Mysterious Arabic Calligraphy #2

Firdaus sent me the following picture with the request to identify the Arabic writing in this tattoo:

The writing is an artistic calligraphic rendering of on top:

حب (Hubb)

and on bottom:

سلام (salaam)

which mean “love” and “peace” respectively. Confusingly, the dot that belongs to the letter baa’ is placed under the meem for what I guess are aesthetic reasons.
