Cast Tattoos in LotR Can't Post

So I know that the cast of the LotR who were members of the fellowship all got tattoos in Elvish script that translates to "nine". I have two close friends and we were thinking about doing the same, but with "three". So I try to find a proper translation, but any site I use, I check "nine" first and it doesn't match the tattoo the cast got. Any thoughts on what I should do? Even though it's a fictional language, I would like to get it right.

This is a great site for doing translations. I've attached a picture with the Fellowship nine that is very close to the cast's tattoos, but without the accent marks. The second image is the number 3... both in Quenya.
When you go to the site, so to the box in the middle of the page and click on the bullet for PNG, then go to the dropdown box just above it and pick the translation format you want to use. It's fun to try all of those available :)
Good luck!
