Welcome to Arabic Calligraphy Design. I practice traditional and contemporary Arabic calligraphy, and do custom calligraphy for tattoos, design work, and original pieces. All my work is hand-written, I do not use computer fonts in my designs. To get started, have a look at the Styles page to see some of the different styles I normally work in, or if you’re interested in a tattoo, click the Tattoos page. When you’re ready, send me an email at, and we can work together on what you’d like designed.

Mustafa Rakim's Rabbi Yassir

Available Works

I have a number of works available for immediate purchase. 

All are bordered with my own handmade ebru papers, created by floating paints on thickened water and manipulating patterns into the paint.

I can also provide frames and matting for the work. If you are interested in having it framed, please email me at

None of these compositions are my own; they are studies of great masters' works. They are thus unsigned and I intentionally leave pause-breaks in the letters.

I ship via USPS worldwide.
