    It may say, "In case of choking, strike here." But my Sanskrit is a bit rusty.

    Anyway, greetings and salutations. I hope you enjoy the forum.

    It doesn't look like Sanskrit.

    Also, hello :)

    I agree. In fact I'd say it's definitely not Sanskrit.

    It's just a guess, but it looks like drutsa, a calligraphic Tibetan script that's apparently become popular for tattoos. No, I can't read it.

    I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you what it's not... Sanskrit.

    This is Sanskrit जयनारायण - Jayanārāyaṇa, the actual spelling and pronunciation of my name.

    हरे कृष्ण हरे राम Hare Krishna Hare Rāma.

    Big difference in the script from that in the picture. ;)

    This is not sanskrit.

    I hope you have not been duped by someone claiming it to be sanskrit. Do be careful.:sweat:

    I don't think it's Sanskrit
    Sanskrit is something like that
    "सः कुत्रत्य"
    That means "Where is he?"
