Tattoos mark permanence, not something easily associated with Bollywood. Yet, our tinsel town stars don’t shy away from showing off their love, life and passion on their skin. Let’s check out some of the best inked Bollywood stars:
Hard Lessons: So maybe inking the name of your boyfriend is not the best idea, but somebody should have told that to Deepika Padukone before she hooked up with the hottest Kapoor in town, Ranbir Kapoor. Though the couple, who acted together in Bachna Ae Haseeno, had an amicable break-up, the actress never regretted the ‘RK’ tattoo on her back. In fact, the actress even dressed it up to resemble the letters ‘TMK’ for her mentor Farah Khan’s film Tees Maar Khan. Recently, the actress even had a pretty anklet tattoo made on her ankle.
Saif Ali Khan
Temporary, Yet Permanent: Another symbol of love. Now the story isn’t as romantic as you probably want it to be. Saif Ali Khan was spotted with a ‘Kareena’ tattoo on his arm during one of his product promotions. But when the press found out that it was only a temporary tattoo, the Pataudi prince became the butt of jokes. Saif then wasted no time in getting his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor’s name permanently tattooed on his arm. The things you have to do…
Symbols of Love: What could be more romantic that two lovebirds getting a similar tattoo on their wrist? That’s exactly what Hrithik Roshan and wifey Sussanne Roshan-Khan share as a symbol of their epidermal love. Hrithik even went one step further and tattooed Sussanne’s name on his wrist!
From Father To Son: Akshay Kumar’s world revolves around his only son, Aarav. So it came as no surprise that the hunky daddy got his son’s name tattooed on his back. As an added perk, Akki’s character in Blue was also named Aarav!
Close To Heart: Ajay Devgan not only got his daughter Nysa’s name tattooed, he also had an intricate tattoo of Shiva made on his chest. If you liked the one on his neck, too bad. It was just a temporary one for Golmaal 3.
Going Strong: Sushmita Sen never has enough of tattoos. She has on each arm, one on her wrist and one on her back. Remember the one of Durga on her arm during Zindaggi Rocks? Sadly, it was a temporary one…
Doting Daddy: Frequent shoots keep stars away from their loved ones. So Arjun Rampal found a way to have his daughters always close to him. He has his daughters’ names – Myra and Mahikaa – inked on his arms. Cute!
Mark My Mantra: She may not have the best of movies, but Esha Deol can show off some fancy tattoos. The Deol girl has the Gayatri mantra and an ‘Om’ on her back.
Daddy & Design: Sanjay Dutt probably is the most tattooed star in Bollywood. Spread over his arms and chest, Sanju has a variety of tattoos to show off. Of course, the most adorable one is his father’s name – Sunil – on his chest.
