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 arabic.calligrapher@gmail.com, and we can work together on what you’d like designed.

From

The Eternal,  The Everlasting,  The Satisfier of Every Need

The One who is eternal and above whom there is none. The One who is unaffected, unchanged, and without any needs.

The One who is besought by all, and who is above all. The One who can satisfy every need and without whom no affair could be accomplished.

The One who satisfies every need as it should be satisfied, and not necessarily as mankind might imagine.

The One who is the sole recourse, the only one to turn to. The One upon whom all depend, yet who does not depend on any.

From the root s-m-d which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to endeavor to reach or attain something
to turn to, to need
to direct oneself toward or aim toward something
to set up, to erect something
to remain unaffected, unchanged
to be sublime, everlasting*
