so far so good

Literary Tattoos: La Haine Literary Tattoos: La Haine

This tattoo belongs to ttang.

My tattoo is from the french movie La Haine.

It actually says: “So far so good”, but the real quote is much longer: “This is the story of a man falling from a building fifty stories. The guy, in its fall repeats constantly for reassurance: so far so good, so far so good, so far so good.But the important thing is not falling, it’s landing.”

I got it before Christmas last year, many people have asked me why I did it, and I never know how to answer that. It’s just a particular attraction I found in this lines, when I saw the film I was totally captivated by it. This is the phrase that stayed in my mind for a very long time, and I constantly repeated it when something was wrong, the strength lies upon the landing.
