It’s true; tattoos are to reveal your mind onto your skin. No matter what is in your mind you can shape it onto your skin in form of a tattoo. We’ve seen people converting their face into a skull by sketching one onto their face in order to show what’s under that skin.

If someone has to flaunt their profession they can etch a symbol of it onto their skin canvas like this cutlery tattoo of a Chef by Shanghai Kate (http://www.shanghaikates.com/). A keyboard key for a geek, a pen for a writer, a brush for a painter, a mike for a RJ, blah blah….! The list will go on and on.


Anyways, after this great tattoo now it’s a time for tip of the day:

In order to increase the life and newness of your tattoo place it on that part of the body which is less exposed to the sun. Sun is the biggest enemy of your skin and tattoo.

Say no to rings with tattoos on fingers

Yeah man, when I came across this tattoo my mind straight away said ‘why not have a tattoo and say no to those rings on our fingers!’ Rings sometimes irritate us, isn’t it? Sometimes they get entangled with your hair when trying to make a hairstyle or your clothes. Getting a tattoo etched on your finger is a better option no hassles and no burden.

Imagine the best part on your engagement, you don’t exchange wedding rings but sit in front of the tattooist to permanently engrave your better halves name, symbols or something which marks the big day. Interesting!
This tattoo won’t let your partner flirt with anyone else as rings can be removed but tattoos cannot. 🙂
If you have to show your big money then you can opt for expensive tattoo ink like colored or LED.

Tattoo Tip: Before get a tattoo, make sure that your tattooist always dips the needle in a small cap of pigment (squeezed from big bottle) before tattooing you. If the artist dips the needle into the big bottle, you may very well be sharing fluids with those who have had tattoos from that same big bottle, which can be risky.

Growing Tattoo craze in Himachal Pradesh

A small Om on men’s hands/arms or three dots on ladies’ chins are common marks seen on the skin of our elderly grand parents. These marks called “tattoos” are now gaining skyrocket popularity among the people, especially youth. Just to add some oomph to their lifestyle, masses get themselves etched ignorant about the place and person who is inking them.

Aman Devrani a professional tattooist from Manali, said, “In Himachal we see numerous folks getting themselves tattooed by tattoo-hawkers present in the melas. I remember once I had been to a nearby mela where I asked a tattoo-hawker sitting on the side for a tattoo, he told me a very cheap price and said that he’ll be using fresh needles as a safety measure. When I saw him working on a guy, I found that he did change the needles but ink, gloves, etc. were same. There was no proper sterilisation of the equipments and even the ink used was not of a good quality. This scene of severe health risk sent a chill down my spine!”

It’s sad to know that people are deliberately inviting hazardous infectious diseases to attack them from unsafe methods of tattooing. Many folks are unaware that they can be infected by surface infections of the skin, herpes simplex virus, fungal infections, hepatitis-c, staphylococcus aureus (infected tattoo), and HIV/ AIDS via the use of unseterilized equipments. This is not the end, use of FDA unapproved ink can also result to worst nightmare of allergy.

“Make sure the Inks are branded like Starbrite, Kurosumi and Intenze to name a few and not some cheap quality. See the place yourself and make sure it’s clean and hygienic. Do a lot of research before you tattoo anywhere,” says Lokesh Verma owner of Devil’s Tattooz, New Delhi.

Though, in recent years tattoo industry is gaining great popularity in India. However, the history of tattoos began over 5000 years ago and is as diverse as the people who wear them. It is believed that the word tattoo is derived from two Polynesian words – ‘ta’ meaning striking something and ‘tatau’ which means to mark something.

No wonder tattoos are a new way of expressing oneself and the best expression can be made with good designs and nice colours deep soaked into your skin. For all those playboys temporary tattoo like that of Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Kareena’ can be an option to show their mock-eternal love. Anyways, this is a kind of tattoo to satisfy your desire for a tattoo without permanence. A latest and hottest trend of tattoo art is “Black Light Tattoos” that are almost invisible in daylight but show in great detail in darkness. Though, black light tattoos are more expensive and take longer to ink.
