Arjun Kapoor Reveals His Latest Tattoo and it Isn’t Malaika Arora’s Name!

Arjun Kapoor took to social media to reveal his latest tattoo. Fans thought it would have been Malaika Arora’s name but the tattoo is written in Latin, in calligraphic font

Tattoos become an integral part of your appearance and become an important part of your life once you have one. Arjun Kapoor has recently put a lot of thought into getting his second tattoo and finally opted for something he really loves and has a meaning. While fans may think it’s Malaika Arora’s name, this isn’t the case. Arjun Kapoor’s second tattoo is text written in Latin and he recently took to his social media accounts to share pictures of the tattoo as well as the meaning behind his new ink. Taking to Twitter and Instagram, Arjun Kapoor revealed the tattoo in a tweet stating that it reads, "Per Ardua Ad Astra" which means through adversity to the stars.

From the pictures revealed by the Gunday actor, it is clear that the tattoo has been written in a calligraphic font which might even make it difficult for anyone to read. Per Adua Ad Astra is a Latin phrase which is also the official motto for the air forces of the UK, Australia and New Zealand. It was also formerly used by Canada and India but was later dropped. The phrase is believed to have originated in an 1894 novel by Sir Henry Haggard. While Arjun did not specify what he was inspired by he may just have been reading old classic novels.
