The tattoo artist uses a hand-held machine that acts like a sewing machine, with one or more needles piercing the skin repeatedly. With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets. The process is done without anesthetics and causes bleeding and pain.

Spiritual ill effects of tattoos !

Keep away from the western perverse trend of tattooing !

The perverse western trend of inking a tattoo on the body has become common among the young Indians. Previously in Indian culture there was a custom of inscribing auspicious signs on the body parts. But, now-a-days the malpractice of tattooing has become vogue. Due to tattooing there is spread of deadly contagious diseases. Getting tattooed to look different from others and to increase one’s beauty quotient is equivalent to nurturing one’s egos.
