However, the friend was unhappy with all of her ink, so I asked if anyone else standing with her if they had work they'd like to share.
Alyssa offered up this Arabic tattoo, behind her right ear:
The script is the transliteration of her name, Alyssa, which she said means "flourishing" in Greek.
Definitions I have found point to it meaning "rational," or "noble," rather than "flourishing". Nonetheless, it is widely regarded as a very pretty name.
This was tattooed at Crazy Fantasy Tattoo in Manhattan. Work from that shop previously posted on Tattoosday can be seen here.
It just so happened I recently read the book Arabic Tattoos compiled by Jon Udelson. It's an interesting look at the phenomenon of the increase in popularity of Arabic script tattoos, and well worth a gander.
My favorite Arabic tattoo that has appeared on Tattoosday is this one.
Thanks to Alyssa for sharing her tattoo with us here on the site!
