A Persian Tattoo is a permanent mark written in Farsi (Persian) made by introducing ink into the layers of skin to change the pigment. Tattoos on humans are a type of decoration, while tattoos on animals are mostly used for identification or branding.

Persian Tattoo enthusiasts may refer to Persian tattoos as, "Persian Ink," “Persian Tats,” "Persian Art," or, "Persian Work," and to Persian Tatooists as, "Persian Artists". The latter usage is gaining greater support, with mainstream art galleries holding exhibitions of both traditional and custom tattoo designs.
Copyrighted tattoo designs that are mass-produced to tattoo artists are known as "flash", a notable instance of industrial design. Flash sheets are prominently displayed in many tattoo parlors for the purpose of providing both inspiration and ready-made tattoo images to customers.
