She is known to be good with words and now Sushmita Sen is letting the written word do the talking. The actress is not turning author but is using her growing collection of body art to speak her mind.
The former Miss Universe is the latest Bollywood celebrity to be bitten by the tattoo bug and has got four inkings etched on herself in the past year.
The 34-year-old actress' latest tattoo is a bold etching of the words 'I Am' on her right wrist, which she says is a proud declaration of her own identity.
"I love tattoos. I have three on the arms but the fourth one I cannot show you. They are all permanent and I think I will add more to them," Sushmita told PTI.
The one on her right arm reads 'Temptation' and she also sports a tattoo on the left wrist which says 'Soli deo glory', meaning 'Glory to God alone' in Latin.
"I love my Temptation tattoo, with the T shaped like a dagger. To me it means that temptation is a beautiful feeling, but it is equally dangerous," said the actress who was in the city to select contestants for the 'I Am She' pageant.
This brand will serve as a platform to select the next Miss Universe India who will represent the country at the global Miss Universe competition.
While Sushmita's dagger tattoo is edgy, most Bollywood celebrities have gone for inkings bearing the name or initials of a lover while others sport symbols like stars and angels.
