A friend of mine decided to get a tattoo this weekend. Moreso, he decided to get it in Latin.. without asking anyone for some help with proper translations or anything!

So, in the hope of making sure he hasn't made a terrible, terrible mistake, could someone let me know if his decision to get 'neutiquam erro' tattooed in fancy letters on his arm was at least grammatically correct, if not in generally poor taste?

Thanks in advance!

Agreed. Granted that native speakers of Latin are somewhat thin on the ground these days... but one should at least attempt to cover one's bases by double-checking the text of the tattoo with one's friendly local classics department to avoid embarrassment later in life.

Because such embarrassment can turn out to be... considerable. :)
