I sincerely hope you're not some neo-Nazi looking for an excuse to beat up a Muslim person.

Have you tried asking her?

I don't think it's possible to say what that tattoo says without a clearer picture of it, tbh. I can't even tell which language it's in yet.

If it's of any help, I can assure you that it's not Brazilian Portuguese. Or any Romance language, but for Romanian I can't be sure.

It says, "I don't know any Arabic". (The letters are all in their unconnected forms, which tells me that someone probably ran a phrase through an online translator and just had the tattoo artist ink whatever it spat out.)

Wouldn't an online translator spit out connect forms and proper words?

Depends which one you're using. And if you copypaste it into another file for saving or printing, any formatting information could be lost.

I've seen this lots of times. In at least one case, it was literally carved into stone.
