Every now and then I get a fun request for a tattoo and this mornings effort is a gem of the genre.
"I was wondering if you guys could translate the Seven Deadly sins and the Seven Holy Virtues into Buddhist Sanskrit for me. I want to tattoo it on my back."
Given that he won't be able to read the result - what would you write on his back? Must be in lots of seven!

I'll start the bidding with: बष्वुल्, डक्, डौपी, ग्रंपी, हप्पी, स्लीपी, स्नीसी

  1. Regardless of the fact of believing or not in sins (I don't), why would anyone want a permanent seal written on their back with such words? After all, no matter how artistically or nice they look, they still mean the same negative issues....

    Maybe it is just me but I would rather tattoo myself with something much more harmonic and positive...
