I was looking for some tattoos that greek sailors would get in order to appease poseidon; mainly words or phrases.

Last time I was in the merchant navy (is my tongue showing in my cheek?), they went for the usual anchor tattoo or the odd 'γοργόνα' (mermaid). I don't know of any words or phrases they may favour, other than the names of the women waiting for them at different ports of call.
