I think your going about this all wrong. Go to your local Greek town social club and ask a Greek the correct spelling. Where you going to ask a Greek to do the tattoo?

kirie = Lord Iesu = Jesus christos = christ eleuse = free/liberate..something like that. me = me Kupie Isu Xristws... don't take that verbatim...i'm just trying to sound it out... i speak, read and write modern greek, but it comes out fuct using english alphabet... have a priest do it... period... they use the ancient dialect on icons and what not. on a side note, i think an orthodox icon tattooo woudl look nice, and unique.

free hand the font after you confirm the spelling. I have an ancient greek tattoo on my back. I had a priest write it out for me, then took the free hand to my artist and had it done across the top of my back. it says: "to agapon paschein estin" although written in english it is a bit wack, it means "to love is to suffer"
