    Hi people, I'm looking to have this sentence translated into Latin "I just want to
    Have a bloody good time!" if there is anyone out there that does I'd much appreciate it, many thanks.
    ut simpliciter in Saliarem modum epuler
    = I wish merely to feast sumptuously (literally - "oh that I might simply feast in the style of the Persians!")

    (bonus points there for the optative subjunctive :p)

    But that might be a bit prolix for a tattoo in which case you might go with nunc est epulandum (riffing on Horace - "now it's time to party") - or aveo comissori ("I long to engage in drunken revels")
