Hi, maybe Throid mé agus bhuainn, though wait for further opinions since it's for a tattoo.

I think you're mixing up two different tenses there . . . the simple past would be throid mé agus bhuaigh mé, or the imperfect would be throidinn agus bhuainn. That is, if either of those is the proper expression . . . :?
