I want to get "Adjust your sails." as a tattoo, I study Spanish but I can't decide if I should use the infinitive or use it as a command.
Should it say "Ajustar sus velas" or "Ajuste sus velas" or something different?

Any help you could give me would be great! Thank you!

Consider the whole quote: "When you can´t change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails" (Cuando no puedas cambiar la dirección del viento, ajusta tus velas) So I think "Ajusta tus velas" (advice or recommendation) could be the most suitable.
