I have a basic translation, “Novus Initium”, but it is for a tattoo so I need a very accurate translation.
“Novus initium” is male genre adjective and neutre genre substantive. It is not correct. Also, you have ‘beginnings’ in plural. Both ‘novus’ and ‘initium’ are in singular. Here are some translations, each in singular and plural:
initium – a beginning, commencement (also:a going in, entrance
sg. initium novum
pl. initia nova
inceptio – a beginning, undertaking
sg. inceptio nova
pl. inceptiones novae
principium – a beginning, commencement, origin
sg. principium novum
pl. principia nova
exordium – a beginning, commencement; the beginning, the warp of a web (rare)
sg. exordium novum
pl. exordia nova
elementum – the first principles, rudiments, in the arts and sciences (cf. doctrina, praecepta) AND the beginnings of other things: “prima Romae,” Ov. F. 3, 179: “prima Caesaris,” id. ib. 709: “cupidinis pravi,” Hor. C. 3, 24, 52; cf. “irarum,” Sil. 3, 77: “vitiorum,” Juv. 14, 123 al.
sg. elementum novum

novus, nova, novum (pl. novi, novae, nova) means ‘new’
The translations of the latin word for ‘beginning’ are from Lewis&Short.
