Guys, help me out. I need the word ‘strong’ translated for a tattoo. Google Translate says ‘strong=fortis’ is this correct? *possibly strong=forctis?

Yes, fortis means strong.

I advise against creating your tattoo phrases with google translate.

What do you mean by strong? Can lift heavy weights, withstand hostile forces, strong willed, able to withstand temptation?

So, I should not do a single Latin word on a tattoo? Also, is there a difference between ‘strong body’ vs ‘strong mind’? Lastly, I am mostly worried that forctis is an adjective and fortis is an adverb? Maybe? Idk

fortis is a Latin adjective meaning strong
forctis is Google for what kind of idiot uses Google Translate for a tattoo?


Can you put what you mean by strong into a sentence?
