Not all those who wander are lost HUGE Tattoo Q101 Edition

gandalf-not-all-those-who-wander-are-lost-in-quenya-2

The mother of all translations in Quenya.

Not all those who wander are lost whole poem.

Floyd Rivera requested through Tattoo Q101 AND Floyd Rivera got it in 86 hours through Tattoo Q101

I bring you the revised edition of the original translation made by Ondo Carniliono few years ago. What is revised? Well, minor things. I kept the poetic and free spirit made originally and added a tiny bit only. It’s ridiculously tiny, don’t panic. Notice that Quenya101 version takes advantage of Quenya declension nature and plays freely with word order. Quenya allows room for that. Below, you won’t find a fixed translation. Literal wording. One word after another. NO! Word order allows it, so we danced with them. Not to mention vocabulary issues too. There are synonyms here and there that could be used differently, you know. So,… what you got here is the most poetic and accurate Quenya translation, aimed at the beauty of the idea behind the poem and using Quenya language to the farthest it can be reached.

In this post you’ll get the whole High-Elven Tengwar Collection If you’re interested in more fonts, check the Poem & Prose page here. Also, Quenya101 site is flowing abundantly with Tolkien translations. Use the search box, you’ll find it! If you don’t, just follow Floyd’s example, request it!

Do you want an extra mile? Check the full analysis here 

Now, let’s all grab our walking sticks and wander with Tolkien through this beautiful poem. Watch your step, wander freely but be lost not.

Elvish Tattoo Guide

everything

Starting October, 12th, 2016 Quenya101 brings you this new featured service, the Elvish Tattoo Q101!

tumblr_o2iejeu4d01sa2p7qo1_500Have you got the feeling of tattooing the most beautiful alphabet created by Tolkien with a very significant sentence of yours BUT….are you afraid you might end up with gibberish?

Fear it not, my human friend! With Tattoo Q101 not only you’re gonna get a most accurate Quenya translation, but you’re gonna have it HUGE, 6x HUGE (for tattoo artists’ sake). So how does it work? Just like the very good old Fast Line with some differences.  Check the quick FAQ here so you know all details:

FAQ Index

1 – What is Tattoo Q101?

2 – How long does it take to get my answer?

3 – How does it work?

4 – How many things can I get with one single donation?

5 – What exactly do I get with each kind of request (names, quotes, sentences & special dates)?

6 – How large are these HUGE Tengwar fonts?

7 – How many Tengwar fonts do I get and where do I choose them?

8 – I do want my ink as accurate as possible! Where will I be answered? Where do I click?

1 – What is Tattoo Q101?

It’s how you can request anything to be translated accurately into Quenya so you get your tattoo with no concerns, fears or the like.

2 – How long does it take to get my answer?

Up to 101 hours! That’s right! There are huge lines everywhere but you’ll just need to wait few days and voilà! Ready to ink!

3 – How does it work?

Click on the Tattoo Q101 buttons on the site, donate the requested amount and leave a message (if no message is left, please comment at the site or contact me) with your donation, asking the name/famous quote/sentence/special date you want to be translated into Quenya.

and-quot-gah-we-re-lost-again-take-your-shirt-off-tom-and-quot-photo-u1

4 – How many things can I get with one single donation?

Per donation you can ask 1 name OR 1 famous quote (taken from books, movies, songs, etc.) OR 1 random sentence at your choice OR 1 special date. Important: quotes and sentences are limited to 150 characters (space and punctuation counting as well). If you want something above the character limitation, please make additional donations accordingly.

5 – What exactly do I get with each kind of request (names, quotes, sentences & special dates)?

You get everything Fast Line already brought you! Check here all the details.

6 – How large are these HUGE Tengwar fonts?

Well, They’re super HUGE! How huge? Instead of describing it, let me show you the regular size and the super HUGE. Compare and draw your conclusions:

q101-regular-size

The regular size. Cool but not good enough for tattoo purposes, huh?

q101-huge-size

Now, we’re talking! HUGE size. Not huge enough? Click on the image and you’ll see… … yeah, perfect, huh?

Bottom line: instead of an average of 24-sized fonts, you’ll get something around 288! (OUCH, my eyes! They blew up on my eyes!)

copytattoo_032

7 – How many Tengwar fonts do I get and where do I choose them?

You can get 6 fonts! That’s right, not only one or two like before. SIX! A whole Tengwar collection. You can choose the one 6-font Tengwar collection you want by clicking on the banners below and checking the styles that suit you:

The One that has it all & The One that praises the Lord

Aiya! It’s me again and I’m here to talk about some friends and their amazing tattoos. As you could guess from the post title, I’m talking about two people. I promise that my double posts will end soon!

First, let me talk about Judith ‘Mithrellas’ Arantes. She’s a good friend of mine and, a while ago, she asked me to translate Psalm 150 into Quenya:

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord

We worked together to find some the perfect translation, with two different translations, finally going for the following:

Á lávë ilyë súliva eälar laitar i Héru

Literally, this means Let every spirit-possessing being praise the Lord. One interesting thing I found while working this translation is the intimate relation between breath and spirit in Quenya. Quoting the Quettaparma:

BREATH (noun) hwesta (breeze, puff of air), foa (puff of breath), súlë (Þ) (spirit) (earlier [MET] form thúlë = Þúlë)

As usual, check out the Tengwar version:

Á lávë ilyë súliva eälar laitar i Héru

But this was not a simple tattoo! It has a full work of art into it! Check it out, together with a photo of Mithy cosplaying as Tauriel:


Now let’s go for the second part of the post.

I promised in my last post that you would hear more of Franz ‘Maglor’ Brehme. Well, Maglor not only tattooed the famous Not all those who wander are lost verse, but MANY other nerd culture references! Batman, Star Wars, Wheel of Time, Tolkien: you name it, he has it somewhere on his body! And Maglor is also a tattoo artist, so you can guess how tattoos are special to him.

So, let’s finish with some photos of him. Don’t get scared by the “bad boy” looks, he’s a very nice person!

That’s all for today, folks!

The Greatest Elvish Tattoo Collection EVER

One year ago, we had the Ultimate Elvish Tattoo Collection which was a big hit and many many people came into contact with the truth about elvish tattoos and the major mistakes involving them (invisible to the lay eye). Now it’s time to update this Quenya101 collection, but let’s forget about the bad examples for a while and focus on the nice stuff, the well done tattoos, the ones who deserve our praise not only because they look cool on the skin but because they respected what Tolkien left to us.

Below you’ll have the finest examples one can get. It may not be news for most of Quenya101 followers, but as new people are always joining our ranks, it’s cool to have them all in one spot. So, BEHOLD…the greatest elvish tattoo collection ever:

I’d like to thank every single one who shared with us their tattoos ( The OneThe One In Female FormThe One With The LightThe One With The ForceThe One With The BirdiesThe One With The TimeThe One With Things To Be SeenThe One With AinulindalëThe One Who Loves Her Sister & The One Who Wanders In Brazil ).

This post will always be updated whenever new jewels join the club. Stay tuned and never forget the golden rule:

Do NOT tattoo something you cannot read!

When an elf reads an elvish tattoo

This is an eye opener. It’s not about elvish tattoos per se. You can check good(?) examples here. This post is about the nauseating feeling one who understands and reads Tengwar, gets when one lays eyes upon the misspelled misfortunes of others’ skins.

Sometimes people don’t get it. They think it’s quite ok getting Tengwar gibberish. “It doesn’t matter” they say. “The letters are beautiful and nobody’s gonna read them anyway” they say. But they are

WЯONG

It matters! There are people who’s gonna read them! Now you’re gonna read the tattoos below and understand how it feels when you can read awful elvish tattoos. BEHOLD:

Who is life?

So,

How does it feel? Would you facepalm them or compliment their beautiful letters? That’s how we (the ones who know Quenya and/or Sindarin) feel when we see tattoos that don’t make sense. I mean, they tried and they felt short. They may look cool and awsome, but they’re not. And the moral of the story is: LEARN how to WRITE first, then get a TATTOO! Be it English, be it Japanese, be it Quenya! It’s golden rule for them all!

For the 4th time, I come here before ye all, to praise a Tolkiendil who permanently and most poetically had that immortal saying marked on his skin. Fernando from Brazil (holy shit! His hometown is my girl’s!!!!) has become part of the club, the exclusive Quenya101 club. From now on he shall be known here as The One Who Wanders In Brazil. Alongside The OneThe One In Female FormThe One With The LightThe One With The ForceThe One With The BirdiesThe One With The TimeThe One With Things To Be SeenThe One With Ainulindalë & The One Who Loves Her Sister. Behold his ink:

A cool guy from a cool place and with lots of things in common. While checking some photos of his, I realized the guy plays Flag Football! Amazing! I never thought there was such an organized Flag in Brazil!

Flag

I don’t know why, when, how is he playing it, he never talked to me before about it. It looks like he’s a cornerback from most of the pics I saw. I’d love if he could tell here about that (I’m really curious). Also….I’m dying to know if there’s any chance he knows my girlfriend? She lives where he lives! Great coincidence! Anyway….
