In need of help with a translation!!!

I'm going to get a tattoo and I need the translation to be 100% accurate. I wanna get "far over the misty mountains cold" in Dwarf runes, English runes to be exact ( The Hobbit). The only problem I have is that "ST" can sometimes be used as 1 symbol. If you look at Thror's map, for example, "Stand by the grey stone..." "S" and "T" are used as stand alone runes in the words "Stand" and "stone". The only thing I can think of is maybe the symbol for "ST" is only used in the middle or end of a word. Tolkien gives a description of this just before the first chapter of the Hobbit. Sorry if this is confusing but I really need help with this!
