my girlfriend loves Victorias Tattoo and i have read all comments and the meaning of her Tattoo. But i have nbo clue, how to tattoo it. The words above and the tattoo are optical different. How should i tattoo it? :( have someone an artwork or someting like this for me please?

Thank you so much


Dear Friends:
I have a favor to ask from you.
One of my dearest friends lost her sister a few months ago... as an homage, she wishes to get a tatto of her name, and my friend Victoria's sister, Kathya (RIP) loved hebrew letters. She must have had the Hai symbol on a half a dozen charms and little jewels.
Long Story short, we translated her name in a very literal manner:
K Kaph
A Aleph
T Tau
H Heh
Y Yod
A Aleph
We know that Aleph is supposed to be silent, but as you may understand, we don't want to get it wrong... It goes on her body permanently as a remembrance of someone we all loved... There is not a very big Jewish community where we live, here in Honduras, Central America... this is why we are asking for your help... we wish to write her name in proper hebrew... we would be forever in your debt.
Thank you,
J.C. Hernandez.


Well, lets start from the fact that Katya is an eastern European name most probably originated in Russia. Therefore, eitehr way you translate it to Hebrew, will most likely be good. The way I would do it personally is


Thats about it, and I'm not sure that the ALEF is a nesessity.

Good luck with whatever you do.

Thank you.


I can see how many individuals have messaged you over and over again regarding translation. Though I hope you can translate one word for me. I have gone through many ordeals through my life and the one trait about myself that still remains intact is my passion. I am passionate about life and what it continue to care for those who need it most. I do aspire to obtain a tattoo to remind me of such things. So if you can, would you translate the word "Passion" or "Passionate"? for me? I would like to have it vertical as well if possible. Thank-you for your time.
