Does this seem right? I thought it was an int...

Re: Need help translating something short

Woudln't "Ne umquam" be the same as "Nun(m)quam" ?

I do understand this isn't a "free translation" type site however since a tattoo is permanent for the most part I'm trying to make sure it's the correct way. I'm trying to say exactly " Never Forgive " not with an "I" in...
