Latin to English translation for tattoo

Reply Thu 25 Jan, 2018 07:49 pm
Hi! I'm planning on getting a tattoo in Latin, I've gotten the translation from some people who are pretty well versed with the Latin language but I just wanted to double check on some other sites whether this is accurate or not. The quote is 'Fortune favours the brave and the brave make their own fortune.' The translations I've got are:
Audentes Fortuna iuvat, audentes Fortunam faciunt
Audentes fortuna iuvat fortes fortunam faciunt

Both are accurate. I'd prefer the first as audentes is used in both clauses.
