Hey, Is anyone on here from The Netherlands?

I'm drawing up a tattoo for a mate and he wants something written in Dutch; "Excel at Existance". I don't want to write something that doesn't make sense though.

Anyone up to the task of a little translation?

Thanks

How about:
Zak patat!

Hahaha...no serieus.

"Excel at Existance" is that an expression or something?
Translated I believe you say:
- Uitblinken in het bestaan. But like this it makes no sense in Dutch. Not to me anyway.
I'll go and look it up on the internet.
Maybe you could discribe what it means so the Dutch here can make up a proper transation.
Your mate would'nt like to walk around with a "Zak pata" on his arm I think.

Yeah it's an expression I guess. Its like Be really good at Existing. Or Be Excellent at Existing.

My Dutch is really poor so the best I could think of would be like;
Slaag Bij Bestaan or Uitmuntend in Bestaan.

Then I thought of Overtreffend in Bestaan, but I didn't think that would be great if someone translated it for him.

Thanks for you help so far man!
