Hi Gary,

How are you travelling, hope all is well for you. You previously helped me I sent a picture of a blurred tattoo that my brother had on him before he passed away and I thank you very much for you reply & providing me with my brother translation of tattoo. I now have his tattoo on my left hand so his with me, can thank you enough.

It's my birthday this Friday since my brother passed away 4 years now I've been following Buddha teachings & met Monks & would like to get myself another tattoo, could you please provide your expert advise on the writing of this saying in Chinese before I get it done.

May Buddha Bless You.

Look forward to you reply, thank you very much.Marcelo

There are a lot of related titles:

However, what you probably want is the greeting exchanged by Chinese Buddists (versions of the same-sounding phrase are also used in Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, etc)...

阿彌陀佛

Sounds a bit like "Ah Me Toah Foah". If you've been to a Buddhist temple, you've heard a version of this phrase.
