I was pointing out what I thought was a pretty obvious shortfall in someone not from Germany getting a tattoo in German. I have customers who gripe to me about how into Norse mythology they are and how they can't get tattoos of a lot of that stuff because the fucking skinheads have turned all that stuff into code, and the suggested tattoo above has a motto that, coupled with a skeleton, could probably be mistaken as some nazi shit. 'Scuse me for trying to be helpful.
its true , skinheads and neo Nazi's and even some "pagan" groups misuse norse and germanic theology and mythology far to happily.
and there will ofcourse be some that will misconstrue the idea behind the tattoo.

alright thank you son of Horus, i didn't really think about people mistaking it for some sort of Third Reich related tattoo, but that would be like a white guy getting the same tattoo in English and someone foreign thinking its a KKK tat, i know thats highly improbable but over here the only Third Reich enthusiasts are some of the WW2 German vets who have come here to live the rest of their days in peace. so its highly unlikely anyone is going to mistake it.
