I am asking for help in having two quotes translated for tattoos as well as the pronunciation of each. If you have a suggestion of font to use as well, please include that. The quotes I am looking at are the following;

"God did not save me to tame me, arise lioness!"

"Warrior daughter of God"

If you would be willing to help me, I would greatly appreciate your time and effort in helping me with this beautiful language.

Níor shábháil Dia mé chun mise a cheansú,
God did not save me to tame me,
éirigh a leoin bainnean!
arise lioness!

The second one is ambiguous in English. It could mean that she's:
-- a "warrior, [and a] daughter of God", or
-- a "warrior daughter" of God

They could be different in Irish, although there might be a change in meaning making the second one below different from what you want:

Gaiscíoch, iníon Dé
Warrior, [and a] daughter of God

Iníon ghaisciúil Dé
"warrior daughter" of God
In this case, the adjective could be read as meaning "valiant" or "warlike", rather than "warrior-ish"

Thank you! I believe the first, a "warrior, (and a) daughter of God" is what I'm looking for.

Were those two lines taken from anywhere specific, Linked? I'm just curious.

The "God did not save me to tame me..." was from Lisa Bevere's "Lioness Arising". The other is not from anywhere specific.
