Lenin’s tattoo has been nominated in the ongoing HYDERABAD TIMES TATTOO CONTEST
How long have you been practicing tattooing?
I’m not a Tattoo artist as my tattoo has been done by my friend Tommy Laishangbam . He is truly a tattoo artist. I just love to have a tattoo on my body which shows the logic of humanity, spirituality, expression in my real life.
What inspired you to have this tattoo?
I wanted to have a tattoo that is unique but at the same times express who am I as a person. I am very spiritual and perhaps that is my motivation and my inspiration.
Has tattoo as an art form reached the acceptable level to make it a viable business?
Yes. I believe we have come to accepted new art forms. There are tattoo parlors across India and there is a lot of people who has inked themselves.
Can you tell us more about your entry with the Hyderabad Times’s Tattoo Content?
I came across the ad in the newspaper and I decided to send in my entry. I believed that my tattoo was good but I never expected my entry to be hot listed. I am asking my friends on various social network platforms to vote for me.
