Hi Folks, I must say this forum has been an exceptional learning experience for me not just for understanding Latin and it's beauty but to understand the spread of it amongst people. It is through reading this that I have been inspired to add a Latin phrase to my current tattoo and sincerely request anyone help in understanding what would be the correct usage of the language. There are a few phrases I have picked online though I am unsure as to the correctness of them. This is meant to be an offering to the two women I love in my life, my wife and my mother as a reflection to my spiritual self. I would appreciate any corrections and thoughts that anyone could offer to the below or one that you feel reflects a sincere expression of my love and devotion to these women in my life and the Divine God as well. In manus tuas commendo spiritum meum - As I understand this means "Into your hands I entrust my spirit" Totus Tuus - Totally Yours - This Latin phrase represents the desire to offer ones life in total commitment to another. I was hoping to say "Totus Tuus Dea" (Totally Yours Goddess) or "Totus Tuus Domina" ( Totally Yours Mistress) Or "Totus Tuus Matris" (Totally Yours Mother) Servus Divini Dea - servant of the divine goddess (Not sure if this is correct at all or how to say it) luceat lux vestra -- let your light shine Id also like to be able to say "Let your light shine through your precious" Or "Let your light shine through me" Umbra Dei Domina - The Shadow of Mistress (Not sure if this is correct at all) Sub tuum praesidium - "Beneath thy compassion" or could also mean "under your protection" I'd like to be able to say "Under Your Guidance and Protection" or perhaps "Your precious is guided by your light"
