Too bad tattoos don’t come with spell check.
I think “What don’t kill you’ll make you more strong” is technically (and shockingly) correct. you’ll can also be ‘you will,’ though it’s a little cumbersome and grammatically challenged.
What don’t is so stilted it throws the rest of the phrase off, completely negating the ‘you will’. If it had said “what doesn’t kill you’ll make you more strong”, there might be more ground to stand on (it would still be wrong, but less so).
more strong should be stronger
While “you’ll” in this context might be technically correct and grammatically challenging_ “more strong” is definitely grammatically… challenged.
you’ll mean you will, as in you will do something…. what the sentence should be is “what doesn’t kill you, will make you stronger” the comma in between you and will means something completely different than you’ll. example… your mom might have said ” You’ll go to school and like it!” but if your girlfriend was crying you wouldn’t want to say ” if i hug you’ll that make you better? ( if i hug you, will that make you better)”… see what the comma does
And “doesn’t” and “stronger” are also cumbersome and grammatically challenged?
I think, that the problem with that sentence is that it should say “doesn’t” instead of “don’t”.
I thought the same, but “don’t” is “do not” abbreviated, as in “I don’t go to school”. Whereas “doesn’t” would be the short form of “does not” as in “Beer drinking doesn’t give me a hangover”.
Your just the wrong.
What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. That should be the proper grammar my friend.
You people must listen to ***** music, if you’re confused. The tat quotes the lyrics from a Metallica song, which obviously/intentionally diverge from Nietzsche’s original. Hence the Metallica Death Magnetic logo also in the tattoo.
Also, if they could spell, they wouldn’t be stuck working as non-artistic tattoo artists, eh?
“What do not” ?
That’s not correct at all.
Strong…stronger…strongest. not more strong.
they’re lyrics from a metallica song.
It should be STRONGER. ^^ lol.
“IN the begining W.A.S. the WORD” is so frickin’ stupid in so many ways.
Or you’re just prejudiced.
Me fail English?
Tatoo artist’s are superiour in englisch.
those are not stoopid people (save that getting a tatoo is by essence stoopid)
it should be:
“why you souldn’t go to an illiterate tatoo artist”
Except that you always get a preview in non-permanent ink before they make it permanent.
Maybe the problem is the tattoo artists’ english skills.
I have a feeling these people “regert everything”
Don’t lie, they regert nothing because they are so exreme.
I can has cheezburger
MORONS on parade.
“Your my only hope” – your what?
Yep, the “what don’t kill you” one is from Metallica- Broken Beat Scarred. Also, the tat on the wrist is Metallica’s logo.
Cat’s would never do this, we are much more smart than to defile our bodies with this crap.
What is a cat’s would?
I didn see nohing like thees when I got my tato.
What don’t kill ya, make ya more strong. It’s a metallica lyric.
Great comment me, keep it up.
What doesn’t kill you may well leave you with a life-long disability.
An incident that leaves you a brain damaged quadriplegic, unable to tie a shoe lace or spell your own name, isn’t really making you much stronger. Really stupid saying and even stupider as a tattoo.
If it’s spelled wrong that’s the artist’s fault and they should offer to fix it free of charge, imho.
don’t you have to be stupid in the first place to get a tattoo?
