uncial is just a font style. You can leave the words in Irish, and just put them in any uncial font.

If you want the words in Irish:


As for fearless, if it needs to be one word:

- or -

But more commonly we'd say gan eagla or gan faitíos

Mwhombat has already gave you the Irish words above, or do you mean Scottish Gaelic when you say in Gaelic?

on another thread, jon_jon wrote:the words fearless and stoner and marijuana plz

Asking for confirmation is a good idea, but let's keep it on this thread.

I've given you the words for "fearless" and "marijuana". I'm not aware of an Irish word for "stoner". Perhaps someone else will know a word for it.

Wombat's Quick Explanation of Fonts Modern Irish uses the regular latin alphabet, so any normal font will work fine, as long as it has the accented vowels -- which most do. You can experiment with all kinds of fonts here:

Also, until the middle of the last century a font style called sean-chló was used (you can preview this by selecting fonts with names ending in "-chló". When sean-chló is used, lenition is normally indicated by placing a dot over the consonant, instead of placing a h after it as we do today. So you can shorten your inscription or tattoo by replacing all instances of bh with , ch with ċ, dh with , fh with , gh with ġ, mh with , ph with , sh with , and th with . (You should see dots above those consonants.) Any occurrence of h at the beginning of a word is simply left alone. You'll probably want to use old-style spelling to match, so ask us for help with this.
