I need ideas or suggestions for a tattoo. I was thinking about a phrase maybe Seanfhocal or anything else- I already have a tattoo that says Carpe Diem. Im looking for some phrese related to this or something about self strenght.
Anyway I accept any suggestion. I also like the irish phrase Tiocfaidh ár lá , for example. I would be pleased if you can help me. Thanks.

Note that 'Tiocfaidh ár lá' is the unofficial slogan of Irish Republicanism. Might be provocative.

My favorite Irish idiom is

Bain ceol as an saol

It means something like 'Enjoy life', but it literally means 'Get music out of life'.
Note that I am only a learner of Irish. Wait for confirmations!
