This sort of makes sense, thanks. On the second sentence, you say the answer should be ~ない because と follows it, but our book says the answer is ならず. We looked again for the answer, and it does look like you are right. Thanks!

We've also found What is the difference between 〜ないではいられない and 〜ずにはいられない, but it didn't quite explain it.

Do you suppose it could mean "Abiding faith"? The source may be a Hebrew word that is hard to translate - it's a combination of Abiding and Burning. I like this answer. I'm not sure about Chinese though - "fire letter" doesn't make much sense either :)

Hmm... less likely, but also interesting. - it was written from the top down: 火 above 信.

Thank you, that is a very interesting answer. The gentleman in question certainly wasn't Japanese, I think he spoke Russian (I live in Israel, by the way). My wife studies Japanese as a hobby, and was quick enough to memorize the tattoo. You raise a good point: her guess was also similar to "burning faith" based on the two kanjis. So, basically, if people recognize it as a word and are able to understand its meaning - it is a word.
