Tattoo Idea: Translated Phrase from Japanese

Post by selrondir » Mar 2, 2015 11:21 pm

Hi!

I've been trying to determine what this particular Japanese phrase translates to and to see if it sounds awkward or not as a potential tattoo idea:

なるようになるか。

Any assistance would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much!

The base of your phrase can be translated as:
Let nature take its course.
What will be will be.

Yours has "か" at the end, which is sort of a Japanese question mark. So it's like, "What will be will be?"

Also, this is written completely in Hiragana. There's several ways to write this phrase with Kanji peppered in. The most common of which is なる様になる. Although a quick Japanese Google search finds that plenty of Japanese us the "なるようになる" version.

If you want, I can create Japanese tattoo templates for you here:

You'll get about 50 styles to choose from for this phrase. It's $20 for the first English word, and $5 for each additional word. This is 5 English words, but I will let you count it as 4 since you kind of already know the phrase you want. That will be $35 if you want the templates.

Cheers,
-Gary.

I think you missed that instruction and link in my last reply:

Just go here and place the order. I will let you count this as 4 words instead of 5:

The total will be $35.

I have placed the order, but I'm somewhat confused as to how I will receive the templates. Are they digital or hard copies? Do you require an email address or physical address?
