“Earlier, there were very few queries, but now we get around 16 requests every month. It’s common in the West,” says Lokesh Verma of Devilz Tattooz in Vasant Vihar. “We get maximum orders for navel jewellery. It is a 3D dangling design which looks like a real diamond, and costs R5000,” he adds.
“What I like about these designs is that they come minus the what-if-I-lose-it fear and look as good as real,” says Trisha Ray, DU student.
With the wedding season coming up, the ring finger band with partners’ names is also taking on. “We did around 15 wedding band tattoos this month,” says Abhishaik Madhur of Indelible Tattooz.
