Never a failure, always a lesson

I've been thinking about taking a new tattoo now for some time, therefore I'm super attentive to all tattoo-related-news that I hear. Today I heard about Rihanna's newest tattoo, a mirrowed text that says "Never a failure, always a lesson". She has placed above her left breast. I thought the idea was nice with having something mirrowed but I'm not sure yet if I would was a picture or a text. After all, with text there's always the problem with choosing in what language to write the text. Since English isn't my mother tongue, wouldn't it be strange to tattoo something on me in that? Pictures after all are global and cross country and language barriers.

What's your opinion?
