Persian Currency and Money:
The rial (ریال in Persian; code IRR) is the currency of Iran. It is subdivided into ~100 dinar but, because of the very low current value of the rial, no fraction of the rial is used in accounting.
The toman (ten rial) is now frequently used to express Iranian / Persian currency.
Prices are mostly marked in tomans such as 1,000 toman, 10,000 toman and 1 Million Toman ...
Persian Currency History:
- In 1798 the rial was first introduced as a coin worth 1250 dinar or one eighth of a toman.
- In 1825, the rial ceased to be issued, with the qiran of 1000 dinars (one tenth of a toman) being issued as part of a decimal system.
- In 1932 the rial replaced the qiran.

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.

Smog in Tehran:
“Sadly, there’s no longer the slightest whiff of the Orient about the Iranian capital. Pollution, chronic overcrowding and a lack of responsible planning have conspired to turn Tehran into a metropolis you’re best getting into and out of as soon as possible. The heavy smog, which hovers ominously over the city, blocks out the views of the mountains for much of the time. At certain times of the year, especially in summer, it descends with unbearable effect and drives people out of Tehran in coughing, wheezing droves, whiles the radio warns those with heart conditions not to leave their houses. In summer one breath is all it takes to absorb the full horror of Tehran’s toxin-laden air. Nearly 40% of all transport is in small cars, mainly Paykans, which pump more than 50 million tonnes of carbonated gases, including 1.3 million tonnes of carbon monoxide, into the air every year. In Tehran alone vehicles use up 10 million tonnes of fossil fuels each year and it’s getting worse. If the pollution starts to hurt your throat, or you have asthma, it may be best to head for the hills”, by David A. CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE PHOTOS OF TEHRAN >>
