I'm working on incorporating on of his poems, in the Persian calligraphy, into my chest piece. Where did you get this translation?? Is it from a book? Any help would be much appreciated...

Finally got the ink! Here's my Rumi poem... [link] It says "don't get lost in your pain, for one day your pain will be your cure."

Nice, I take it that the tattoo is positioned so it all moves evenly with your shoulderblade. I've been working on a usable version of Rumi's 'Only Breath' for a tattoo for the last couple of months, I'm glad I'm not the only one to appreciate his work in that way.
