Sushant Singh Rajput, who lost his mother at a young age, has found a unique way to immortalise her presence in his life. The actor, who has been toying with the idea of getting a tattoo in her memory for a while now, finally got inked on October 13.
Though, the initial plan was to get the tattoo on his neck, he realised the design was better suited for his upper back. Sushant wanted a tattoo that was symbolic to the relationship he shared with his mother. After a lot of thought, he put together a design with the help of his sister, Priyanka.
Tattoo artist Sameer Patange who has tattooed actors such as Sanjay Dutt, Sushmita Sen, Kangana Ranaut and many others, is the man behind the design.
Sushant says, “The tatoo is a symbolic representation of five elements. My mother and I are in the centre, implying it is a bond that not even time can defy. The five elements are widely accepted symbols. However, the idea of using my mother and me as elements was thought of by my sister and me.”
The PK (2014) actor is not the first one to get a tattoo in memory of their parents. Arjun Kapoor got the word “Ma” inked on his wrist in memory of his mother, Mona Kapoor. Priyanka Chopra tattooed “Daddy’s Lil Girl’ on her wrist after the death of her father, Ashok Chopra.
