I don't mind converting Sanskrit words into Devanagari script for you. However, writing English in Devanagari is not exactly my piece of cake, especially if you intend to tattoo it somewhere.

I already discussed this with him by email, as he asked me about this by private message the other day.

I would rather see him get a tatto of something more theological, like maybe Jaya Sri Radhe or even the symbol for aum, in Devanagari, as long as he is determined to keep on painting things on his skin. He has a couple of tattoos already.

I actually considered becoming a tattoo artist myself a few years ago, as long as the young kids are so hot for them. Then I found out that it takes a long time to learn about the anatomy of the skin, because it is not just a matter of drawing some lines in ink and then zapping them with that needle contraption. There is a serious risk of injury to the epidermis in the hands of an unqualified person. It is very lucrative, though. Maybe some day I will design some temporary tattoos with Vaishnava themes. Those just wash off and can't cause anyone any harm or allergic reaction to the ink.

muktAtma might be a way to go.

Or better even, mukunda, the one who frees the spirits.

I'm sure most of you read the story about David Beckman who had his wife's name tattooed in Devanagari, and it turns out someone misspelled it for him. So all of you about to tattoo something, better double check what you're about to tattoo on yourself.
