Sanskrit tattoo designs Sanskrit Tattoo Designs - The Sanskrit language is a classical language of India, a liturgical language of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, and one of the 22 official languages of India.

Footballer David Beckham also carries a misspelled tattoo on his left forearm of his wife Victoria's name in Devnagri script, which is commonly used to write Sanskrit.
