I had this tattoo done over 12 years ago when I served in the U.S. Navy. To be completely honest, I do not remember much about that night. Can you work your magic and decipher my tattoo?

Thank you,

Cher S.


Top character looks like with an extra dot, which means "to cut down", and is correct for "fortune".
