Although Islam prohibits tattooing, there has been a surge in recent years of non-Muslims getting Arabic tattoos. From names converted from Latin to Arabic script, to words such as love and peace, the popularity of Arabic tattoos shows the extent of the impact that Arab-speaking cultures have made on the world at large from urban hipsters to bona fide celebrities (both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have Arabic tattoos). "Arabic Tattoos" documents this trend with color photographs, stories behind the tattoos and essays that examine the cultural ramifications of non-Arabic speaking individuals wearing religiously and culturally rich scripts.
