Duolingo is telling people what their foreign tattoos really mean
Did you ever get a tattoo of a foreign language? Perhaps a reminder of a holiday when you were younger? But, do you know what it actually means? Duolingo is helping people find out the meaning of their tattoos.
To celebrate World Tattoo Day, the leading translation and language app Duolingo wanted to make sure people got the tattoo they think they got.
When using the hashtag #TattooDuoOver, people were encouraged to post their tattoos. What deep meaning did it actually have? Did it say “this too shall pass”, or did it say something a little less deep?
If you’ve been punk’d by a tattoo artist in Kho Phangan or the back streets of Paris, Duolingo will reward you for your, ahem, bravery.
The app is rewarding those who have had a mishap with ink. The “winners” will get either a new tattoo, or a month’s free of the app’s premium feature.
In the meantime, when was the last time someone translated your holiday ink?
