I found this image online. I'd like to make sure it's correct before permanently inking it on someone.

I have searched other places and found corrections to be made but I know many people have different opinions about such things.

Any and all advice is welcome.

I've removed your photo because it's way oversized. Feel free to resize it to our guidelines (which I'll post below) and repost it within this thread. Smile

The specific guidelines for posting pictures within the message body of your post are as follows: the maximum size of any picture posted should be 525 wide x 400 pixels high (or a better measure is: 210,000 pixels squared - width x height), but no wider than 670 pixels. The maximum file size per picture should be 45k. The cumulative file size of all pictures in one post should not exceed 225k (5 pictures of the maximum filesize of 45k, 10 pictures of a filesize of 22.5k, etc.). These guidelnes apply to pictures hosted on other sites as well as to pictures posted as attachments to your post. For more detailed help on posting within a message body, check out Magpie's step-by-step TORn Image Posting Guide.

You might be better off just posting a link, at least to the larger image.

I was able to read that easily - it's nicely done! There are many variations of Tengwar fonts, this one is an elegant script.

Yes, it's genuine, and will make a fine tattoo. Cool

This is also good. [In reply to] Can't Post

There are differences, but they're phonetic, such as the first using the phonetic "is/iz" with a "z", and the second using the straight spelling with an "s".

I also see variations in "th" (the "dh" vs. "th" sounds), and "r" (whether it's "hard" or "soft" when spoken), and placement of the tehtar (vowels), but again these are all valid.

So it would depend on whether you'd like a circle or linear form!
