Spitzer's hooker girlfriend, "Kristen" now revealed to be Ashley Alexandra Dupre, has a belly tattoo that reads "tutela valui", a Latin phrase which has been translated to mean "fair value" by the NY Post. But the tattoo may have even more relevance for the Emperor's Club VIP escort.
valui = 1st person singular, perfect indicative active of "valere" (to be healthy/well/strong)
tutela = nominative or ablative singular of "tutela" (guardianship or protector, as context dictates)
Thus, if tutela is indeed ablative, the sentence could be tranlated:
"I have been well thanks to/because of/by means of my protector."
Remember that when Ashley was asked by Spitzer to do things that might not be "safe", she replied, "I have a way of dealing with that..I'd be like listen dude, you really want the sex?...You know what I mean."
We know what you mean now.
