I am thinking about getting a tattoo with my favorite quote in Japanese. Would someone be kind enough to translate this into Japanese for me please?

"You are free to sever the chains of fate that bind you..."

Arigatou,
Andrew

*EDIT*
This is from the PlayStation game "Legend of Dragoon".

I think that is ...
"あなたを縛る運命の鎖をあなたは断ち切ることができる".

But this is a literal translation. I looked for Dragoon'ssite in Japan. But I can not found an apt remark...

that is too long, is there a short version of the word fate?

Fate is 運命(Unmei) in Japanese.
An example, "Sever the chains of fate that bind you!" is "Kimi wo Shibaru Unmei no Kusari wo Tachikire!". "君を縛る運命の鎖を断ち切れ!".
"Sever the chains of fate" is "Unmei no Kusari wo Tachikire!". "運命の鎖を断ち切れ!".
