    Ive been looking at some latin quotes that I like for a tattoo. The quote Im looking for is A new beginning. Ive found a couple I just want to know the differences. I found "initium novum" "novum principium" and "ex novo origo" I really like the initium novum but I dont know which one is the best.

    Why "Ex novo origo"? Both initium novum and novum principium mean "new beginning" (I'm not sure of the nuances of each, though).

    Yeah I don’t remember where I found “ex novo origo” I wasn’t sure how close it was to the others. But thank you I appreciate it!

    No problem. If you want to use origo btw, it would be nova origo.
