After last night’s final episode of The Night Of, Riz Ahmed, the actor who plays Naz, did a Twitter Q&A. There’s a lot of back-and-forth on his feed with fans, but the thing that stuck out the most was the meaning behind the Sin Bad tattoo on Naz’s hands.
I must have missed when Naz was asked what he wanted tattooed on his knuckles between Aladdin and Sinbad, but after hearing Ahmed give the reasoning behind it, it makes total sense why he chose the latter.

Truthfully, since I did miss the exchange where he was asked to choose between Aladdin and Sinbad, I just thought it meant “sin bad” like committing a sin is fucking bad. Which it is, so I’M NOT WRONG, ASSHOLES.
