    Vbi amor, ibi dolor.

    Note that Vbi is ubi in lower case, but there's kind of a tradition to write capital Us as Vs in Latin. Not everyone follows it, and Ubi is acceptable too. So you can choose what you like best.

    Thank you for your quick reply, would it be better to be all capitalized as a Latin inscription (tattoo) or to use lower case? And sorry for all the questions but when something is translated from English to Latin, the sentence or phrase still makes sense when you omit the (is) from the English version? Which I think is est in Latin

    I would say that it's up to you.
    In this case, it makes sense to omit est from the Latin.
