      Hmm…it does sound like a quote that sounds more like it is intended for girls. If you really like it though, I do not see why you cannot get it. What exactly were you thinking of getting in a tattoo? Did you just want a tattoo that related to being a fighter? Or to overcoming obstacles and tragedies? Before you get a tattoo, I would recommend waiting at least a couple of weeks to make sure that it is really the one you want. A tattoo is forever, so make sure to think it over thoroughly so that you have a tattoo that you really love! Good luck, Toby!
