one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
I wonder if the tattoo is the name of her horse?~~~~~Je me demande si c'est le nom de son cheval qui est tatoué?
Now THAT'S the style of tattoo that I like!
I'm going to ask someone...Will get back to you later.Barbara from Germany
Hide those tats!
Your photo is stunning as usual and I am happy that she didn't hide her tattoo.
Excellent shot Jilly.
The tatoo means "Nafis".Barbara from Germany
Barbara, many thanks. And as you later wrote to me it means, in Arabic, excellent or valuable.
I came back especially to see if Barbara had a translation for this tatt. What an excellent tattoo. I gather nothing to do with horses, just self. What I especially like is the balance in the letters of the word. Are they called 'letters'? Maybe they are more shapes. It is a most pleasing tattoo.
Hello Julie, I hope you come back again to read this.. I wrote to an internet contact from Lebanon if he could translate the tattoo and he did. As I didn't understand well what he meant I sent this to Jilly and she found out more about the meaning. After that I remembered the "google translator" and put in "Nafis" and the arabic letters appeared on the right side. You can even hear how it's pronounced...http://translate.google.com/#en|ar|nafisBarbara from Germany
Thank you Barbara !!! (I am another one that came back to these comments to read about your translation eheh)
Nafis is an adjective.A female can be called Nafisa.There is alot of women in Islamic history called Nafisa and holds the same meaning of the adjective: precious, invaluable, priceless, Oriental, noble, inestimable.BestMMhttp://www.arabiceditor.info/
