Hi! Looking for a translation for a tattoo meaning "no worries" or to be without worry. I've gotten several different responses so just looking to see what everyone on here thinks. Thank you!

In Ulster, you can say Fadhb ar bith. That's technically ungrammatical, because it's missing a verb in the negative, but it is used nonetheless, with the verb being understood.

no worries
1) in response to thanks
ná habair é
ná bac é sin

2) to tell sb not to worry
ná bíodh imní ort
nach cuma

3) to agree or accept sth
cinnte
togha
ceart go leor

What if you were looking to phrase it as "without anxiety?"

imní = anxiety
gan imní = without anxiety

Ná bíodh imní ort. = Don't worry! (lit. not be anxiety on you)
gan imní a bheith ort = (you) to be without worry (lit. without anxiety to be on you)

Please post the other options you've gotten. We can tell you if they work or not, and why. It's really never a good idea to "test" translators by withholding this information.

Ná bíodh imní ort. = Don’t worry (see above)

gan imní = without worry (see above)

Ná bac. = Don’t hinder.

Ná bac é. = Don’t mind him/it.

Ná bac leis. = Don’t mind him/it, Let him alone. Don’t have anything to do with him/it.

Ná bac leat. = Carry on! (...if you dare)

Ná bí buartha. = Don’t be sorrowful, sorry (lit. perturbed) ("Ná bith ..." is wrong.)

Editing to say that Labhrás got his response in just before mine.
The first two have been covered above. For the others:

Ná bac leis
Let it/him alone
Let/it him go

Ná bí buartha faoi
Don't worry about it (as in, "don't dwell on it" or "don't lament it").
