin just for the mystique of having something written in Mandarin, perhaps you should re-evaluate why you're getting a tattoo in the first place.

I'd also suggest that you don't need a particular quote engraved into your skin in order to follow it. But that's just me.

Hmm that is a bit lame; if you're going for writing get a quote from a song that really means something to you.

That sounds a rediculously bad idea. Are you even chinese? And why you'd want that written across your back anyway is beyond me. But err, yeah, good luck with that.

"I'm not alone" it is then.

Veni, vidi, vici Is my next choice, it means I came, I saw, I conquered. Julius Ceaser said this after winning a battle.

I personally think a proverb isn't the best subject for a tattoo. Choose a symbol that has a meaning. I have a scorpion, which means healing, and protection from the dead. It's a good place to start choosing symbolism rather than something like a proverb. It makes a good conversation starter too
