I'm getting a tattoo of song lyrics and I don't want to screw up the punctuation. The phrase is:

"No one is invincible
No one is immortal
These are the rules"

I feel like the safest bet would be a period between each. However, I think a comma between the first two lines, and then maybe a colon, semicolon, or dash between the latter two lines conveys the meaning better. I just don't know what that punctuation would be.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • How much would you mind moving that Question at least to somewhere like English Language Leaners and preferably somewhere concentrating on punctuation? If this is a tattoo of song lyrics then why does it need special punctuation, distinct from most poetry or prose, please? – Robbie Goodwin Dec 17 '17 at 0:11
