I am just starting to learn ancient greek, was wondering if anyone could translate something for me.  I don't even know how to type in greek characters really so I will just say the names of the letters.  pi - omicron - nu - omicron (long vowel) - zeta

Hello and welcome to Translatum.

You can use the English > Ancient Greek forum. Actually, I am going to move this question to the correct forum.

Are you sure that the last letter is zeta?

Actually now that you say something it was a sigma symbol, I am just starting lessons with a book called "Greek: an intensive course" and noticed someone had a tattoo with it and I could figure out all of the letters but one, of course I couldn't translate because I am just starting.  So its Pi-omicron-nu-omicron-sigma

Well, the word is πόνος, i.e. pain.

I might have switched the long vowel in my head to the wrong letter, so you are probably right on the translation. 

I am really glad this forum exists and is active, hopefully when I am done with my studies I can help others out.  Thanks a lot for your help.
