sever the ties
Ancoram solvo / solvo


Explanation:
Which means "I'm weighing anchor".
Since it has to be tattooed, you might just use: "solvo" which has the same meaning, along with the main one of "untie, sever".

"(Vos) valete, (ego) solvo" (You, keep safe, I'm making off!)

Forgot to write you can add a \"nunc\" (now), so to convey an immediate future meaning.

\"Valete, nunc (ancoram) solvo\"

or better, you can use a gerundive, to convey the idea of necessity

\"(Salvete atque) valete, nunc solvendum est\" (Stay keep, it\'s time to set sail!).

I stop here, too many ideas coming up!
