I have finally found the text for my next tattoo! It's Sanskrit, the first line of the Anusara Invocation, which is chanted before our yoga classes. It's pronounced "Om namah Shivayah gurave" It doesn't have a direct translation, but a very rough approximation would be "Salutations to that which I am capable of becoming". It's very beautiful, and means a lot to me. This is a shot of my computer screen, and the Devanagari text it has given me. I may look for a little more stylized version, but hope to get my tattoo (most likely as a band round my right upper arm) very soon.
