Tattoo I have please help  
by spacecadet1989, 2015-04-16, 03:45  Spam?  24.68.192....
I have a tattoo that I got in Danish that I had my Danish grandfather translate for me he hasn't spoken Danish much in the last 30 years so he may have missed translated it I don't really care tremendously if it's mistranslated because the whole point was just to have him do it But I am curious though how close it is the phrase is written in Danish on my arm but it is supposed to mean "if life seems under control you're not going fast enough"

It says "hvis livet synes under kontrol, du ikke ga hurting noch.
(I may have messed the spelling up on a letter or two) and the a in ga has a circle above it.

The first part "hvis livet synes under kontrol" is a good translation, and it sounds poetic.  
The second part has the same meaning as in English, and the spelling would be: "du ikke gå hurtigt nok". The English word order seems to have influenced the translation, because in the Danish of today you would say "går du ikke hurtigt nok".

So the meaning is the same, and it's a sweet story.
