Mideast Lebanon Shiite Tattoos Photo Essay

In this Tuesday, May 10, 2016 photo, Ali Hussein Nasreddine, 50, poses for a photo showing off his tattoos with Shiite Muslim religious slogans in the southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon. The tattoo in Arabic reads, "Oh Mahdi, 313." A growing number of Shiite Muslims in Lebanon are getting tattoos with religious and other Shiite symbols since the civil war in neighboring Syria broke out five years ago, fanning sectarian flames across the region.
