Tattoo Ideas: Arabic Words + Phrases

"Beautiful" Arabic tattoos
"Beautiful" Arabic tattoos

Although it is not uncommon to see Arabic lettering tattoos in the United States, many people residing in Middle East countries like Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia (particularly followers of Islam) are staunchly against it. Informed readers may be scratching their heads and wondering, "But what about henna?" You are absolutely right. Henna, the art of decorating the hands and feet with a paste made from the Hina plant, originated in the Middle East. The women there adorn their bodies with Henna to celebrate births, victories, birthdays, circumcisions and especially weddings. And yet tattoos are strictly forbidden because, unlike Henna, which washes off within several days, tattoos are permanent. It is unlawful to have anything on your body which God did not create--tattoos, piercing, even plastic surgery procedures are an abomination. Unless it is done to eliminate pain, all surgeries which alter one's appearance in any way are against Islamic law.

Of course, this does not prevent Arabs and non-Arabs alike from getting Arabic tattoos. I always recommend consulting several different sources if you're looking to translate an English word or phrase into a foreign language and are not a native speaker of the language yourself. When it comes to Arabic translations, however, this task may prove to be a bit difficult; due to their religious beliefs, some Arabs will not even partake in the translation if they know it will be used as a tattoo.

If you are interested in getting an Arabic tattoo, keep in mind that Arabic is written from right to left using 18 distinct letter shapes which may vary slightly depending on which letters come before and after. The shapes will change in order to be connected to the letters that surround it. There are also different types of script used in traditional Arabic calligraphy as early as the 7th century: Farsi, Naskh, Kufi, Deewani, Req'aa and Thuluth. Again, it is important to consult several different sources to ensure your translation is correct. Native speakers or scholars of the language are your best bet. Although the Internet is ripe with translation services, finding one can be difficult when it comes to Arabic because there are not many that specialize in Arabic translations. Here are two that I have found: Your name in Arabic and Arabic translator


"Holy warrior"
"Holy warrior"
"I will love my mother always"
"I will love my mother always"
"Serenity, strength, courage"
"Serenity, strength, courage"

angrylinguist 9 years ago

WOW these people were fooled. the top picture isn't arabic, i dont know what it is, but it isn't.

the first big picture, the last 2 letters mean brother the first few, i have no idea what he was tryin to do...the second one is alright except the last letter looks like it has only one dot, should have 2, maybe it does? looks like hebrew, not 100% sure, next, the mujahid, the guy who practices jihad...not necessarily a violent one, could be a self struggle thing to overcome temptations and all that fun stuff, next one looks fine to me, although kinda a stupid looking tattoo...the next one isn't love in arabic, love in arabic is 2 letters that's 4 there. it doesn't even use the emphatic h, just the light one, its just wrong in arabic. next one is correct. The last one is an abomination to the language. Those are letters ok, but random letters, arabic is a cursive script, they arent even connected properly, so whoever told her she got somethin cool was wrong, that's not even right in simliar languages w/ the same script, thats just 100% wrong in all languages, i cant believe you'd get that and not have it checked out, jesus.

the last pic .. the tattoos are all wrong!! who did that person consult with?? and the first pic isnt arabic!

bob 9 years ago

such a shame that people do not properly research tattoos.....better to wait a month to find out if it's correct, than have it on your for a lifetime spelt wrong. shame.

cuirous 9 years ago

I was wondering if anyone could help me.

I was hoping to get a tattoo with the Arabic word "love".

I may be wrong, but as I understand it, the are many different ways to say it. For example, there is <love> between friends, <love> between lovers.

I am looking for the word "LOVE" as in the concept--for example, serenity, courage, hope-->these are concepts.

Any help would sincerely be appreciated. Thank you.

Can anyone help me with the correct translation of SISTERS LOVE FAMILY

Thank you

Kate 9 years ago

Wow this is awful. The first tattoo... the very last two letters are fine, that does read brother, but the beginning? I have no idea. And the third one is Hebrew. AND the last tattoo... it is ALL wrong. You can't start words with thos letters, they are connected properly, and those aren't even words. This is why people should never get tattoos in a language they themselves cannot read/write/speak. These people deserve to walk around with jibberish on their backs for being so stupid.

Maja 9 years ago

wow! I am very upset when I saw some of these tattoes! I mean a tattoo is forever. WHY WOULD PEOPLE PUT JUST ANYTHING ON THEIR BODIES! I am a Caligraphy " Arabic classical" artist.

THese tattooes are horrible with the exeption of Hayam which means Love. Picture 2, 4, 6 and 7.

The first picture says relatives/Brother. But in arabic it does not sound correct, also the handwriting is terrible!

Picture 5 with the butterfly says " I will love my mother forever" But the handwriting again is like a first grader terrible!

Ohhhhh MY GOD! the last picture is a disaster! why why why... the three worlds are wrong, mis-spelled, missing letters, and incomplete. Serenity in arabic is SAFA it reads Afsa. The second word means strength in arabic is SHAJA'A it reads shataja. the last word is supposed to mean courage but its means retaliation.. and its supposed to say " MUQAWAMA" it reads MEMWAQA. Please sue someone!

ayah 9 years ago

Good grief, what a mess, especially that last one. The people who were asking about "love," don't use "hayam" unless you really mean an insane, unbalanced kind of passionate love....not appropriate for a tattoo dedicated to mom :)

Bit of advice, unless you're with a native speaker you trust won't let you make a fool of yourself, don't get anything tattooed in Arabic.

meghann 9 years ago

Hi Maja,

I am looking to get 'friendship' as a tattoo, as was wondering if you could spell it correctly for me in arabic. I have got it off an internet site, but as you are well aware, they cannot be trusted! thankyou.

Aicsha 9 years ago

why are all you non- arabic (not aribic by the way) speakers wanting to get tattoos in arabic? i'm sorry but you don't speak the language, you don't know arabic culture, you've probably never been to an arabic speaking country.... why?? really? that would be like me getting a tattoo in russian script. it's beautiful but i have no connection to it. have some respect.

Catherine 9 years ago

My Boyfriend is from the Middle East and speaks Arabic and while searching for some insperation for a tottoo design for myself we came across lots (and lots) of people who have tattoos in Arabic and he was totally shocked as pretty much all of them don't really mean anything, just people putting random letter on that aren't joined as they should be therefore the script is meaningless. His advice is never trust these translation sites or take a strangers word that it means what you think it means, only get a tattoo in Arabic if you know and trust the translator 110% You also have to be careful of copying Arabic Art from pictures in books etc as lots of the art has religious quotations in them and this an be offensive to some Muslims if you are parading it around on you body. I understand why people want things written in Arabic as it looks beautiful but be careful, show respect and only do it if you trust the translation!!!

beautiful isn't arabic.

brother, says "relatives, brother". its stupid.

forgivness is in hebrew but totally wrong...

peace has a wrong "movement" on the 3rd letter and it actually says "the peace"

the last one is totally screwed up....its crazy.

lol... As mentioned above, the arab speakers have confirmed that many tattoos shown here are actually hebew, NOT ARABIC! Big difference people, example of this is the one that says "Forgiveness". I just want to comment on one more pic, the last one is just a disaster, as Maja said. Why don't you people consult with someone before permanantly messing up your self. Also, most of these writings look like they were done by a 5yr old! Check out arabic Calligraphy: Its a beautiful art.

people: you want help in seeking an arab word - why don't you look upon a dictionary or something? about a date: numbers ae not as nice as letters - like in latin alphabet: not connected with themselves.

I agree: having shadda above Salaam is silly, but something (i cannot even say "some word") begginning with "t marbutha" and two separated "M"... sad, really sad...

"why are all you non- arabic (not aribic by the way) speakers wanting to get tattoos in arabic?"

Oh, maybe because it's a beautiful script?

It's also a hilarious assumption that people who don't speak a language know nothing about the culture. I know FAR More about my heritage than do people who are of my heritage AND speak the language (which I do not). Language and knowledge of culture are not two things which are dependent upon each other. It's the same sort of assinine attitude that makes you look like a jackhole and an arrogant ass. Perhaps instead of knocking people, you could try encouraging them to learna bout the culture. Is it any wonder people get stereotypes and negative opinions about other cultures when those who are part of it put up barriers and speak to others in a rather derisive manner?

morocain 8 years ago

the best advice I can give anyone looking for a word or phrase in any language is to search for them with specification to gender use and part of speech. If you want a descriptive word or phrase, you need to go beyond the root word alone. It makes the search much longer and harder, but it will pay off. I suggest using a reliable source such as a dictionary or native speaker to find a transcriptive version of the word and using an online transcription service to get the foreign script. I did with perfect results.

morocain 8 years ago

My apologies. I was meaning to say transliteration, not transcription.

I'm a tattoo artist in New York, I always suggest to people to do the research before you come to me. When it comes to other languages please understand it before you get the tattoo. I will not do a tattoo in another language unless I understand it. The pain of the tattoo is nothing compared to the embarrassment that comes with getting it and it being WRONG!

bswbaby 8 years ago

I understand why people would want to get arabic as a tattoo. It is a very beautiful language. but you shouldn't judge them for wanting it. I cant speak but like five words in arabic and i cant understand it written but that wont stop me from getting forever and love put on me. i do it out of love for my boyfriend who is middle eastern. Unfourtunately it looks like i am going to have to ruin my surprise and ask him for the translation. I refuse to let m,y body be messed up like those poor people in the pics.

First you don't spell salaam with one "a". Also one of those tattoo's is written in hebrew not arabic. Also anyone getting a arabic tattoo should consult arabic speaking person. You should also understand that different arab country's speak different forms of arabic. DO YOUR HOMEWORK.... As-Salaam Aalikum,

Just wanted to point out that as a Bengali person, I can assure you the first tattoo is NOT Arabic but Bengali. Worse yet, it is misspelled Bengali. Looks like an attempt to write "shundori" which means beautiful girl. The first character --which should be the english equivalent of "sh"--is wrong. Looks like the tattoo artist just drew a butt.

I am sorry to anyone who is offended by non-native speakers putting arabic words on their bodies. I am looking at getting a tattoo of the word love, as many people seem to say. I have been studying Islam for awhile now and though have not converted to it, believe in the cultural and religious understanding of many religions and I believe Islam to be one of the most misconstrued, misinterpreted ones present in American culture. Though I in no way understand what it feels like to be stereotyped, or condemned for wearing the hijab I believe in the understanding of our uniquenes. Anyways could someone tell me how to translate the word Love as a verb? Someone said it is just 2 symbols? 8 years ago

The issue of HARAM, you now that in fact the art of tatoo is considered by Quran to be HARAM or NOT DONE. Like mentioned on this blog. I with a muslim background always "wanted" a tatoo, but due to wat Quran or the holy book says i did not do it.Yesterday by coincidence i purchased a book on Arabic tatoo art, and started surfing the internet. And was really astonished how many sites and blogs where dedicted on this matter!!

So for al you youngsters out ther if u do get a Arabic tattoo where it with pride and dignity, and do not bother with somebody else hit opinion;

And i believe that the true almighty will forgive al these people with a Arabic tatoo.

Hebrew is read from right to left, not as English. It would look bad if written up and down and then one would not be able to know where to start to read.

Perhaps you should see the Hebrew alphabet first. There are no vowels.

Alyson 8 years ago

wow - there is an incredible amount of people asking for translations...I have a tattoo in French, a tattoo in english and one in arabic, because I can speak each and love the languages dearly. Arabic is an incredible language, and seriously - you should not be getting anything inked on your body when you don't speak the language and can't translate it yourself. I'm struggling to understand what meaning an arabic tattoo could possibly have for someone that doesn't speak nor understand the language, please help me to understand someone?

And also, along with all the rest of the people commenting about it, seriously, some of these tatts are disgraceful...loving the last one especially - poor girl. I mean starting with a tar mabouta and the final unconnected version of the h? Wow!

Please make sure you research your tattoos before getting one done - it's an incredibly long, painful and costly process to get them fixed, that's for sure!

-The first picture right in the beginning of the Article which is translated “beautiful”: Nothing Arabic about it. It may seem Arabic for a non Arab, but it’s not.

- The fourth tattoo which is translated “Forgiveness”: That’s Hebrew not Arabic.

- The last tattoo translated "Serenity, strength, courage": This person has really been screwed. I assume that the person who did the tattoo is using a computer to translate his words into Arabic, but his computer is not set up to handle Arabic alphabets, so the result is scrambled alphabets. The tattoo should look like this: ????? ?????? ??????

Ok...this site is a bit of an eye opener!

I used to want a tattoo in Arabic but after looking into it i decided against it, reason being as beautiful a script it is, their religion and culture are against it, and due to respecting them i would not ish to go against it! Plus this web page seems to be very high school, too-ing ad fro-ing of insults! Surely e should respect people and not be abusive whether they are for or against such acts like Body Art, even if it is in other languages? In all honesty, a name does look pretty firckin boring in English text but we do have to be respectful and careful of how we go about it! Personally, i no longer wish to go ahead but does not mean i'm going to shove my opinion down someone elses throat and try and intimidate them because they can't speak that language!!!!

Kai 7 years ago

First and anyone that really gets truly offended by the inaccuracy of these tattoos.....I am sorry that you are so turned off. I don't think its anybody's true intention to get anything so permanent wrong in the first place. If anything.....its a sign of great admiration for another's language or culture to attempt to get it as accurate as possible and wear it upon their bodies as art.

The bottom tattoo that is just 'an abomination' happens to be mine. While I openly admit that I didn't have a professional translate this for me, I am not going to apologize for the decision I made to get this as my tattoo.

For the people that are claiming that none of us have ever been to or experience culture in an arabic speaking country- think before you try to jump to conclusions. Just because I may not have translated you language correctly does not mean you know where I come from or why I got the tattoo. I may not have read or spoke the language, but I did live in the Middle East for majority of my childhood. Being in Saudi Arabia symbolized the happiest time of my life and I am really proud to say that I was able to live there.

sometimes when you miss a memory you try to capture and immortalize that experience the best you can. I did that with a tattoo resembling the script of the land I lived in and respected deeply. Yeah it may not be exactly right.....but its a memory that ties me to this, not the exact meaning or accuracy of it.

Like I said...sorry for those that are appalled. But just let it go. Be happy that it isn't you that wears the tattoo if it looks so bad. but give everyone on here the right to be proud of what they have chosen and stop scrutinizing it.

Farah,Amsterdam-Holland 7 years ago

Hannah 7 years ago

These are terrible.

The first one isn't even arabic, the 'brother' one actually reads 'relatives; brother,' like a dictionary definition, the one labelled 'forgiveness' is hebrew script which i don't read but is probably wrong as well, judging by the standard of the article.

'Love' is NOT spelt like that in arabic- it looks as though it is back to front and also the wrong letter H has been used (there are two)

The worst one is without a doubt 'serenity, strength, courage,' where the letters are in the wrong order and not joined up! arabic script is cursive and almost all of the letters join up, with a few exceptions. It looks as though someone has just typed the words into google translate and got some fool to tattoo them onto their body. Imagine seeing a foreigner walking about London with 'ereniyts thgstren couraeg' tattooed on them. trust me, that's how stupid it looks. Dear God!

Let's just hope these people never ever travel to Egypt/ Morocco on holiday

The image in the "article" isn't even Arabic, and neither is the Hebrew one. The only one that's not retarded is the Peace one.

Give the people a break. They will feel bad enough without everyone slating their tats. When I was 16 I had a tattoo done in Arabic and I just loved it only to find out it didn't mean what I think It did! I was heartbroken and try and cover mine up whenever I can so im lucky its small. Just lay off.. im sure they feel stupid enough.

Hey, I know that Arabic is only written as a formal language, & there are many different accents therefore some things will be slightly different. As I would like to get a tattoo in Arabic I just want to double check is this the correct translation?

OMG the last tattoo is so screwed up.I am arabic and I can tell you...the letters on that person,do not mean anything.

It is totally wrong.The order of letters is wrong.Because the signs you see at the end (the round sign with dots on it) can only be written at the end of a word.Which is in this case from right to left,how the arabic write,so that sign should be on the left.Anyways...still with that corrected it does not mean anything.So have fun with you tattoo!!!Oh yes...and the "love" tattoo..also nothing.It says Hiba or something like that...and love is Hob or Alhob in that's a screwed up tattoo too!

sam the arab 6 years ago

Don't bother getting a tat from a non-arab, you want the real deal you goto an arab artist to draw up the word/s you want tatted onto your skin.

Never get "ready done" tats as they're all usually islamic calligraphy and avoid using numbers. Arabic is written in calligraphy and can be drawn up very nicely, numbers are written separatley and don't look as appealing.

Keep in mind it's written from right to left (unlike english) and the slightest mistake can throw out the meaning of the word completely.

Randomness 6 years ago

Plug in the word in english, and it will be spelled out in arabic.

Take note, this does not translate the word you enter! It will only change the letters from english to Arabic. For example if you type in: "enter" it will automatically translate to "????". That however is not how you say "enter" in Arabic.

It is useful for names though, for example if you enter lets say: "Andrew", it will come out as "?????", which is correct.

Sorry if the site is confusing, it's actually a search engine. It's mainly for Arabic speakers.

char 6 years ago

Getting tattoos like this done that have no connection to the language or to your own personal experiences, is kind of pointless, but you can’t really look at these photos and assume that’s the case with all of these people. Some might be genuinely sentimental. I can’t really imagine somebody getting a tattoo related to a family member that had no meaning behind it.

kiwi9490 profile image

kiwi9490 6 years ago Tattoo Front (English) Back Back

Hey, could someone tell me if this really means what I think it does? My name is Keitra. I apologize ahead of time for this being so long but I felt that you should have the background to the question. My father has been in the Air Force for over 20 years and after 9/11, he was sent to Qatar (an Arab country). After being there for months, he was finally able to return home. When he came, he came with gifts from the Middle East for many family members. My mother, one aunt, and I were given a cartouche with our name in English on one side and in Arabic (supposedly) on the other. In 2009, I got my first tattoo (butterfly in memory of aunt) and in 2010, I got a cherry blossom and my name in Arabic added to it. I would like to know if this is really my name in Arabic. In hindsight, I probably should have asked this before I got something so permanent. Nevertheless, I feel that I would have gotten it anyway. I didn’t get it just because I thought it meant my name (though it did have a lot of influence lol). I have been wearing this necklace since he brought it home.

Thank you Zax Max. I'm not disapointed. I just wanted to know if it really did spell anything at all. Even though it doesn't, it still has a lot of meaning to me. I would never regret getting it because everytime I look at my tattoo and put on that necklace, I am reminded that my father loves me and was thinking about me while he was serving our country.

Any ways lots asked what love is in arabic its: ????? for 'the love' between man and woman- it back translatate as "the love"

as for love in general ?????? meaning "love" (but the general kind)

Good point about getting your tattoo to be looked at by native speakers before getting it.

I'm fluent in Mandarin Chinese and often see people with tattoos where the meaning is completely different from what they think. Often in some pretty comical ways!

@ katie

"sunshine" in Arabic is "sun ray" which is very formal & will look very bad & lose its meaning. so for a better outcome you can use "light" instead of "sunshine".

so, "you are my light": ??? ????

Hey numb nuts. Arabic does not equal Muslim. Do your research. There are plenty of Christians that live in middle east countries and speak the native language. Wow you are dumb. Almost shockingly so.

Ok, so as many people have pointed out, many of these are completely wrong. those that aren't wrong look like they were spit out of a computer, which they were.

If you want to get a tattoo in Arabic translated by an Arabic-speaking human being and hand-written in calligraphy, go to

To be honest, so what if it's miss - spelt (or not even forming a readable word), if you get it for the right reasons it doesn't matter. People who are complaining about these obviously haven't got tattoos and/or don't understand what it is to have one. All of my tattoos mean something special to me, so what if they aren't accurate? And yes, I do have one 'Arabic' tattoo. I knew there was a bigger than average chance that it would be wrong when I got it done but it's beautiful and meant a lot at the time. And still does.

The comments section here seems to be a Snobs Anonymous... feel free to dispute.

Dear everyone,

I wandered onto this site and have been a little surprised to learn how popular Arabic tattoos are. Arabic is pretty and of course all the more so, if it is embellished with exquisite calligraphy.So, can't blame you!

Well, just as a bit of background: Jews, Muslims & Christians, I was taught, generally have an abhorrence to tattooing and excessive piercing as respecting he body and preserving it as God intended is closer to the prophetic spirituality that these religions represent. However hard I try to stretch my imagination, I can't picture a Prophet coming to his people with a serious message adorned in facial piercings or sagging, wrinkly tattoos!

Anyway, look, if you are going to permanently inscribe a message on your body, despite all the regrets you may hae about it in years to come and also how ridiculous it will look when you're old and saggy, at least do it with respect, dignity and elegance - you owe at least that much to your body, don't you?

So a few tips:


as mentioned by everyone, make sure you translate well. Each word in every language has a basic meaning but also connotations, and if you use a word with the wrong connotations, you just make a fool of yourself and become the stub of ridicule.


Moving to Arabic is moving to a different literal tradition. It is written from right to left, some letters join, others do not. Some sounds are there in English (e.g. p, g, v, and sort of, t and d)but not in Arabic, some in Arabic but not in English (H, kh, S, T,D, DH, 3, gh, Q). Numbers wont look special in Arabic. Taking an English and trying to write it in Arabic script may just make an Arab laugh.


Many people say that Arabic is a divine language. It would have been insignificant and despised, were it not for the Qur'an, which raised it in rank and preserved it for all time. You may sense that Muslims are passionate about their faith and get hurt if it is disrespected - basically because their religion is nothing like the negative portrayal that it is given, in fact they see it as being about gentleness, love, care for fellow humans and treading a steady path to the meeting with God. So if you are going to the trouble of a tattoo in a foreign language it makes sense to try to respect the traditions of that language as well - i.e. do the job properly.

So there are words and phrases that should be avoided, just because you are decent and respectful and you want people to see you that way, so here goes:

1. Names of God. A definite no-no to have a name of God on your body, and even worse, on your but or legs or feet or ankles. There are about a hundred different names of God in the Qur'an, e.g. the Merciful, Compassionate, Loving, Most pitying, Kind, Generous, Nurturer, Creator, Subtle, Ultimate Originator of things, First, Last, Evident, Hidden, All Hearing, All Seeing, Most knowing, Most Wise, Forgiver, Effacer of Sins, Elevator, Debaser, Most High, Tremendous, Magestic etc etc

2. Names of Prophet Muhammad or other prophets - many are mentioned in the Qur'an and venerated by Muslims, e.g. Jesus, Abraham, Moses, Noah, etc

3. Verses or phrases from the Qur'an or hadith - sayings of the prophet Muhammad - which number in the tens of thousands.

4. Names of leading figures in Islamic history, particularly Prophet Muhammad's disciples or family

e.g. having Hasan or Husayn or Fatima on your ankkle, foot, backside or lower back would be seen as ignorant and distasteful/ rude.


You may have seen some Arabic and been struck by its beauty. This is probably because it was embellished with calligraphy. Plain Arabic is ok, but when adorned by a classical calligraphic style, it becomes simply stunning, jaw-dropping.

To become a calligrapher however takes years of learning and practising, of an art that goes back over a thousand years.

If you are going to the trouble of translating into arabic, and you are going to display this art work on your body for years and years and years, then why not make it stunning? Because that is part of the reason for the tattoo anyway isn't it?

So it pays to hunt around for a calligrapher to take your word and transform it into something astounding.

I have come across this site:

Josh does not seem to be Muslim (I think he's Jewish) so he seems to be happy to help people with tattoos and at a very decent price.

I have to say, I'm really impressed with this chap. He is a professionally trained master of calligraphy as well has have a good knowledge of Arabic, the Quran and Arabic poetry, the Islamic faith as well as other Eatern languages e.g. Persian - which is one of the world's leading languages for poetry - the language used by Rumi.

And Josh's calligraphy is exquisite.

If he agrees to do you a design, you will be a lucky person and turn heads where ever you go ;-)

how do you write if nothing else i am myself

In Islam tattoo's are not allowed they are considered Haram. Why brothers and sisters think it's acceptable is beyond me. Allah knows best and may he forgive us our short commings but think before you do such things. Peace & Blessings all.

coyotech 5 years ago

Yeah, the Hebrew one, forgiveness, is also wrong. The word is meant to be slichot, and it says slichoch. The lamed shouldn't have a point over it. But at least you can figure out what it was supposed to be...
