a muslim tattooing of the Arabic muminun is an example of what can be mistaken as sincerity (ikhlas) but is little more than an attempt at sincerity. a mukhlis (sincere person) would love to tattoo onto his/her body, but knows that it is forbidden, but a wannabe does not know nor would he care. here is a perfect example of honouring Islam by disrespecting its tenets- which is a symptom of the times, the most extreme example which is an islamist/fundamentalist. its the difference between Islam as an idea, and Islam as a reality.
