I'm hoping to get a Gaelic tattoo and I have a few phrases in mind as options that I need translated:

1. There is a strong woman within me
2. With pain comes strength
3. Strong woman
4. Wild Irish Rose
5. Strength

Thanks in advance :)

1. There is a strong woman within me
Tá bean láidir [istigh] ionam
The istigh part is not crucial, if space is at a premium, but sounds more natural,


2. With pain comes strength
Is leis an phian a thagann an neart
Corrected as indicated below


3. Strong woman
These could all work, with maybe the shades of meaning indicated:
bean láidir [strong woman]
bean neartmhar [powerful woman]
bean thréan [mighty woman]


4. Wild Irish Rose
rós fiáin Éireannach

5. Strength
neart

2. With pain comes strength
Leis an phian tagann an neart

(Is) leis an phian a thagann an neart
A relative clause is necessary here.
