Technically I don’t think there should be an “and” in there, so “august thirtieth, two thousand twelve.” But if it’s for a tattoo I think either version is fine.

bebero:  Nope, just as I said it.

But as the PP said, you have it as ‘August Thirtieth, Two Thousand and Twelve’ or ‘August Thirtieth, Two Thousand Twelve’ either is acceptable.

See, in the UK we would say, “the Thirtieth of August, Two Thousand and Twelve.

Have they thought about doing in roman numerals?

Roman numerals would look good. And be a whole lot clearer and less huge than spelling it out in full which, as pps have said, in the UK would be Thirtieth of August, Two Thousand and Twelve. Here’s the conversion (date in day/month/year format as we use in the UK)

XXX.VIII.MMXII
