- Apr 1, 2005First off, I never said that as soon as I had approval from one
person on this message board I was going to run out and get this
tattooed. I'm doing my research, looking through different sources,
and not necessarily going on what I've read from one person's web
site. I'd be an idiot to run out and get it tattooed as soon as
someone on the internet that I've never talked to before writes "Yep,
looks good!". I understand where you're coming from but I came here
seeking help, not condescending attacks.
"Do you really beleive that Tolkien sat behind his desk
and "translated" or "adatpted" the entire list of thousand English
Names and Surnames into his languages you ahve seen ?" -- No, I was
quite aware that it was written by a Tolkien fan and had it been
written by Tolkien himself, I would have had no need to come to this
message board for opinions. Unlike you seem to think, not everyone
on this board is out to get me. There are plenty of people who are
very knowledgable about the languages. And no, I didn't just run out
and see the movies and said "I want a tattoo in Elvish!". I've read
the books multiple times and have been a fan for years. I've also
contemplated the tattoo for years and am just attempting to get some
opinions. I don't wish to continue this any further so I'm ending
