No vowels would be just fine. It can be either way, but considering it's a tatoo, I'd do it w/o vowels.
FYI, vowels were introduced a bit later in the language (around 600) ....but not using vowels is a common practice.
I agree ragman. Having no vowels in it would be more authentic.
I never use vowels when writing in Hebrew . . . of course, i can't write in Hebrew . . . but that's beside the point . . .
I have been told those vowels are for grade school Israelis, or Jewish kids practicing for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. As adults, Jewish Israelis read without the vowels, sort of like the old speedwriting that people used to learn instead of standard shorthand.
I think Setanta just admitted to having had a vowel movement.
