Tattoo english to Latin

Reply Wed 10 Oct, 2018 10:32 am
Hey there, I need your help!
Myself and some friends want to get a tattoo together in Latin. We were thinking about “you were there, you are now, you ll always be” , which we translated into “ Adestis, Aderatis, Aderitis” . Would that make any sense to you?
Thank you in advance, any help would be very much appreciated

Nice work!

Your translation literally means "You are present, you were present, you will
be present". The "you" in each case is plural. I notice that the English you
started with was in the order of past, present and future. If you want your
translation in the same order, it should be:
Aderatis, Adestis, Aderitis
