Planning to get a tattoo and just can decide on the perfect design? Or just simply unsure which is the right place to get inked? Here are people who chose to bend the rules and get the most quirky yet deep meaning tattoos sharing their experience.
I have two tattoos both inked from The Body Map Tattoo Studio at Koregaon Park. I chose to design my own tattoos, both signifying things and characteristics that define my personality. For instance my second tattoo has mountains, forests all merged into on. The length of my first tattoo is 14 square inch and the second one is 15 square inch. I had an amazing experience there. I took my designs and they modified them but didn’t fiddle with the basic idea that I wanted to project. The first one cost me INR 3500 and the second one was 6500 due to an offer running at that time. It’s actual cost could be anywhere around INR 12,000.
