Art that adorns the flesh…

India Ink, Star Style.

June 19th, 2009 by

It seems that celebrity ink craving is not limited to Hollywood.

Two time Filmfare and Bollywood Movie Award winner Sanjay Dutt has caught the bug, and from all accounts caught it big time.

Recently, while still on the set of Ajay Devgan’s “All The Best” Dutt flew his favorite tattoo artist to Goa to add another tattoo to his collection. A four-inch Tibetan Om symbol with Dutt’s Leo zodiac sign and his lucky number on the back of his neck.

The artist, Vishwas Dorwekar of Hakim Aalim’s saloon, had completed a tattoo of the Indian heartthrob’s parents names, and so impressed the actor that he had to have him do the Om.

Now that’s dedication along with ink addiction. How many American actors are so into their ink that they will fly their artist out to a shoot to get another piece done?

On the board for further work is an elaborate tattoo on Sanjay’s existing lion tattoo that has been estimated will take a total of 12 hours to complete. That one has to either be very intricate, or a full back piece. Too cool!!

Ya gotta hand it to the Bollywood star, when he decided to go for ink he certainly didn’t half ass the job. Maybe we will see some of our own stars really get into tattoos with the same dedication and still be stars.

Damn! Now I have a craving for some new ink and curry!!
