I think you mean translate into romaji, or katakana, as there most likely isn't kanji for a foreign name.

I think it would be: ABURIRU

The kanji you will come up with will probably not be legible or have much meaning to a native speaker, but if you just want something to look interesting, I'll try and come up with some options though it will take some time. The result won't be really Japanese, nor Chinese, nor anything really, but I hope you enjoy it!

Thing is, if the encoding of the characters on the site is off, you will get a buch of nonsense. Just be warned...

Very hard to come up with something flattering. As this is a phonetic transcription and proably not at all accurate, do not tattoo this on anything!

A - BURI ィC RU
A (actually aa) ィC ー「 roughly meaning flatter or to fawn.
BURI ィC 。。yellowtail, a type of fish, quite tasty really.
RU ィC 贋。。frequently, so。ュ
ー「贋。。or frequently flattering yellowtail

just tell them it means "unyielding tempest god(dess)"

OR you can go with katakana, as most foreign words are written, which will be understandable and not as odd (see the last line of script in the image

attached file is an image file so it should be accurate
