Beautiful Words That I Want Tattooed – Tattoo Wishlist P1

(That image is the positioning idea I have for a word or two)

There is no shortage in my brain of tattoo ideas. There is a noticeable shortage of other things such as intelligence, logical decision making and time-keeping skills – but the important stuff is up there.

Hello, you stunning creature, you.

Today’s post is a wonderful addition to my tattoo wishlist – I know; you’ve been hanging on to the edge of your seat, eagerly anticipating my tattoo ideas.

Words, for me, have always been something beautiful. I’m an avid writer; an avid reader. Words are my paintbrush; my canvas. Language and text is a sacred thing for me – so it goes almost without saying that I want some special words tattooed on me.

  1. Nefelibata

    I am a massive day-dreamer. I would argue that I spend half my life inside another life in my head doing all sorts of nonsensical shit. My dream afterlife (and partially what I think happens) is that we go into a dream-like state and our “heaven” is just whatever we dream up. I’m going to go on some wicked pirate adventures when I die.

  2. Sophrosyne

    Example: I will never reach the sophrosyne state of mind...
    This word is one of my all-time favourites – and probably the first one that I’ll get tattooed. For me, it’s the perfect summary of my life and how I aspire to live it; I don’t want anything other than a healthy state of mind, inner peace and to be living true to myself. All of my values – staying true to myself, enjoying everything in moderation (and it very much annoys one of my best friends that she can’t get me to get blackout drunk, or go totally crazy) but to the point that want to, and being happy – are represented within one word. And I want it.

  3. Eunoia

    WORD OF THE DAY: Eunoia is the shortest English word containing all five main vowel graphemes. It comes from the Greek word εὔνοια, meaning "well mind" or "beautiful thinking." It is also a rarely used medical term referring to a state of normal mental health.

    That’s the goal!

  4. Wabi-sabi

    Japanese word 侘び寂び wabi-sabiSource
    The acceptance of imperfection and of good and bad as a whole is an incredibly important concept for me. I have a line-art tattoo already dedicated to that exact premise!

  5. Strikhedonia

    Strikhedonia has been my favourite word for a few years (cue all my Twitter names and a few old Instagram handles) because it means the pleasure of saying to hell with it. There is basically a fancy word . . . for fuck it. Which is my life motto. I am so in.

  6. Meraki

    As bloggers and creators, I feel like all of us can relate to this word in some way. If you’re a creative spirit, you put your heart and soul into your work; everything you create is a part of you.

  7. Elysian

    pronunciation |  \el-‘E-zhan\ (el-EE-sian as in vision)                                    #elysian, english, adjective, finally an adjective, origin: greek, elysian fields, perfect, beautiful, creative, divine, inspiration, lovely, peace, words, other-wordly, otherwordly, definitions, E, personal favorites,
    Elysian is another word that my skin craves; I feel like elysian and orphic are two words that I want together. Both are beautiful and elusive – entrancing words that I want to describe my life. I want a beautiful and creative life. I want to be peaceful and inspired.

  8. Orphic

    or-fik - these little words help me to better my language.
    I aim to be orphic.

  9. Raison d’être

    otherwordly ❤ liked on Polyvore featuring words, text, quotes, definitions, fillers, phrases, doodle, saying and scribble
    Part of me wants to wait until I find a reason to live and I discover my “purpose” and get this as an affirmation tattoo – but part of me wants to get this as a reminder that my reason for living and my purpose is just to live. To be happy, to find peace, to live the life that I want. 

  10. Abditory

    Anyone that knows me knows that I need one of these. I have little “hiding places” that I retreat to everywhere. Whenever I travel, I always end up finding a secluded little spot that I can just sit and rest in when I want a break from everyone else. A personal favourite of mine is always the rocks by the sea.

  11. Querencia

    My all-time favorite word in Spanish -- the very definition of home and for me, San Miguel de Allende.

    This word is absolutely beautiful. I want it as a reminder that my home and where I draw my strength from is a place inside me.

  12. Recherche

    Another word that describes my mindset perfectly; I am (with important things in my life) a very picky person. Selective may be a better word – I am very careful with who and what I choose to let in to my life.

  13. Selcouth

    Selcouth #WordPorn
    Well, if this doesn’t describe me I don’t know what does.

  14. Quaintrelle

    quaintrelle (n.) - a woman who emphasizes a life of passion, expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life's pleasures
    This woman . . . will be me.

  15. Caim


As you can probably tell from these words, the things that I value in life are probably a lot more reserved than other people – I know they are compared to my friends! My aspirations are for creativity and happiness, calmness and serenity. I want to lead a small life of peace and comfort. Full of love, surrounded by family and just . . . enjoyable. Preferably with some sun in there!

I hope you enjoyed this post; what do you think of these words? Are there any words that you would get tattooed? Let me know your thoughts you gorgeous human beings! (Sidenote: I just wrote up and took OOTD pictures for an awards post! That’ll be up Sunday.)

  1. Not sure how this is the first time I’m hearing of the word Nefelibata because wow that word describes me so well haha I’m pretty sure over half my day is spent day dreaming about the most random things!

    I feel like I haven’t heard any of these words before but wow they’re certainly words I won’t forget!


            1. Woah I love all of these! 😀
              I just have one tattoo. Getting inked on the inside of my wrist hurt less than getting a Brazilian wax, FYI.
              That said, it’s important to get something that you LOVE. I have the cross of confusion on my wrist because Devildriver is my favorite band but the cross means to question absolutely everything, which has been my life motto since I was a kid.

              1. Me too! Also, in regards to tattoo pain, I was pleasantly surprised with how little the back of the leg hurt. And oooh that’s a lovely tattoo; is there a photo of it anywhere on your blog?

                1. I just went through all my posts and no I haven’t, omg. It’s elusive with how I hold my arms! 😂😂😂 maybe I should just do a post about tatts and how to make them luxe and classy in the future. 😁 *excited*

                    1. That is a lot of words to be considered for tattoos! You are a brave one. But they are lovely. I knew just two – Wabi-Sabi and Elysian. Along with them, I heart Strikhedonia. xx

                      1. I know – I think I’ll allow myself 2 and just be very, very selective ….or I could walk around looking like a novel (although I DID always want to be a book character). Strikhedonia is an amazing word – you have great taste! 😉 xx

                        1. Hah, I will take that confirmation with a great goofy grin. FYI you are a book character if you want to be. We have just got to fish out a cool name for ya. xx

                      2. I am so in love with all of these words. They’d make beautiful tattoos – and that placement is gorgeous. One day, I think I’d like the outline of a wave … the ocean is such a huge part of my life, I want to carry it everywhere I go. Adore your blog so much, just followed and excited to read more!
                        Abby – x

                        1. They are some cool words! 😉 I love that idea; meaningful tattoos are beautiful little milestones. Plus sea tattoos are crazily cute! If you want any inspo, I have an insane amount of tattoo ideas saved – and a few sea related ones! (Is there a way to become a drug dealer but of tattoos because I’d be all over that) Thank you so much for the complement lovely – can’t wait to check your blog out!💜
