Tattoo help?

I was directed here by way of bmezine.

How would one say "I love my daughter" in any Asian language?
It's for my mom's first tattoo.
(I realize the intricacies of technique with reference to proper character formation, and the potential mistake of getting a tattoo in a language one does not understand. But she's my mother, and stubborn, and I'd like to get it as close as possible for her.)

Please include proper placement of characters, as well.

Thank you!

ETA: You've all been so helpful, thanks for your suggestions!
