I would greatly appreciate if someone could please tell me what the sanskrit symbol त्रि means? Many thanks!

It means three in Sanskrit.

I appreciate your response. I, too, thought this translated to the word "three" and have this tattoo. However, I had a person in a store that claimed to read Sanskrit tell me it did not exactly translate that way. It was hard for me to understand what he was saying exactly -- but he implied it was meaningless without further context. Does this make sense to you?

I'm not very familiar with Sanskrit so I'm not so sure. Maybe it has a religious meaning or is a mantra?

AFAIK, त्रि in Sanskrit is a prefix, not an independent word, so it's more like "tri-" in English than like "three." :)
