Are you a neo-Nazi or what?
Sangheli, could you give us some more information about the text? Where does it come from, etc?
From the sound of it, I might guess the origin to be medieval...
First I am not a neo-nazi, I am a United States Marine. Secondly I found it in a book a two or three years ago and wrote it down sadly I didn't write down the title of the book...
Sangheli, I understand that you saw the phrase in a book and you found it memorable, not knowing about the neo-nazi reference. I myself did not know about it until yesterday.
However, if you are going to get a permanent tattoo with this expression, I feel it is our duty to make sure you know of all of its potential implications.
If you search for "blood and honour" on google, you will find many resources reinforcing the above.
If you do decide to get this phrase as a tattoo, you may be treated as one of their own by people that support this kind of nationalism, and as an enemy - by those who do not.
This is not anything a person without neo-nazi sympathies may want, is it?
I thank you for brining this to my attention. I guess I should do more research next time thank you again for brining this to my attention oo-rah!
