3 steps to get HUGE Tengwar fonts!

Here’s a guide to help all Quenya101 audience who’s getting their first contact with the site, its services and how they work. Frequently, people look for accurate translations for lifetheir future tattoo and not only that, they want it written as large as possible in order to aid their inking process. Where can they get ALL that? Quenya101 of course!!!!!

So,… here’s a quick guide to show you can get exactly all that, super fast, super accurate and ready to be designed on your skin:

Step 1

Make your request at Tattoo Q101 or Max Tattoo 360

Those are the main services perfect for tattoos. The basics about them are: they bring you huge Tengwar fonts through packs chosen by you and they are answered super fast. Tattoo Q101 is answered within 101 hours and you can choose 1 pack with 6 Tengwar fonts while Max Tattoo 360 is answered within 360 minutes (extra urgent if you have an imminent tattoo appointment) and you get 4 packs with 24 Tengwar fonts total (all fonts possible so you get to decide which style to go). Get more info by clicking the links above.

Step 2

Fill the form and wait the delivery

Well, that’s a simple step but it’s not less important. Have in mind that sometimes it’ll be needed some further clarifications about your request concerning quotes’ sources, names’ etymology, etc; and I’ll contact you through your Paypal email so we can talk about them.

Tattoo Q101 Request HeaderMax Tattoo 360 Request Header

When one answers accurately the Tattoo Q101 and Max Tattoo 360 form, barely nothing additional is necessary, and that will contribute for a smooth 101-hour (or 360-minute) wait.

Step 3

Check the site and save the image for you

You’ll receive an email with a link directly to the site’s page where your answer is. Click and check it. Now comes the tricky part, saving the image as huge as possible. Follow the images below and you’ll manipulate the image for your advantage and get the most of your translation.

1

Right click + open image in new tab

2

No matter how the image comes, check the width size in the address bar. Through it you can…

3

…enlarge the image as huge as you want. Try something around 10,000, for instance.

4

Voilà! You’re ready to save it huge! Head to your ink artist with it.

Voilà! Those are all the steps, all you need to do so you get your quote/sentence/name accurately translated/composed into Quenya as large as possible.

One important detail is: Sometimes people do not use Tattoo Q101 or Max Tattoo 360 to request things. When that happens, the image size is not designed for tattoo purposes and cannot be manipulated to be large and still keep good resolution and quality. Here’s an example how you identify those instances:

6

This is an example of an image that cannot be enlarged. Its address bar ends up with no width size.

If you have any further doubts about any Q101 services, feel free to contact me! I’ll be delighted to deliver you exactly what you want and how you want! Pleasure is all mine.

Elvish Tattoo Hall of Fame 2017

mt360A few days ago came to my attention the size of impact I caused on many people’s lives and skins when I browsed through all emails I have received so far about requests for tattoos and their actual pics when they are completed and how joyful people are to have them accomplished.

You know, let’s be realistic. Quenya is not pop. It’s not trendy. The regular average person out there doesn’t have a clue of what Quenya is. In my personal experience some usually mistake that for a country in Africa. (That’s Kenya, by the way).

So, the ones who come to me with their requests and do go the extra mile to have them inked…woooow…. I take my hat off to them. They are not average. They are not the common regular person out there clueless to what Quenya is and what it stand for. Above all, they really took time and effort to search a good source to have it accurately inked in their bodies! Well for all that,  I praise them! I laud them for the deep meaning attached to what they have done. Each one individually has a story to tell and all of them are connected by TOLKIEN LANGUAGE, Quenya.

To celebrate all these accomplishments by Quenya101 fans, here I bring you, the most extensive tattoo library up to date with dozens of accurate Quenya tattoos originated from Quenya101 since its very first years of existence.

 

Also, that gallery has become a permanent one in the right column of the site. It’s simply just too good to be one post only.

Thank you all for being there and bearing the inks made in beauty by artists around the world and translated with much love and passion…

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 fill the form HERE 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:

green-elven

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!
