The Indian Ink

Creativity knows no bounds and when it comes to getting inked our celebs have given a new definition to it. From their partner’s picture to their favorite quote these celebs have experimented a lot on the inscription. Some Hollywood celebs have gone to the extent of getting Sanskrit shlokas and Indian names inscribed on their body parts.

Hollywood celebs have gained ample popularity in our country. Indians first go gaga over their complexion, their way of living and their fashion sense but little do we know about their Indian obsessions. Yes you heard it right, Hollywood celebrities love Indian culture way too much and some of them have inked themselves with Indian tattoos.




Rihanna got a Sanskrit shloka inscribed on the upper waist in the year 2007. Her tattoo was a quote which can be translated to long suffering, truthfulness, self-restraint, inward calm, fear and fearlessness. She got an incomplete quote tattooed while the full translation comprised  words like pleasure, pain, birth and death. She also got into a lot of trouble because of her tattoo, of its positioning and the same was misspelled too.
