Koena Mitra has got inked for the sixth time. The actress, who recently regained her single status after splitting with Turkish boyfriend Mete Meral, has got the words ‘God’s special child’ tattooed in Japanese on the nape of her neck. Mitra already has tattoos of an anklet, a waistband, and a trishul on her back, a flower below her waist and the word ‘love’ on her ring finger.
“When I was two days old, my granddad came to see me at the hospital. At that point, I did not have a name, so he named me ‘God’s special child’, which is what the tattoo also means. It took just 15 minutes to finish and was the least painful. My waist band tattoo took close to seven hours to be made.” says the actress.
Asked about what her next tattoo will be, Mitra says, “I have never planned my tattoos, so I don’t have a clue about the next one. The day I get married, I may make a ring, but I’ll never write anyone’s name.” The actress adds that she gets her tattoos at places where she can cover them up easily. “I don’t need to conceal my body tattoos, I can simply hide them with my clothes easily,” she says.
