Speak to Pradeep Menon from Dark Arts Studio, he is the best in town.

Brilliant work and a very down to earth chappie.

Charges about 350-400 per square inch and does a superb job. I can vouch for his work since I have 2 done from him.

Edit : Dark Arts Studio - Contact Us

Nothing, thats why Pradeep is around .

Yes he sure does.

Carry a bottle or coke/pepsi or something sweet with you. Coz if its the 1st time, with the constant piercing of the needle you mouth tends to run dry.

So initially have some coke/pepsi every 10 mins or so. Then once you are accustomed to the needle poking up start gulping Draughts . (Well thats what I did)

Post tattoo care, Pradeep will guide you.

...as poor old Saif will eventually realise. And let's not forget how Mr Beckam misspelled his wife's name while getting it tattooed in Devanagari script. I'll bet my bottom rupee that it's a Mumbaikar who did this particular tattoo.

true, people realise it when they go to remove it, and pay much more than they paid to get it in first place.

and then, there are those who love it.

Its worth it if you plan on keeping the tattoo for a long long time..
I met this guy at my hand therapy session,who got his girlfriend's name tattooed on every finger ( when you make a fist,the segment that you see b/w the knuckles).
Well, they were together for 3 days,and after a night of binge drinking,they decided to get tattoos done. The girl got 1 small one,the guy got 10 of them in total. They dated for 4 days more,and then it was bye-bye.
The guy spent 4 times the cost to remove the tattoos,than the amount spent on getting them done.

The most important thing with getting a tattoo, is getting a good tattoo "artist" and I stress "ARTIST" cos it is an art after all. After years of asking around and seeing the work of various so called artists. The best guy in Bangalore is a guy named Russell in Ulsoor area. I'm planning on a large tattoo and no other guy is gonna ink me except him.

Can be reached on 9845588748.

Mr.Beckham did not misspell his wife's name. 'VICTORIA' has been tattooed as 'VHICTORIA' in Devanagari script which is right.
By the way you have misspelled Mr. Beckham as Mr. Beckam in your post.
