Carpe Diem Temporary Tattoo - Set of 3
Set of three 'carpe diem' temporary tattoos.
When it comes to Latin phrases, ‘carpe diem’ is one of the most well-known and frequently used ones. As such, it’s not a surprise that our ‘carpe diem’ temporary tattoo is a top seller among our Latin quote fake tattoos. While it can be literally interpreted to mean “seize the day,” the actual meaning is a bit more nuanced.
This phrase was made famous nearly 2,000 years ago by the Roman poet Horace when he wrote “carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.” This is interpreted to mean “seize the day, put little trust in tomorrow.” It is meant to remind us that we must make the most of each day because we do not know what tomorrow will bring, for better or for worse.
The word carpe can also mean “pluck” or “pick” and was used to describe the action of picking ripe fruit. In this way, Horace may have been reminding us that today is ripe for the picking. Today is the best day to act and we should not wait to see if tomorrow is better or riper.
If this is a phrase you live by, you might consider getting it inked on your skin. If so, our ‘carpe diem’ temporary tattoo is the perfect way to try before you buy. It comes in a set of three, so it’s ideal for experimenting with placements or sharing with a friend. Designed using a fine handwritten script, this sticker tattoo will add a touch of elegance anywhere you decide to place it.
