Need help from the Greek speakers
« on: May 20, 2004, 03:12:29 PM »
One of my secular friends who is interested in tattoos asked me if I know what the text on these say.  I have no idea.

They aren't Greek words. I suspect Latin written in Greek phonetics, the second word being SANCTIS

not Greek -- i agree, i think it looks more like latin written with Greek script.

Yah... reminds me of the tattoos the main characters had in the movie The Boondock Saints.
