For those who want to know what the tattoo (in words) that Irina has on her leg means.
It is a famous phrase by Caio Valerio Catullo, a writer and poet of ancient Rome (20-50 BC)
This phrase is part of the script I carry here in Latin.

Iocundum, mea vita, mihi proponis amorem,
   Hunc nostrum inter nos perpetuumque fore.
Di magni, facite ut vere promittere possit,
   Atque id sincere dicat et ex animo,
Ut liceat nobis tota perducere vita
   Aeternum hoc sanctae foedus amicitiae.

This is the phrase of the tattoo

Aeternum hoc sanctae foedus amicitiae.

Here is the translation.
Promise me, my life, that
    This love of ours will be happy and eternal.
Or venerables, do that which can promise with truth,
    And say this sincerely and from the depths of the mind,
So that it is possible for us to continue throughout our lives,
    This eternal friendship pact.
