I am of Irish heritage and I want to get a tattoo as a reminder to myself of a very important quote for me.
I want to have " I Myself Am Enough" but would like to have it in Irish. I just need to get a correct translation so that I honor my heritage. Is there a certain Celtic Braid/knot that would be appropriate as part of this design? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
