When wanting to get a tattoo in the form of an inscription, most people wonder what language their favorite saying will be written in. A great option for a tattoo inscription could be French.

French is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, with around 350 million people speaking it as a native or second language. This language is very beautiful in pronunciation and unusual in spelling, it has managed to conquer many countries. The geography of spread of French is striking (besides France, Belgium and Switzerland, French is spoken in Canada, Haiti and a number of African countries).

This language is also spoken in Russia. At one time, the Russian nobility used French to communicate more often than Russian, the popularity of the language in Russia dropped only in the early 19th century, when the war with Napoleon broke out.

Phrases in French for tattoos are not yet as popular as in Latin or English, but this language also has its connoisseurs. This language is preferred by people with a special outlook on the world. This spiritualized individuals, romantic and vulnerable, sometimes naive and careless, dreamers, poets, travelers and artists.

Did you know. Until the 18th century, there was no coherent French language, it was just separate dialects in different areas of France. The unification of the language into a unified linguistic system was helped by Charles Pierrot's tales, popular and read at the time in all corners of the state.

Themes and meanings of inscriptions in French

French was spoken by many great rulers and revolutionaries, philosophers, famous artists, as well as by playwrights and world-renowned writers. For example, Victor Hugo, in his work called Les Miserables, wrote the longest sentence in the world. It consists of more than 850 words.

That is why the French language is considered beautiful and attracts people's attention. Some of them like the sound of French words so much that they are willing to immortalize on their bodies phrases meaningful to them, translated into French. Besides, there have been many famous Frenchmen in history who have uttered beautiful aphorisms and quotations with a special meaning.

Beautiful French phrases for tattoos girls, guys

Someone likes Hugo's sensual sayings about love, and someone likes the funny aphorisms of Coco Chanel. The simple thoughts about life that Jacques - Yves Cousteau uttered, or excerpts from Napoleon's public sayings motivate many people. They make these phrases the slogans and mottos of their lives. That's why tattoos in French are so popular.

History of the origin of a few words

The well-known word "marmalade" is a twist on "Marie est malade" - Marie is sick.

In the Middle Ages, Queen Mary Stuart of Scotland suffered from seasickness during her travels and refused to eat. Her personal physician prescribed her slices of oranges with the peel densely sprinkled with sugar, while a French chef prepared decoctions of quinces to stimulate her appetite. If these two dishes were ordered in the kitchen, it was immediately whispered among the courtiers, "Marie sore!" (mari e malad).

Chantrapas, a word for loafers, waifs, also came from France. Children who had no musical ear or good vocal skills were not taken into the church choir as singers ("chantra pas" - no singing), so they hung around the streets doing nothing, begging and amusing themselves. They were asked, "Why are you idling?" The answer was, "Chantrap."

Chauffe - (chauffe - heating, heater) with the prefix sub-, that is, heated, under the influence of heat, taken to "warm up." A beautiful French word, but the meaning is just the opposite.

By the way, why was that name of the famous old lady Shapoklyak? But it is a French name, and her purse is also from there - rédicule. Chapot translates as "hat", and "clack" is a palm strike, akin to a slap. A flip-flop hat is a folding cylinder, which is what the mean old lady wore.

Silhouette is the name of the Comptroller of the Treasury at the court of Louis the Fifteenth, who was famous for his craving for luxury and varied spending. The treasury emptied too quickly and, to remedy the situation, the king appointed a young incorruptible Etienne Silhouette to the post, who immediately banned all festivities, balls and feasts. Everything became gray and dull, and the fashion that arose during the same time of depicting the outline of a dark-colored object on a white background - in honor of the scruffy minister.

Location on the body

Usually, people choose the location of the tattoo on the body, based on its meaning and size. If a French phrase is a talisman and has some sacred meaning, then such a tattoo is done in those places, which will be hidden from the eyes of other people.

  • Under the breasts;
  • between the fingers;
  • at the back of the head;
  • behind the ear;
  • on the hips;
  • on the lower back;
  • on the back.

Tattoo bracelet

Tattoo inscriptions in the form of a girdle girls usually put on the wrist. Such a naked picture emphasizes the elegance of the female image, visually makes this part of the hand slimmer and is a kind of message addressed to the people around.

The advantages of this type of tattoo include:

  • the opportunity to decorate your body, saving on the purchase of jewelry;
  • A bright way of self-expression;
  • The possibility of interpreting a tattoo bracelet as a talisman for its owner;
  • Ability to hide skin defects on the hands;
  • If necessary, such a bracelet can be hidden under a watch or bulk jewelry.

In making the final decision on the need to score a tattoo bracelet, a girl should study the disadvantages of the inscription, placed in the way under consideration:

  • excessive trauma to the skin (on the wrist the skin is the thinnest and most sensitive); Tattoo inscription on the hand in girls is well combined with a bracelet
  • A high degree of painfulness of the procedure for creating such a naked pattern.
