The thing is that the tattoo I'm asking about would mean so much to me and yes, I'm sure that after 20 or 30 years I'd look at it and wouldn't regret having it done the slightest bit. Anyway, thank you for your reply, I get what you're trying to say.
    Then let us see the result once you've had it done!
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    The funny thing is that.. I love reading grammar books during my free time. That's crazy, I know :D I've been doing that since I was a kid. In fact, this is one of the reasons why I want to get such kind of tattoo.

    It is correct, but it sounds weird to me. I wouldn't write it, much less have it as a tattoo.

    It's not that unusual. I know several people who love learning foreign languages and spend most of their free time studying.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Actually, it sounds weird to everyone. However, it has the kind of meaning which I'd be the only one to completely understand. :) But thanks anyway!
