      Lol, no worries. It’s not mine. Though I do think it’s beautifully done. You may not be familiar with the tale yourself, but everyone who has read or watched The Handmaid’s Tale knows that the Latin used in this quote is a joke — or at least a young Latin learner’s attempt at one according to a key character in the story. How it ultimately ties into the story, especially for the heroine, is quite powerful. I recommend both the book by Margaret Atwood and Hulu’s version, which is all ready for you to binge watch its 13 Emmy nominated first season. Thus, this particular tattoo is considered a literary tattoo — one that references The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s not in any way intended to be perfect Latin. 😉
