‘gap’ variation #47 in Naskh script



This is the word ‘gap’ written in Persian (Farsi), and using the naskh script to create symmetric circular design that can frame something inside it.

‘gap’ variation #46 in Naskh script



I’ve tried to create a design with lines as rays, using the Persian (Farsi) for the word ‘gap’. I’ve removed the dots to make the design more clear. This design is written using the naskh script.

‘gap’ variation #45 in Naskh script



This design may seem like a pure circular symmetric tattoo design, but it is in fact written using the Persian (Farsi) translation of the word ‘gap’. The difference of this variations with the previous ones is that I didn’t include the dots in the word for aesthetic reasons.

Do you think circular symmetric designs look better without dots, or should they have them?

‘gap’ variation #44 in Naskh script



This design (‘gap’ written in Persian (Farsi) using the Naskh script) looks like sun rays to me! I also like the interesting looking pattern in the centre which looks like a maze.

‘gap’ variation #43 in Naskh script



This design is created using a repetition of the word ‘gap’. It is interesting how a simple word can create an interesting shape when repeated enough times!

The word was translated to Persian (Farsi) and written using the Naskh script.

‘gap’ variation #42 in Naskh script



This is a simple design created using the Naskh script. I like the simplicity and the resemblance it has with the petals of a flower. I used the word ‘gap’ translated to Persian (Farsi).

A note on the difference of Persian (Farsi) alphabet and Arabic alphabet: Farsi contains the same alphabet as Arabic, but is extended to include four extra letters for the sounds /p/, /g/, /ch/ and /zh/.
