New tattoo

So I decided its time for a new tattoo and I LOVE this lyric...I'm trying to find a great font to write it in...I want something that looks like old script, any ideas? Maybe like a old ink well pen...hmmmm

And I want to get this going down side


Alegria
Come un lampo di vita
Alegria
Come un pazzo gridare
Alegria
Del delittuoso grido
Bella ruggente pena,
Seren
Come la rabbia di amar
Alegria
Come un assalto di gioia


Translation:

Alegria
I see a spark of life shining
Alegria
I hear a young minstrel sing
Alegria
Beautiful roaring scream
Of joy and sorrow,
So extreme
There is a love in me raging
Alegria
A joyous,
Magical feeling

...

Update I found the font I want and here is a preview of the font...thoughts?

Proud of my geek flag

Ok...So I have alittle secret...I a HUGE X-files fan. I love Sci-Fi twisty stuff like that...plus it doesnt hurt that David Duchovny is fucking adorable...

I know I'm a geek...don't judge me...

But the reason I say this is becasue a freind of mine is giving me her entire X-Files series on DVD because she is moving and is trying to get read of alot of things that she doesnt need/want/watch...

I am rather excited over this...

And after watching a few of them last night I have to ask the all im portant question...
