TV actor Amit Tandon is a big tattoo fan. There are total six tattoos on his body currently and his hands, too, are covered with personalized tattoos.
Talking about his obsession for getting inked, Amit says “Technically six tattoos but two of them are covered so I am left with 4 tattoos. I previously had a different tattoo which I now have gotten covered up and redone into this new tattoo. It’s the symbol is of a Sikh Nihang warrior and a hawk both about to enter a war and attacking the enemy. I have my grandparents’ portraits on my left forearm, a tribal lion on my right forearm, a tribal Aum design on my upper right shoulder and the Sikh warrior with hawk on my upper left shoulder. I was actually looking to cover my previous tattoo of a trishul and Shiv as I was not happy with the way it was done. I consulted with my tattoo artist Manjeet Singh who is one of the world’s best and award winning tattoo artists. He came up with this design for me.”
On being asked if the tattoos will pose a problem for him when he takes up role on TV, the ‘Kaisa Yeh Pyaar Hai Actor’ says, “Today tattoos have become very common so I don’t think they should be a hindrance when playing certain characters on screen. They can also be covered up with makeup.”
Amit was recently seen as a villain into two shows, ‘Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi’ and ‘Ye Hai Mohabbatein’, both of which are running under the Balaji Telefilms’ banner’.
The tattoo-lover actor has already planned for his new tattoo and claims that it would be his final one. “My cousins and I are planning on getting a small symbol tattoo of our family name ‘Tandon’ during our next family vacation in July. It will be an interesting symbol with a design of the letter T. My last tattoo was done in last week and before that were my grandparents’ portraits six months ago. The Shiva tattoo has been covered with the Sikh warrior. Now only one new tattoo in July of the letter ‘T’ and then that should be it,” states the actor
