Transformation Through Ink: How Aghori Tattoos Reflect Spiritual Evolution

Hindu spiritual tattoos have profound symbolism and metaphorical value. Their common themes include devotion, spirituality, protection and the connection between this world and the next.

As we all know, Lord Shiva is the ultimate destroyer of the cosmos. Aghoris, derived from Aghore, are the courageous individuals who worship Bhairava, one of Lord Shiva’s many avatars. They are the most devoted followers of Shiva. Aghori tattoo designs reveal the similarities between the Aghoris and Shiva, as well as the relationship between their spirits. With ash covering their bodies, they look just like Shiva.

Aghori Tattoo Designs: Symbolising Spiritual Evolution 

Devotees of Lord Shiva, one of the chief deities in Hinduism, feel a unique connection to him all year, not just during Mahashivratri. Many people get tattoos of Lord Shiva, particularly a Lord Shiva band tattoo design, to show how deeply they believe in him and how spiritually connected they feel. These tattoos visually represent devotion, which can have profound symbolic connotations. The amazing accuracy with which the Shiva tattoo in the Aghori style catches its detailed intricacies adds to its astounding visual impact.

A beautifully woven depiction of Shiva, central to the arrangement, adorns the Aghori’s head area. Shiva, a Hindu god of destruction and change, symbolises the cyclical aspect of life, reminding us of the ongoing process of creation and destruction. The tattoo’s integration of Shiva’s iconography deepens its symbolic value by invoking themes of superiority and cosmic interconnection that tie the Aghori to his chosen deity.

Designing the Aghori Tattoo: One of the Best Shiva Tattoos, Depicting the Mortal Journey of Lord Shiva

The hexagon at the base of theAghori tattoo design symbolises sincerity, honesty, harmony, dependability and love. Each side of the Aghori tattoo design represents one of these feelings. The contouring lines next to them may help you draw limits and define borders in life. The central figure is an Aghori, a solitary Shiva Sadhu, who is intense.

An Aghori is Lord Shiva’s self-restraint student, striving for enlightenment. In a symbolic connection to the client’s brother’s heavenly journey with peace and harmony, a figure of Lord Shiva, the commander, resides atop his head.

With its realistic black-and-grey design, the tattoo immediately grabs attention. The austere sadhus of the Aghori sect are characterised by their rigorous practices and deep communion with the divine. With its intense and hypnotic stare, the tattoo’s depiction of an Aghori beckons the observer into a profound spiritual quest.

Concluding Words

Aghori tattoo designs serve as a silent but powerful reminder that our souls are on a holy journey seeking truth, serenity and freedom in a world full of noise and distraction. We at Sam Tattoo India are firm believers in transforming people’s spiritualities into aesthetically pleasing and intellectually stimulating works of art using ink as the medium.

  • Choose a skilled tattoo artist: Find a tattoo artist who focuses on the style you like if you’re thinking about getting one. The best way to find out is to ask the artist directly; however, looking at their portfolio is typically a good guide. You should schedule some quality time to talk to your tattoo artist about your ideas for blending your tattoo topic with your preferred style.
  • Provide image references, if possible: Being ready is beneficial. To explain your imagination, you should provide as much information as possible. It is our standard practice to suggest perusing both tattoos and related photos.

Exploring Vitiligo Tattooing: What You Need to Know

Tattoos have become more popular as a form of self-expression and beauty enhancement in recent decades. Most individuals with vitiligo have also gotten tattoos to hide their depigmented spots.

Due to the discolouration produced by the skin disease, many people feel self-conscious when they are out in public. Because of this fear, they look for methods to hide or integrate discoloured patches with other parts of their skin. Although it’s a daily commitment, some people find that covering up vitiligo discolouration with tanner or makeup helps them feel safer. However, it could be costly, time-consuming and unnatural-looking.

Many people are considering getting tattoos as a solution to their vitiligo problem. If you’re considering getting a vitiligo tattoo, read on.

Covering Up Vitiligo Spots with a Tattoo

There are better options than traditional tattoos for lighter patches. First, it’s hard to match tattoo ink colour exactly to your skin tone because it looks different once it’s deep in the skin.

Moreover, sun exposure and ageing cause the skin to change colour with time. Your tattoo might look out of place because skin tone and texture can change over time.

Traditional tattoos have the additional drawback of leaving a ring of pale skin around the tattoo if the vitiligo spot beneath it grows.

Micropigmentation for the Treatment of Vitiligo

A more suitable option for vitiligo tattoo ideas to conceal lighter patches could be micro-pigmentation, also known as permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing.

In contrast to traditional tattoos, micro-pigmentation is typically performed with a tiny tattoo pen rather than a large tattoo machine, allowing specialists to apply intricate details. Pigments made of iron oxide are also used to imitate the colours found on human skin.

If you want to try micro-pigmentation treatment for your vitiligo condition, look for a cosmetic technician who has worked with people of the same skin colour.

How to Get a Classic Vitiligo Tattoo?

You may prefer a tattoo that is more of a work of art than a means to cover up lighter skin. Getting a tattoo of your own design can help you feel comfortable in your skin again. It can be as basic as flowers or as vibrant as a portrait of your favourite person.

However, people with vitiligo are more likely to develop skin spots anywhere they experience trauma to the skin, so think twice before getting a tattoo. The term for this phenomenon is the Koebner effect.

Summing Up

Getting a vitiligo tattoo is a safe, simple and effective treatment for vitiligo. It is more aesthetically pleasing, maintains emotions well and often has no major negative impacts.

However, if you have active vitiligo, the skin trauma from the tattoo needlemay enlarge an existing spot or cause you to develop new patches in the tattooed area. So, it’s best to avoid getting in the first place rather than hating your tattoo later.

Artistry Beyond Borders: Uniting Cultures Through Tattoos

Culturally rich tattoo festivals are vibrant celebrations that offer a fascinating window into the diverse tapestry of human heritage. These gatherings bring together people from all walks of life, united by their love for the art of tattooing. Within this eclectic mix, one can witness an array of traditions and narratives etched into the skin of participants. Whether it’s the intricate rabari designs of India, the symbolic Maori tattoos of New Zealand, or the newer modern art forms that are adapted by young artists today, these festivals showcase the beauty of our global cultural mosaic. Attendees not only get to admire the stunning ink work but also engage with the deep stories, rituals, and beliefs that accompany each tattoo, fostering a deeper appreciation for the world’s rich and interconnected cultural tapestry. In essence, culturally rich tattoo festivals are more than just ink on skin; they are living exhibitions of humanity’s history, creativity, and shared experiences. We got to experience this very recently at Kolkata Tattoo Festival that was organized by one of the best artists our country has, Niloy Das.

The convention was a 5 day event and it took place during Navaratri and Durga Pujo, which is one of the best times to visit Kolkata. Even though we live in India we don’t get to experience a lot of the festivals to their full glory. This time we got to experience two culturally rich events. This time around only 2 of our artists were participating in the highly anticipated tattoo festival. Artists from all over the world were in attendance and the turnout was great. Sam and Kapil had both participated in a color category. They both managed to win a price each in their respective categories. To win at a convention where the maestros and their masters participate alongside you, is a different level of achievement. The recognition we got after winning at the convention was unreal. To connect with old friends that we only meet at conventions and to continue making new friends everywhere we go, this convention was fruitful in every way.

After the convention was over, it was time to visit the infamous Durga Pandals of Kolkata and they did not disappoint at all. The grandeur and divinity of each and every Pandal was beyond anything we had imagined. The sound of dhak drums reverberates in the air, adding a rhythmic backdrop to the festivities. Not only the pandals but the streets were all beautifully lit leading up to the pandals, and the street food, oh the street foods smell wafting through the air, you could not stop your mouth to water even if you tried. Now that we had witnessed the convention and visited as many Durga Pandals as possible it was time to visit the other famous attractions of Kolkata. Kolkata, known as the “City of Joy,” is a place where history, culture, and vibrant life converge to offer a diverse range of attractions. The city is home to iconic landmarks like the Victoria Memorial, a stunning marble palace that’s a testament to the colonial era’s architectural grandeur. The Howrah Bridge, an engineering marvel, spans the Hooghly River, connecting the city’s bustling north and south. For a cultural immersion, one can explore the Kalighat Temple and the Dakshineswar Kali Temple, both revered sites for spiritual seekers. We visited one of the famous coffee places in College Street the Indian coffee house. To say that the old culture and new engineering marvels merge beautifully in this city would be an understatement. The city’s bustling markets, like New Market and College Street, offer a delightful shopping experience. Additionally, the diverse culinary scene in Kolkata, famous for its street food, adds a rich and flavorful dimension to the city’s attractions. Whether you’re exploring history, spirituality, or culinary delights, Kolkata has something to offer every visitor. Given the chance we would visit this city again for new adventures and experiences.

From Ink to Glory: Winning Big at Tattoo Conventions

Self-taught tattoo artists, often referred to as “scratchers” in the tattoo industry, are individuals who have embarked on a unique and independent journey into the world of tattooing. They do not receive any formal training or apprenticeship to refine their art, all they achieve is through trial and error. Practicing on friends, family, willing volunteers and sometimes on themselves too. They heavily rely on resources like books, videos etc. We too have one such self-taught artist “Saiyam Patel”. Sam is the man behind Sam Tattoo India. Having started learning tattooing by watching YouTube videos, saving money to buy his own machine and going to friends and family’s homes to do their tattoos to owning two tattoo studios in Mumbai, he has come a long way. The road was not easy but it was worth it.

Today, Sam has his own standing in the tattoo industry. Almost all of the artists in the Indian tattoo industry know and respect him and some from the international tattoo industry too. Besides working hard and being determined about where he wants to take his legacy one of the other important things to be known and respected and revered in the industry is to participate in conventions and tattoo showdowns to showcase your art. Sam has a number of accolades to his name and he managed to bag one more at Ink Soul Tattoo Festival in 2022. Sam was only there to support our other artists who had decided to participate, but when he saw that there was an opportunity for him to show his skillset he didn’t back down. The category he participated in was cover up tattoos. Sam is a fantastic cover up artist. He chose to cover up an old chest tattoo that our human canvas had.

It took hours of tattooing on the human canvas and trying his very best to cover up the tattoo on the chest, chest cover ups are harder than they look, but Sam is no stranger to a tricky placement. He chose to cover up the tattoo with a Shiva design accompanied by a galaxy in color in the background. To say it turned out superbly would be an understatement. It was now time to go up the stage and let the judge decide our fate. There was our human canvas standing on the stage and waiting for a judge to hand out cards to the canvases.

Soon enough our gracious human canvas had enough cards in his hands for us to know that we are going to be winning in this category too. At last, the host started announcing honorable mentions first and then actually announcing the winners of the category. 2nd runner up was announced, it wasn’t us. The tension was building, it felt like a climax of a movie playing out in front of us. Sam’s badge number was 8 that was stuck on the human canvas’ pants, we were screaming number 8 number 8 like a bunch of lunatics.The people standing around had also joined in started yelling Sam’s number, it was a sight to behold. Then she said “’and the first runner up with a divine design is”…… Sam Patel!!!!! We were jumping like maniacs and shouting his name and hugging anyone we could find, even the strangers around us were coming and congratulating Sam and us after the announcement. Sam walked up to the stage and we were feeling so proud that we could burst with happiness. It was the last day of the convention and 3 out of 5 of our artists had won in their own categories. It is safe to say that we left our mark there.

Sam always says focus on the art and the rest will follow. He continues to prove this time and again, we couldn’t have had a better mentor than him. Here’s raising a toast to Sam. ‘’As you ascend to greater altitudes, remember that the sky is not the limit, but merely a stepping stone. Here’s to your continuous journey to even higher heights!’’

Epic Ink-Off: The Moment Our Artist Won In His First Convention

Tattoo conventions are more than just gatherings of ink enthusiasts; they’re vibrant celebrations of art, culture, and personal expression. These events bring together tattoo artists, collectors, and enthusiasts from around the world to showcase their skills, share their stories, and immerse themselves in the world of body art. In this blog, we’ll take you on a journey through the dynamic atmosphere of a tattoo convention, from the buzzing tattoo machines to the meaningful connections made between artists and attendees.

In 2022, we had participated in Ink soul tattoo festival which was held in Bangalore. 5 of our artists had participated in the convention in different categories. Most of our artists were doing something like this for the first time, it was exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. The festival was a 3 day event and artists participating in different categories had to tattoo on different days. In that event we met so many wonderful people, some artists, some tattoo enthusiasts and many just spectators. It is safe to say that we made friends that will last for life.

Bhavin Gandhi is our resident artist who was 21 years old at the time of Ink Soul Tattoo Festival. Bhavin had participated in large black and grey tattoo category. He had been preparing for the convention for a few months and had taken his time to create a design that he would be tattooing in the convention, the details and art form was difficult to achieve in the time limit that was given at the convention, but, Bhavin isn’t anything if not resilient, determined and focused to the T.

After tattooing for 2 days in sessions of 7-8 hours each day it was finally time for the judging to begin.

We were all very nervous and Bhavin especially since it was his first time taking part in a competitive event and for good reason. All the other artists participating in the large black and grey tattoos were much older and much more experienced than Bhavin. It was an overwhelming moment, we were standing there in the auditorium praying and holding each other’s hands waiting for the judges to make their decision. There were more than 6 judges for each category and all masters of their craft. If the judge liked your design they would hand the person who you tattooed a card. Just like that the first judge who walked up to our canvas gave him a card and it was like we were on cloud nine, Bhavin on the other hand was getting nervous by the second. A few minutes went by and Alex Van Dutch who is a very renowned artist in the U.S.A and also the world came up to our canvas and handed our canvas another card, and another came soon after, just like that we knew that Bhavin was in the running to actually win a prize in the category he had chosen. All the judges had made their rounds and it was finally time to tally the cards everyone’s canvases had. The counting was done and it was time to announce the winners. More than 20 artists had participated in the large black and grey category, Bhavin had won 2nd runner up in the category. I think it was a very proud and inspiring moment to everyone, to see an artist who is only 21 and has been tattooing only for 2 years has won in a category where artists with more than 15 years of experience had participated in. The moment Bhavin went up to the stage to receive his award, we were standing in the auditorium close to the stage and howling and jumping like crazy people and cheering him on. This just goes to show that your age or experience may be less, but if your dreams are big and you are determined to achieve them, no one can stop you!

From Aspiring Artist to Rising Star: Ankit’s Journey to Winning the Young Talent Award at a Tattoo Convention

Upcoming tattoo artists are the vibrant and innovative souls who are breathing fresh life into the world of body art. They bring a unique blend of passion, creativity, and a deep appreciation for the rich history of tattooing. We too have such an emerging talent at Sam Tattoo India, this person is not just an ink slinger; he is a story teller, using the human canvas as his medium to craft narratives, express emotions, and create visual masterpieces. With a keen eye for detail and a commitment to mastering his craft, he constantly pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in the realm of tattooing. As he carves his path in this age-old art form, we can see that the world of tattooing is always evolving and discovering new creative ways to narrate your perspective through body art.

November 2022 was a very important year for our artist Ankit Parmar. Like many up and coming artists, especially artists who are very young and don’t have any or enough experience in the industry aspire to make a name for themselves early into the business. But, this doesn’t come true for a lot of artists. Ankit was an exception, his hard work and attention to detail in everything that he does had brought him to a point where he could see one of his dreams coming true.

Ankit had participated in a category that was introduced for the first time at any convention, the YOUNG TALENT CATEGORY Where all the artists were preparing their designs and starting to do the stencil on their human canvases, Ankit had no idea if he was even going to participate as he had already participated in calligraphy tattoo category the previous day and we didn’t have any human canvas for him to tattoo on. But as luck would have it, he decided to enter the YOUNG TALENT CATEGORY and we started looking for a canvas, we asked around the convention to the people who had only come to see the festival, we asked other artists participating if they had someone available who would become a canvas for Ankit. Finally, we found a woman who agreed to get a tattoo from Ankit for the category he was competing in. While all the young artists who were in the same category were doing tattoos that were no less than a half sleeve tattoo, our resident artist Ankit chose to do a tattoo that was maybe 5-6 inches in size overall. Ankit had decided to do a minimal realistic tattoo, which he is great at. He has been tattooing for only 2 years and was 22 at the time of the convention.

The tattoo was of “Jordan’s” the famous Nike shoes. A black and grey design but realistic. After many hours of tattooing nonstop, it was finally time to head to the stage where the judging would happen. Like every round, the judges walked the stage and looked at the tattoos done by the artists participating in the Young Talent category. Some of the artists had managed to finish tattoos that were covering more than half the arm or leg. We were very nervous when the judges were looking at the tattoo done by Ankit, it was the smallest tattoo in the entire convention done by an artist in any of the categories. To say that we were nervous would be an understatement. Soon enough, the judges started giving our canvas the cards and really squatting to see the tattoo up close. Finally, the results were being announced and held our breaths, Ankit was a nervous wreck and finally hearing the host announce that Ankit had won the 2nd runner up in the YOUNG TALENT CATEGORY made us all jump with sheer happiness and pride. This was the second win of the day for team Sam Tattoo India. To see Ankit run up the stage and accept the award has us all in tears. The judges were having a hard time believing that he was only 22, seeing the kind of detailed tattoo he had finished in the given time frame had the judges all shocked. They say you never forget your firsts and I am sure Ankit will remember this exact moment for many years to come.

Cover Up Tattoos: Turning Your Tattoo From Zero To Hero

Tattoos last a lifetime, but your feelings or attitude about getting one may change. Tattoo regret is one of the most common concerns people have when considering getting inked. There are a variety of reasons why someone could decide they no longer enjoy their tattoo. 

Perhaps it has reached the level of cliché. Or maybe it has simply healed poorly and looks smeared or isn’t up to par. If you already have a tattoo you regret and you discover a superior artist, you may get a cover up tattoo to hide the old one. You may achieve a whole new level of artistic expression and conceal your regrets with tattoo cover-ups. And it’s always preferable to have a laser procedure done. It’s less expensive and easier to deal with. Here is a rundown of everything you need to know if you want to take your tattoo from zero to hero status. 

Seeking Out the Creative

They are far more involved than just tattooing a design into a bare area of skin. Designing anything like this requires careful forethought and a solid foundation in inks. It’s crucial that you hire a good cover-up artist. Always read reviews and look at their portfolios before hiring anybody. Take into account not just the finished product but also the final appearance of the cover-up. If you can’t find an artist with a lot of experience with cover-ups, your tattoo will look terrible.

Options for Design 

There are limitations to what you can do when it comes to concealing a tattoo. The obvious solution is to make the new design bigger than the previous one. Therefore, you shouldn’t strive to fit the coverup into the same size. The artist has more room for innovation and higher efficiency in the execution of a bigger design.

When having a cover-up tattoo, how creatively should one be thinking?

The good news is that you may increase your design possibilities when working with a coverup artist. The top artists will listen to your feedback and make adjustments to the design accordingly. The artist’s goal is to come up with a layout that works well with the space available. Remember that the most successful cover-ups are meticulously planned. 

Cover Up Tattoos Using Blending Ink 

Your first tattoo ink is still in the lower layers of your skin since it was injected at least a millimetre into the skin during the tattooing process. When trying to cover up anything, new ink doesn’t just sit on top of the old ink. Actually, it mixes with it. Black and grey tattoos are easier to create for people who are just interested in having one. However, if you modify the colour, you’ll see a difference. The new colour will be made by combining the two inks.

It is unrealistic to imagine that a black tattoo can serve as a base for an orange overlay. However, if brown is what you’re after, the mixture of orange and black will provide a pleasing result. Colour choices are best left up to your artist’s discretion. They’ll have a clearer picture of how to adjust colour for the desired effect. If the odds are low, you may as well accept the artist’s recommended palette.

Minimal Tattoos in Pop Culture: Influences, Icons, and Trends

People have used tattoos as a form of body modification to express their beliefs, honour achievements, and demonstrate allegiance to communities and causes that are significant to them throughout history. Current tattooing trends are characterised by a variety of designs, techniques, and cultural influences, illustrating the industry’s accelerated growth in recent years. This article mentions the advent of minimalist tattoos, the allure of watercolour tattoos, and the fascinating blending of cultural traditions as some of the most recent tattoo trends popular among the best minimal tattoo artists.

Minimalist Tattoos and Their Historical Development

In this era of minimalism and clear lines, an increasing number of people are getting minimalist tattoos. These tattoos value restraint, as a result, they apply thin lines, delicate colours, and uncomplicated imagery to create subtle, gorgeous designs. Fine linework is a characteristic of minimalist tattoos, which place an emphasis on elements with significant symbolic significance. This movement may appeal to those in quest of a more refined means of self-expression. The wrists, ankles, and space behind the ear are common sites for minimalist tattoos, which offer an individual touch without overpowering the senses. Geometric patterns, single-line images, and brief motifs with significant personal significance are often used in minimalist designs.

Watercolour Tattoos: A Vibrant Art Form

Watercolour tattoos have grown in prominence due to their exceptional attractiveness and artistic appearance. These tattoos inspired by watercolour are beautiful and one-of-a-kind due to the way the ink combines and how the artist applies the design to the skin. The unpredictability of watercolour pigments can be imitated by creating multiple layers of translucent colours.

A Tapestry of Practises: Cultural Fusions

Cultural exchange has made possible the blending of distinct tattooing traditions in our globalised society. This trend combines elements from other cultures to create exclusive tattoos that celebrate diversity and demonstrate a global perspective. Cultural fusion tattoos are more than a passing fad; they represent the significance of diversity and the universality of the human experience. Painters often incorporate symbols, motifs, and iconography from various civilizations in order to create breathtaking and captivating works of art. Some individuals get tattoos to commemorate their travels, honour their progenitors, or demonstrate their profound regard for the world’s diverse cultures.

Technology’s Impact on the Development of the Tattoo Industry

In addition to fashion trends, technology has had a substantial influence on tattooing. The evolution of tattooing tools, inks, and maintenance has enabled the creation of more intricate and durable designs. Since they have access to more hues, artists can express themselves more freely. Lasers have made it significantly simpler for people to cover up or eradicate tattoos that no longer serve their purposes. Having the option to alter one’s tattoos in the future has increased one’s self-confidence and encouraged exploration.

~ by Saiyam Patel

Seeing as people all across the globe, including some of the biggest celebrities like; Liza Koshy, Rema, Divine, AP Dhillon, Ranveer Singh and many more were appreciating his unique and quirky art, he had an idea of turning these doodles/designs into something more permanent, he came up with an idea. Let us tell you how this idea came to be.

We have a client, more like a friend now, who has been getting her tattoos done by Sam Patel since a number of years who happens to be a fan of Jay and his clothing line. She had recently come back to India and visited Jay asking him for a tattoo design idea in Jay’s signature style, and Jay had come up with a design that Khushi, our client could get done. So there she was ready with the design and came in to the studio to get the design tatted on her. As expected it turned out pretty good and we had created a reel for the tattoo and tagged Jay and his brand and it caught his attention and that’s how the whole thing where Jay designs the tattoos and we do them started.

In March 2023 Jay had announced that he is going to be hosting an event at his JAYWALKING store in Mumbai, where he will do freehand designs on the people who wish to get a tattoo in Jay’s signature style. That’s when we had reached out to him and said that we would be up for doing the tattoos for him at the event, he said yes and the rest is history.
So there we were at the JAYWALKING store, mesmerized by the interiors and how well they reflected Jay’s own style, waiting to get started. Let us tell you, we had only been expecting a maximum number of 20 people who would actually come and get the tattoo, but were shocked to see that JAYWALKING is not just a clothing line for people but a way of living, and we ended up tattooing more than 200 people in 2 days. We had started at 11 am on 26th March, 2023 and we were tattooing nonstop till 10 pm. and by 27th March we had done more than 200 tattoos.

To say that the response was more than we expected would be an understatement. By the end of the second day Jay had done freehand designs on more than 200 people. This was a nonstop and exhausting process but it was exhilarating to say the least.

Not to mention, there were people who wanted to get Jay’s artwork tattooed on them but couldn’t because the turnout was huge and we could not accommodate everyone.

We were so impressed by both Jay and his team and our team to see such dedication and gumption. Kudos to both our teams for executing such an experience flawlessly for all the people involved.

After seeing what a huge success this event was at the JAYWALKING store in Mumbai, Jay decided to host the same event at his Delhi store in Dhanmill.

Jay and his team and our team had instantly hit it off during the first event. They are all very down to earth and humble people. Special thanks to Jay’s sister Hiral who also has her own clothing line “HIRO” who made sure our team was comfortable as they can be, always asking if they wanted something to eat or drink, just taking care of them like they were all long lost friends who had just reunited.

This bond or connection or whatever you want to call it was the reason that Jay had reached out to us for a similar event at his JAYWALKING store in Delhi. This event was supposed to take place on 11th and 12th of June, 2023. Our team reached the store on 11th morning and again was surprised to see that Jay and his fans truly share a unique bond and yet again ready to get Jay’s design imprinted on themselves permanently. We ended up doing close to 200 tattoos at JAYWALKING Delhi too.

And just like our experience at Jaywalking Mumbai, Jaywalking Delhi had a lot to offer in terms of fantastic people, the overall experience and the opportunity to be a part of something that none of the people involved can forget for the rest of their lives.

We thank Jay, Hiral and their teams from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a chance to be a part of this unheard ever before and one of a kind experience and most of all the friendships and bonds created that will be cherished forever. We look forward to many such events with JAYWALKING in the future to come!!

Cheers!
