Quotations for tattoos

So, I have two questions about “rules” for getting quotes tattooed on yourself.

First off, I’ve noticed a lot of people don’t get quotation marks around the quote. I don’t want to seem like I’m trying to claim it as my own, but I’m not sure if it’s the norm to get quotes on it.

My second question is, should I change the quote?

It’s from a book called Rant: An Oral Biography Of Buster Casey. The quote is “We won’t ever be as young as we is tonight”

I know I’m going to get a lot of people bringing up the grammar, but personally, I’m not really interested in changing the quote.

What do you guys think?

What do I think?
Rant wasn’t his best book and you’d be better off getting a quote from Fight Club or Invisible Monsters. Questions of taste in lit aside- it’s your body and your tattoo. If you want quotes, get them. If not, it’s perfectly acceptable to get the tattoo without them.

  1. So agree, didn’t care for Rant what so ever. Invisible monsters or Lullaby. are my picks.

    And I think the quote is stupid personally, but hey it’s your body.

  2. I say, get whatever quote YOU want regardless of what anyone says. But since you asked for opinions: I wouldn’t do quotation marks, I just think they’re unnecessary and a bit odd with tattoos. Also, if I like a quote enough to get it tattooed on my body then I probably wouldn’t change it.
