this is a tattoo? how about some originiality..


Explanation:
My humble suggestions:

紅天女 (kurenai ten-nyo) legendary, angelic goddess.

女神魅了 (megami miryou) I actually saw a Canadian girl with this tattoo once. It means something like "beautiful goddess with charming force"

愛の女神 (ai no megami) the goddess of love - Venus, Aphrodite

if you can't read these, let me know. I'll send it to you in a graphical format.

麗容女神


Explanation:
There are several “beautiful” in Japanese such as 美しい(utukushii)、優雅な(yuugana
)、麗しい(uruwashii)、麗容(reiyou)etc that comes with 女神=goddess.

I think the combination of terms is largely depend on your preference. However, my suggestions are:
麗容女神
麗女神
美しい女神

And, if you want to put some glossiness on goddess, then how about: 
美麗女神
