From butterflies and tribal art to conceptual realism and dot work, Indian tattooing has come a long distance in the last decade or so, but on the national map, tattoos are still largely a societal taboo. And if you are tattooed, you know very well what I am implying here.

While you chew off all your nails in anticipation of getting the next tattoo done, the ordeals begin once you have got them. So here, I have made an incomplete list of things we have to go through for love – the love of tattoos.

1. People asking several times a day if it hurt
